Running & Coaching

 ….. is my first love. I have raced ultra-distance competitively since 1990, my main event the challenging Comrades Marathon (87km) in South Africa, considered one of the world’s top ultra-distance races. Going long has been my forte right from the outset as I ran my first ultra within a year of beginning running. I still love competing, however secondary to enjoying every minute on the road or preferably trail.

I have always been self-coached and studied everything I could find about running to develop my own (and others) training schedules. No doubt my race times would have improved had I been accountable to a coach, but in South Africa this was not as common as here in the U.S. Besides for me, designing programs was part of the fun and provided the motivation and inspiration to train.


If you are interested in my coaching service, I am committed to sharing with my athletes all I have learned over three decades of running marathons and beyond. Please contact me for more information.
