Physical Therapist, Run Coach & 6X Boston Qualifier | Founder of RunSmart
I’m a Physical Therapist who has a passion for running and helping runners train smarter, run consistently, and prevent injury. I’m also blessed with an amazing family that includes two beautiful children, a wonderful wife, and a crazy pup – Winston.
Like most runners, my running career didn’t start until later in life.
While earning my Doctorate in Physical Therapy, I took up running to reduce stress and improve my health. My few runs per week evolved and lead me into running a marathon.
After struggling to finish my first and then my second marathon, I realized that my training was far from ideal.
My generic training plan didn’t account for my goals, ability, or schedule.
Frustrated with my results, I began to use my knowledge in exercise science and Physical Therapy to craft a plan that worked for me.
The result? I brought my marathon time down from over four hours to under three – including six Boston Qualifier runs and a PR of 2:51.
The success led me to coaching and implementing my training methods with other runners. As others achieved results, I saw an opportunity to provide the same proven training to others – without the high cost of a coach, trainer, or gym.
And with that, RunSmart was born.
RunSmart exists to help runners over 40 achieve their goals, run faster, and stay injury-free.
We offer Physical Therapist-designed strength workouts, training plans, and more – without the high cost of a coach, trainer, or gym.
