My passion is in coaching–in helping people unlock their potential and break through cycles of stress, overload, and inaction. My perspective and coaching approach are not based on elite performances and a career in professional athletics. Rather, they are based on nearly 3 decades of enduring and overcoming the Struggle in myself and others.
I deliver on my passion by speaking at corporate events and conferences, writing books & articles, teaching workshops and anti-burnout retreats, mentoring, and online coaching. I am the author of 5 coaching books: Flow State Runner, Hill Running: Survive & Thrive, Run Faster: Unlock Your Speed in 8 Weeks, UltraRunning: A Coach’s Guide, and Running Heavy.
I’ve been described as having infectious enthusiasm, relentless positive energy, and always a smile to share. Truth is, I’m just thrilled to be alive and to have the chance to pursue my passions on a daily basis. I love helping people improve their lives and offering them tools and insights for thriving in adversity. The more opportunities I have to make new connections and help people awaken and strengthen their Inner Coach’s voice, the happier and more fulfilled I am.
