GET TO KNOW ME
In 2012 growing up in Chicago, I joined the high school track team to gain fitness in the soccer off season. The team had a tradition of passing around a book to all new members, and I had a chance to read it after joining. "Once A Runner" by John L. Parker Jr., inspired me to make the biggest decision of my life thus far: To become the best runner I can be.
A few years later, in August 2015, I walked onto the University of Iowa's Track and Field team. Inspired by a new coach, Layne Anderson, I improved all of my personal bests from 800m to 10 miles by March 2016. However after a coaching change and a year of injuries, I took destiny into my own hands. In the summer of 2017, I began self-coaching to keep the promise I made to myself years before. I began researching the training styles, habits, and techniques of the best runners and coaches in the world. By learning their methods, I was able to develop my own. Now in 2020 my training strategy has launched me to new heights, and I am ready to share these insights as a coach.
