Jeff was just an average high school runner who trained hard and made the US Olympic Team in 1972 as a 10k runner and an alternate in the marathon. Since then, the force of his life has been helping others to enjoy the experience of running and the achievement of finishing a challenging event.Jeff’s specialty is maximizing the enjoyment and satisfaction of running, while minimizing the time spent, the injuries and the fatigue. He keeps innovating and articulating techniques which help average people enjoy running more, run faster and reduce injuries.In Jeff’s training programs across North America, thousands of beginners finish a marathon six months after taking their first step. More important to Jeff is that most of these folks are then hooked on fitness.Jeff is the official training consultant for the runDisney series of 5k, 10k, 13.1 & 26.2 events, and speaks to over 200 groups every year. He visits Lakeland in June to kick off our training season.In 2013, Jeff qualified for the Boston Marathon (at age 68).
