My name is Carson and I provide coaching services for runners of all ages, genders and abilities. But why in the world should you trust me with your training, you ask? Good question. I’ll give you some background information.
I was always athletic in high school, but like many of us, I forgot all about that as the years wore on. Fast forward to 2003. I was disgusted with my appearance, having gained a ton of weight and was in the unhealthy range. I decided that, in addition to changing the way I ate, that I would start running to help with the weight loss. That’s where my journey started.
Now it’s 2016. I have lost over 50 pounds, and that’s significant on this 5’4″ frame, logged well over 15,000 running miles on the road and trails, and have run 5 marathons, qualifying for Boston in the last 3, with a PR of 3:10 achieved at 45 years old.
During this journey, I have consumed reading materials from Jack Daniels, Greg McMillan, Tim Noakes, Pete Pfitzinger, Arthur Lydiard and countless others in both traditional press and online. I continue to run high mileage with the goal of creating new PRs along the way. I’d love to help you do the same.
