I’m a runner who is currently living and training in the Washington D.C. area. I’m training with a post collegiate group (DC elite) trying to give running at a high level a shot. My Running accomplishments and PR’s are listed below.
In addition to running, I’m currently completing my Masters in Exercise Science at George Mason University. I’m currently working on my thesis which focuses on periodization models for distance running training.
I have also dabbled in writing, as can be seen in this blog. I’ve written articles for Running Times Magazine’s online portion and am open to other opportunities.
I also coach distance runners/track athletes. For the past 4 years I’ve coached a great bunch of High School runners. In that period of time, four individuals have been top 10 at the regional XC meet, and the team has qualified for state twice, once finishing 4th, and then culiminating in a 2nd place finish this year resulting in the team being nationally ranked. In addition, one individual advanced to the national meet and finished 12th overall. On the track, I’ve seen consistant improvement in each athlete I’ve coached with the best ones running, so far (many of these have not run SR year track yet), 4:14, 4:15, 4:20, 4:27, and 4:27 for 1600m and 9:04, 9:27, 9:30, 9:31, 9:40 for 3200m. I’ve also worked with post collegiate/professional runners in both direct coaching and on a consulting basis.
