I started running 12 years ago and have always just ran miles and never did any workouts. I decided I wanted to see what I could accomplish in my running if I did workouts and followed a plan instead of just randomly running. Mark listened to both my goal of a marathon PR and my needs such as 2 days of rest per week. I started by training for a half marathon using a plan Mark tailored for me and ended up with a PR. I then continued right into the full marathon plan and another PR. Mark truly helped me reach my potential and I found the workouts to be great confidence builders. The support Mark gave to me throughout the training is what truly kept me on track. When I had a bad workout or was feeling run down, he listened and then told me how to move forward. If the plan needed to be changed he was flexible. He ultimately did an amazing job of customizing the plan to my needs and abilities.
Being new to the half marathon world, I was lost with training but when I contacted Mark he was willing to help. We sat down and he got a detailed history of my mileage, any injuries, and the goals I had with the race. Mark is really flexible with training and is willing to customize a plan fitted just for you and will customize the plan to your strengths. He brings great energy to training and is a tremendous motivator and will get the best out of you with each workout. I was lucky enough to have him coach me with my first half marathon and will definitely be going back to have him coach me in the future!
Don't just take my word for it.
