Hello.  I am the Founder and Head Coach of Team Persevere. I am a USA Track & Field Level 1 Certified Coach. I am an RRCA Certified Coach.  I am also a Team In Training Certified Coach. I coached walk and run marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay teams for Team In Training in 2006-07 and 2012-2013. I coached the Greater Maryland Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association’s marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay team for its first three years (2008-2010).

I coached Fleet Feet Sports Baltimore teams at distances from 5K to half marathon from 2008-2012.  Athletes in those programs successfully completed the Resolution Run 5K, the Cold Turkey 10K, the Clyde’s American 10K, the “Making Tracks for Celiacs” 10K, the Maryland Half Marathon, the Frederick Half Marathon, the Ocean City Half Marathon, the IronGirl Columbia Half Marathon, as well as other half marathon events.

I was the head coach of the Park Heights Community Health Alliance’s Walk-Jog-Run program in 2012.

I am a long-distance runner.  I have completed twelve marathons and twenty-six half marathons including the New York City Marathon twice, the Marine Corps Marathon three times, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge twice (a half marathon on Saturday followed by a marathon on Sunday at Walt Disney World), the Baltimore Marathon, Half Marathon, and Marathon Relay.

I have trained hundreds of athletes who have successfully completed races and set personal records at distances from 5K through marathon.

Q Training

Can you devote thirty minutes to an hour a day for three days a week to run or interval run (run/walk)? Or, can you walk 15 to 30 minutes a day five days a week?

Would you like to get personalized training from an experienced USA Track & Field and Road Runners Club of America certified coach?

Are you ready to experience what it's like to run, walk or interval run (run/walk) in emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental rhythm? To achieve, or better yet, exceed your objective?

Run, walk, or interval run (run/walk) to train for a 5K, a 10K, a 10-miler, a half marathon, or a marathon relay. Combine running, walking, or interval running with rest and an improved daily diet to better your health.
