Here we are on a daily basis, probably complaining of the weather or how we are getting older or not hitting our times like we want to….but let’s face it – we are alive and, if you are reading this, probably some kind of runner, whether beginner or advanced.

Remember that this is a sport – this is fun.  Those who sacrificed their lives for us in a war probably did not have too much fun while they were defending our country right before they passed.  Those are the heroes….  the inspirations ….

You probably have more about you that is going well than you give yourself credit for – so try to think more on the happy side.  Life is too short for any other way.

Any other attitude is only negative.   And negativity spills over into your running ….. SO DON’T LET IT!

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.
