I retired in 2017 and decided to get fit for an active lifestyle. I had two goals at the start; return to distance running and get in better shape for alpine skiing.
In March of 2018 I set my sights on qualifying for the 2020 Boston Marathon giving me 18 months to train and qualify. Chris helped me set realistic goals to push myself but not over train. Along the way a couple of injuries threatened my training but Chris adapted my workouts and incorporated some video analysis that kept me engaged in constructive training while I healed. That September I completed the Erie Marathon and qualified for the 2019 Boston Marathon, a year ahead of my plan! Chris was a key part of that success.
Each autumn Chris focuses my training so I am ready for the ski slopes as soon as the lifts are running. With my foundation of training, I enjoy skiing at least 50 days a year including racing at Nashoba Valley and an annual trip to Jackson Hole.
Moving ahead I am looking forward to new challenges and will be relying on Chris to help me get ready.
