I’ve no certification to coach running.
Such a title is not needed to be a running coach, unlike a dietitian or cosmetologist, for example.
Recently a Road Runners Club of America class opened up within driving distance of me, and I became interested. This is likely the most well-known coaching certification available.
I did some r [...]
I was deeply impressed by Race Raves just recently, and felt compelled to give them a shout-out.
The co-founder, Mike, sent me an email a while after I posted my Fargo Half Marathon review to their website.
He thanked me for joining, writing a review of the event at their website, and you could tell he read my race report since I mentioned h [...]
In June of 2016 Desi took students abroad for a service-learning trip to Ecuador.
Since I work from home, I took it upon myself to go on a bit of an adventure myself.
For the first bit of her trip there were some local running events I wanted to attend. I volunteered at the Dino Run 5k by marking the course, MCing, and running as sweep to pic [...]

Time to taper!
Fargo is this Saturday and I’m feeling good.
My weight is down, my volume is up, and I’m hoping for a nice half.
Here’s my last week of running. Desi and I went to Big Hill for the “10k” and it went well. I ran it about the same as I did last year, but I think I ran a bit easier this time around, [...]
What a super week!
First, I’m starting to work with two new athletes for some great marathons later this year. I also had a lady email me today with some questions.
I hit 10 hours of running finally again. It took a while to get back up there since the ankle sprain (but all is well).

Big shoutout to my athletes Nathan & Jeremy who both recently posted some race reports.
Nathan won a 50k ultra down in Florida.
Jeremy crushed a 3:11 Boston Marathon!
I could not have been more happy with yesterday’s run.
After a twisted ankle, one week fully off to let it heal, and a week at half my regular volume and only one good workout I ran the Cobblers For a Cause 5k Run/Walk and Kids 1 mile yesterday morning.
It was possibly my warmest run of the year thus far. The first mile [...]

I’m 5 weeks out from the Fargo Half Marathon and I’m just getting back into consistent running from twisting my ankle.
And I’m totally cool.
I kept active during the break with crosstraining and increased my time spend doing other ancillary [...]
