like, I've lost a third of my body weight compared to over a decade ago, fat.
I wanted to tell you this for two reasons.
1) There's no such thing as TMI in a client - coach relationship.
2) I'm just a normal person who really likes running. I'm not a super talented elite runner. I really, really, really hated the mile run during the Presidential Fitness Test. Frack that mile run, what a nightmare.
In high school I decided to change my life. During the process of losing what has now been 80 pounds I gained an interest in health, exercise, and nutrition. This continued on into college where I took exercise science and physiology classes and earned a degree in nutrition.
All the while during and after university, my quest for knowledge and helping others never wavered. I continually was learning and helping others. So much that eventually I was able to pursue run coaching part time, having such success that I now do it full time.
"If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life."
The Dalai Lama said that the purpose of life is to improve the happiness of other people. My wife and I literally have the full quote hanging up in our house and we try to live by it every day. In my own little way I look at run coaching as my way of increasing the happiness in the world. Many of my athletes have been injured in the past, not reached their running goals, or simply use / need running as a means to escape their hectic lives. I'm so grateful to be able to work in a way to help people live better lives!
So that means I spend my days helping as many people as possible. Be it via a coach-client relationship, writing articles or being featured in numerous online websites, or publishing videos, or chatting on social media - my goal is to add value.
So, ready to let me HELP you?!
