I work full-time and do some sports writing on the side. Since I have an extensive writing background, I decided to start this blog with the hope of helping and inspiring people to run and accomplish their running goals. My desire is to coach regular people looking to either take their running to the next level or who are looking to begin a running routine.
I’m a regular person just like you. I’m not someone from the world of elite running. I can relate to you and your struggles. I understand you have to balance work and family with your running. I can set up a training plan to help you accomplish your goals. If you’re local to the Los Angeles area, I can even coach you in-person.
