Our motto is you don't need to be an elite athlete to feel like one. YOU ARE ELITE!

In 2014, I made a decision to build an online running community for runners like you and I. Runners who have careers, families and busy lives. People like you and I who aren't satisfied with trial and error when it comes to our health and fitness.  

A few years prior, I fell in love with coaching and wanted to build a community where I could share what I had learned and introduce new runners to the sport. My goal was to build a platform where you and I could share running tips and support each other's goals. 

Since then, the RunBuzz podcast has grown to nearly a million downloads and has reached runners in over 87 countries. Together, we have organically grown our private community to over 730 members and that number continues to grow. 

My passion for coaching ultimately led me to developing the PaceBuilders™ training program which has helped hundreds of local and online runners smash their running goals. Early on in my coaching career, it became clear to me that PaceBuilders™ had to go beyond simple training plans. So PaceBuilders™ evolved into a comprehensive program that helps runners run faster, farther, and injury free. We go above and beyond generic plans and help you integrate strength training, sound nutrition, a fitness mindset, race preparation and strategy, injury prevention, positive lifestyle habits and more.

And that brings us to 2019, where the mission remains the same. My team and I want to help you achieve things that you never thought were possible with your running. By surrounding you with a team of certified running coaches, strength coaches and other fitness professionals, we want to work with you to take advantage of the tools and coaching we provide so you can run your best and achieve amazing results in the weeks, months, and years to come.
