I am a competitive runner (mostly sprints) and a high school track coach. As a member of the Greater Philadelphia Track Club I compete in local and national track meets and local road races. My specialty is the 400 meters. As I mention in one of my posts, the 400 has carved a groove in my brain like the first lane on an old cinder track. I am a technician, and love learning about the science behind training and racing. I also really enjoy helping young people to become athletes, and seeing the look on a kid’s face when he or she really runs an all-out 400.
As a husband and father of two young children, I struggle like any other masters athlete to keep up a consistent training regimen, and pat of this blog is devoted to sharing some of my more creative approaches to running. As a communication professor, it is my nature to offer whatever I have learned to anyone who might be interested.
