Winter IS Half OVER!

Do you realize that winter is half over?  That means 2 things.  Yes, we have a few more weeks of cold weather, snow and black ice to deal with.  But it also means that you are suddenly that much closer to your 5K or whatever race you have been planning for this year!  Do you have a plan?  Are you executing your plan? Are you ready to commit?

February, 2017

This is the key month to your winter training.  This is when you get your schedule together, run your base miles and also make sure you have all your gear ready to go for the year.  Do you need to order new supplements?  Do you need new shoes?  Did you plan out your running schedule?

March, 2017

Your spring races should be on your calendar.   Everything should be ready to go.  If you don’t have a schedule yet, this is the time to get one immediately.  If you can’t plan on your own, are you ready to hire a coach to help you or join a local team or club?  For the beginner, did you find your couch to 5K program yet?

April, 2017

Your races are already here!  Did you plan and execute your plan properly?  Only you will know at this point.  The rest of the year lies ahead and all I can ask at this point is, “Are you ready?”

Happy Running

I have been running for over 35 years, having done practically every possible racing event or distance from the 100 meters through the marathon. I competed in varsity high school cross country and track at Saddle Brook High School in the mid-1980's, varsity cross country and track at Division II Pace University and finished well over 200 road races since then, including 20 marathons with a lifetime best of 3:14:50. I was the president of the Hoffmann LaRoche corporate running team for 7 years, growing the team from 25 to over 90 during his tenure. I coached many of these runners to achieve their goals, whether they were beginners or advanced. In 2011 I was an assistant coach for the Fair Lawn Recreation track team, helping the 10 to 14 year old group. I am currently personally coaching dozens of runners, from beginner levels to advanced levels and getting them to be prepared to meet their goals.
