Exciting News!!

Aloha everyone,

it has been quite an eventful first half of 2015!

On the running side of life, I just missed the time cut at 92.5 miles into the HURT 100 despite the amazing efforts of my first-class crew. It was a long/hard 33:31:41 but I know I am a better runner and person having gone thru that experience. I have bounced back and hit a 2016 Western States 100 lottery qualifier with my finish at the Quicksilver 100k in May. Friends Jeff Snyder and Joe Pope made the trip out to Quicksilver as well and also picked up lottery qualifying times for WS100 2016. Big thanks to Blaine Sullivan and Zeke Neeley for crewing and pacing!

As far as future races coming up, I am planing on staying on island for most of the rest of 2015 by racing the local HURT Tantalus Triple Trek 30 miler in August and the Peacock 100k in October. Of course, I am dreaming and hoping for a chance at redemption at the 2016 HURT 100. The lottery is next month–fingers crossed.

But onto the big news……

As few months ago, I quit my job with the dream of starting my own coaching and running tour company here on Oahu….

That dream has come true. My lovely wife and I have started the Hawaii Running Lab and our website launched yesterday. We are specializing in personalized and customized coaching for runners of all ability levels in order to help each individual achieve their running goals. We have many amazing training groups here on Oahu but not a lot of high-level personal coaches. With my background, I think I am the right individual to fill that void and help runners on our island. We will also offer coaching services to clients at all locations around this wonderful globe of ours. Please check us out. If you are looking for a coach to help get you to the next level or just want to add some structure and guidance to your training, I would love to be your coach! Also, feel free to pass our information along to any friends that may need some help with their running. We have a facebook page as well as an instagram account @hawaiirunninglab and twitter @hawaiirunlab. Please give us a like/follow.

Our logo and artwork were designed by Jeff Harter and his team. We have ordered our first round of HRL shirts and singlets and they should be available on the site by July 13. Photo credit for the shot of me running above Kahana Bay goes to the amazing Ryan Moss!
