At Sleek Running we have one clear, specific goal – to keep you healthy. Everything we do is based around that principle. That means when we give you training advice, it’s going to revolve around keeping you healthy first, and performance second. As a result, we talk a lot about the best way to stay healthy – preventing injuries.
We believe that you shouldn’t have to worry about getting injured when you run. It’s just a matter of learning how.
Here are some questions you might have for me.
Why focus on injuries?
There are many websites, blogs, and magazines that focus on training. The majority of them have really good information and plans for you to use. And while Sleek Running will dive into training in a generalized way, it will be mainly to teach correct form with the intention of preventing injuries. My goal is to keep you healthy so you can become a runner for life.
How fast are you?
These are my personal bests for various distances that I have raced.
1 Mile PR: 4 minutes 41 seconds
5K PR: 17 minutes 06 seconds
10K PR: 35 minutes 37 seconds
1/2 Marathon PR: 91 minutes 27 seconds
Most of these times are from my younger days, although the 1/2 marathon time is from 2011.
Are you a coach?
Not at this time. For now, this website is my contribution to the running community.
Will you train me?
I am not accepting training clients at this time. All of my advice can be found here!
What’s the farthest you’ve run in a week?
90 miles. (It was not worth it. Unless you’re a world class athlete, don’t bother.)
My coach told me that everyone has unique form. So why should I be concerned with “fixing” it?
Your coach is right. Everyone has a slightly different “perfect” form, based off their physical attributes. However, there are many common elements that help you find the form that suits you best. That’s what I am here to teach.
Why aren’t you responding to my email?
Be patient. I do my best to reply to every email I get.
