About the coach

matt_wv_5k_run_coach

I started coaching the Genesis 5k training program to help people get off the couch and get active. The original couch potato was my dad who at the age of 64 went from barely running ¼ mile to running the 4 mile leg of a relay in just 9 weeks. The next year he ran his first half marathon and the following year completed his first marathon.

I believe running is the easiest, most affordable, most portable and most efficient exercise you can do. But I’ve also found that so many people don’t know where to start. And that’s why I’m here to help.

I’m the first and only a Road Runner Club of America Certified Running Coach in West Virginia. The RRCA Coaching Certification program trains coaches to work with adult road runners at all levels, beginner to advanced. By offering a coaching program for road running, they hope people will be attracted to the sport, and more importantly, by working with a coach to train intelligently, they will be able to extend their running careers, have more fun running, and minimize the risks of overuse injuries.  To learn more about RRCA Certified Coaches click here.

In the end my goal is to equip each runner with the knowledge and skills to take ownership of their own running career and success.

So get out, get active, and run for your life.

Favorite running quote: “That was the fast time ever recorded, except for the world record.”
