Note: The above listed athletes are some of the most decorated / accomplished athletes that I’ve been lucky enough to be associated with as a teacher/coach. There have also been many less talented athletes that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Through their passion, drive and dedication to running, they became champions in their own right.
