Who Are We?

We are a New York based husband and wife running pair. We are parents in our early 30s and have combined to run over 30 marathons as well as many shorter races.

We do almost all of our running in New York City's Central Park and we run every mile that we can together. We also like to travel to races and plan to run a marathon or half marathon in all 50 states eventually (so far we've covered fifteen). We practice healthy eating and healthy living. We are mostly vegetarian and fully dedicated to running as a lifestyle.

For whatever it's worth, our marathon PRs are 2:54 and 3:08, but we're much prouder of our consistency than our PRs. We've both qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon every year since first qualifying, we've completed every marathon we've started in under 3:30, we both run upwards of 80 miles almost every week of the year, and we both have run at least 5 marathons within 5 minutes of our PR.

In a nutshell, that's the kind of consistency we pride ourselves in and hope to share with other runners through this website and our coaching.


What's Our Coaching Philosophy?

In one word: consistency (see above).  The key to successful and healthy running is consistently running lots of miles year round whether or not you have a race on the horizon. While running groups, speed work, and running social events/races can help keep you motivated, lifelong running consistency comes from the dedication, personal choices, and embracing running as a lifestyle.

That's why our training plans and coaching are done almost exclusively online, because it is the simplest and most focussed way for us to help other runners explore running as a lifestyle. We're not really about numbers and Xs and Os and we don't believe in any one set formula to help a runner succeed. Our advice and coaching is to help you through the various challenges that running and life may pose to keep you healthy and running more miles.  We believe that anyone who can stay healthy, run more, and embrace running as a lifestyle will see improvements in their running and be able to reach their running goals.

No particular training plan or advice fits every runner, that's why all of our coaching advice and training plans are customized and personalized.  At the end of the day, every individual runner knows their own best training plan, but our years of running experience can help you find your ultimate lifelong running plan and avoid some missteps along the way.

Our philosophy sounds pretty serious, but most importantly running should be fun and make your life fuller and happier.
