Whether you want to build endurance, score a PR, or improve your health, I hope my programs, podcasts and blog posts will contribute to your success.
Both the podcasts and blog posts explain how to train wisely, but they also offer inspiration to provide the constant stream of motivation you need.
By the time I became a certified coach, I had been running 30 years; yet, I was blown away by how much I learned and how much it immediately improved my running.
That’s when I set out to spread the word about the proven, most successful ways to train.
When you train wisely, you stay healthy, allowing you to then focus on achieving your goals. It’s not rocket science; it’s just a few basic principles that anyone can easily understand and apply.
Consider this: Smart training is more efficient. No one can completely avoid injuries, but following a handful of basic guidlines will keep you on the trails and out of doctors’ offices most of the time.
Even if you work with a running coach, that coach can’t always be there when you make a critical decision, but if you understand the training principles, you’ll make wise choices.
You can have what I have. I’m 63 years old, and I feel great. I don’t take any medications, my blood pressure is low, my blood work is excellent, my knees are fine; yet I run from 25 to 40 miles per week and do, on average, 10 half marathons a year with the occasional marathon or 50k thrown in.
No matter your age, I want to help you keep running to enjoy excellent health for the rest of your life.
Whether you’ve never been fit before and are still a beginner runner, or you’ve been a running for years, but are looking for a brand new shiny PR, following these guidelines is the path to success.
Harriette Thompson set the record this year for the oldest female to finish a marathon at 92, and she started running in her 70’s!!!
In 2013, I stopped coloring my hair. I want people to know my age because I want to change the way people think about age and aging. If you keep running, 60 can be the new 40. Heck, 70 can be the new 40.
Running really is the fountain of youth; it’s your best shot at having a long, healthy life, an important message for runners of all ages because it changes your outlook on life. Be sure to read my article “Running: The Fountain of Youth.”
