I am a life long running enthusiast with a passion to coach runners to reach their maximum abilities. My running experience includes high school cross country and track, completing multiple 5k's and half marathons. I just recently completed my sixteenth marathon. I have learned from many years of running experience and pass that knowledge along to other runners. In my years as a high school cross country and track coach, I have developed a running program that has lead to improvement and success. I will be a great asset to the running programs at Earlham College.
