World-Class Ultramarathon Coaching since 1988
"Prepare to Better Your Best"
Thinking Leadville? New to ultramarathoning? Now's the time to take action ... for 2014. If you have run at least a marathon in 5 hours or less recently, NOW is an excellent time to begin the build up that will lead first to 50 km events, then to 50 mile events, then to an 'easy' 100 mile completion - think Rocky Raccoon 2014 or Umstead 2014 - and finally the ultimate ... FINISHING the Leadville Trail 100. It can be done if you act now. You can be a Leadville FINISHER in 2014. Interested? Contact me at email@example.com and let's talk.
For the past 25 years, I have prepared runners for success at ultramarathon events around the world. I specialized in assisting motivated, disciplined runners to "better their best" whether that meant completing one's first ultramarathon or winning a national championship.
I have coached runners to finishes at: the Angeles Crest 100 Mile; the Hardrock 100 Mile; the Leadville 100 Mile; the Western States 100; the Wasatch Front 100 Mile; the Vermont 100 Mile; the Old Dominion 100 Mile; the Umstead 100 Mile; the Bighorn 100 Mile; the Bear 100 Mile; the Heartland 100 Mile; the Plain 100 Mile; the Mile High 100 Mile; the Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile; the Lean Horse 100 Mile; the Mother Road 100 Mile; the Rocky Road 100 Mile; the Kettle Moraine 100 Mile; the Badwater 135 Mile and Solo 146 Mile; the Grand Slam, and stage races to include the Marathon des Sables and the Himalayan 100 Mile ... and most recently the 2013 Indiana Trail 100.
I have coached Champions at: the Leadville 100 Mile; the Old Dominion 100 Mile; the Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile; the Mile High 100 Mile; the Plain 100 Mile; the USA National 50 Mile Championship; USA National 100 KM Championship; USA National 24 Hour Championship; Marathon des Sables Stage Race; and the Himalayan 100 Stage Race.
While I have personally retired at age 60 from ultrarunning, I will continue to provide coaching and race support services to my current clients who seek to 'Better Their Best'. I will also consider Leadville 100 students aiming at a 2013 buckle - I'm especially interested in runners who DNF'ed in either 2011 or 2012 and wish to rectify that situation in 2013. Coaching Fees will remain at $275 per month for Leadville training. Badwater - solo or race - clients are also of high interest to me for the 2013 season. Please note that I will only take 10 students for the 2013 season.
Additionally, I will continue to provide private consultations by phone and in person to novice and veteran ultrarunners who demonstrate motivation, discipline and willingness to learn. My love of the sport continues and I continue to thrive on sharing the knowledge gained over the past 25 years of ultramarathon coaching especially when it comes to the Leadville Trail 100 and desert racing. I will continue to be available to travel to provide on-site training and racing support. For all the above opportunities, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your desires and qualifications. Fees for a 90 minute consultation are $60.
Expect a comprehensive book by me on ultramarathon training to be published in 2014 as well as a definitive guide to training for and finishing the Leadville Trail 100 based on what I learned over the past 25 years of coaching.
Me ... I'm looking at new personal goals to include becoming a Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hiker as well as to expand my knowledge and completion of the Grand Canyon's more obscure and challenging off-trail routes ... and returning to Leadville in 2014 as a runner to earn a third buckle there ... this time at age 61.

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you — beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.”
-Edward Abbey in Desert Solitaire
