MF Coaching

Tell me about you

(Click on the link above for coaching inquiries)

Hiring a coach requires some forethought and research, so should you find yourself on the fence or wondering about some of the details associated with establishing this kind of relationship with someone, don't hesitate to ask questions. Ultimately, you chose who to invest in to guide you toward achieving your goals, and that is a very personal decision.

If you find yourself looking for someone to keep you accountable and guide you toward accomplishing your personal objectives, to teach you strategies to move forward in your fitness and health, or to guide you through a period of time that ultimately builds to a goal event, ask me what I can do for you. Ten years in triathlon has allowed me to learn some valuable lessons, both good and bad, in the sports of swim, bike, and run. My DPT in Physical Therapy also provides me the credentials to adequately and professionally assess you to better address your strength, fitness, nutrition, and health goals.

What I charge depends on what you can afford and for what services you want to pay. Again, I believe the coach/athlete relationship is a very personal one. In the end, I hope not to deter those of you with a specific and/or limited budget, but instead, I want to mentor and encourage more people to invest in their health, fitness, and athletic objectives. MF coaching stands for mastering fitness (or, #mfer, depending how you're feeling.) This means I look forward to instilling within others the desire to choose to excel at whatever ambitious journey one has set out to accomplish. Consider joining Team MF and the other #mfers who enjoy this sport so much!

Let's set out on a new road of exploration, be it on bike or foot. Then, we'll divulge healthfully.

How strong are your feet?

Who knew my first post in 2020 would be about the work I'm doing on my feet. Not just any work, but the work required to make them strong enough to propel me to faster running paces, the work to make them durable enough to heal up some old injuries and prevent new ones from taking hold. Jay Dicharry , a Physical Therapist and researcher in Bend, OR, says that almost all ankle, foot, and lower leg injuries can be attributed to faulty foot mechanics and a weak foot core.  I listened to him speak on a podcast called Trail Runner Nation today, and all the advice he provided me during my two personal visits with him last year rushed back in a torrent of memory. It seems fitting that his reminders would hit me like a hammer over my head when I consider the nagging foot pain that has cropped up again over the past couple of weeks. I'm going back to my toe yoga, short foot exercises, and working hard to build up the strength in my foot intrinsic muscles. Meanwhile, here's a b

My opinion...For what it's worth

My first Half Ironman 70.3 turned into Boise 29.3. I may be the only one to say that I respect the officials' judgment call on this one, because apparently, a few of my triathlete comrades lack sufficient brains themselves. The comments I'm reading on Facebook leave me pretty disturbed. Let me just put this out there: I entered this sport because it looked tough and challenging. It pushes anyone who enters these races to their ultimate limits and requires a demanding amount of time to complete the training necessary to succeed. I entered this sport because of the people. Healthy, smart, fit, inspiring, motivating. I can't think of a single person who has questioned my ability to participate in this sport. I entered this sport because anyone can do it. I passed people younger and older than me, some as old as 74. I watched one woman hobble along the run course, surely just on her first lap. She looked like her knees were going to cave in. Yet she was running. I did not ent

It is finished

As with everything in life, nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable. It does not always mean it's a turn for the worst. In my case, I think this is a change for the better. As of 2021, I am closing the door on racing triathlon and rekindling my investment in the doctorate degree I worked for in Physical therapy. Thankfully, making money again has felt much more productive than losing it in the pursuit of professional triathlon. Thankfully, my body has responded positively to a slackened training schedule. Thankfully, my head is clearer for the release in pressure to perform.  I needed a new pursuit, a new challenge, a new endeavor. Raising and showing my dogs has helped me slow down, challenged me to learn and communicate differently, and taught me that physical fitness can still be achieved to a lesser, healthier extent.  It has worked so well that I'm also going back to doing what I loved to do 10 years ago. Pursuing a more simple lifestyle (outside of work, of course) a
