“I help busy clients set and achieve bold running goals.”

Welcome to GB Running LLC, an online coaching and running resource! I am a greater New York City RRCAUSATF and Daniels VDOT certified running coach, the founder of GB Running and I am passionate about coaching runners. Throughout my running career I have completed countless races within New York and elsewhere – including ten marathons and all of the U.S. Marathon Majors: New York (1x), Chicago (2x) and Boston (5x).

Whether you are new to running and looking for someone to help you get to the starting line of a new race distance or an experienced runner looking to better your best times – you will be in very professional hands with me. The athletes on our roster range in ability from novices with some experience to elite runners preparing to run an Olympic qualifying standard. The bulk of those athletes are individuals who balance work, family and other commitments with their running.

Over the five years from 2009-2013 I led all coaching for the JackRabbit Sports NYC/fall marathon program (Manhattan) and, during that time, oversaw the training for hundreds of runners. More recently, I have partnered with the Run SMART Project as a private coach and, in the greater NYC area, have led half marathon and marathon training groups using training theory created and endorsed by legendary running coach, Dr. Jack Daniels.

I consider myself a lifelong learner which means I am constantly reading, taking classes and furthering my knowledge of running – I love to pass that knowledge on to others! I understand the need to create a sensible work-life balance and running may serve as a reprieve from countless professional hours at the office or the tool you use to introduce structure into your day. Whatever your needs, I would be delighted to assist you further and guide you safely as you attempt to achieve your goals.

Contact me and let’s begin the journey to the starting line – together!
