Strange title I know, but I have been thinking a lot over the past few months about how I can get to know you all better and help you with your running (and life) goals.
I do get emails from some of you, and I truly love it, so if you haven’t reached out yet, say hello, you will get a reply!!
Some of you have also subscribed to my blog, and if you are, you are probably reading this from your email inbox right now, and for that, I thank you.
But then that leaves a HUGE chunk of you who are mysterious to me.
I know you are there, as I see my numbers of unique visits going up, but I never get the chance to hear your story, or know what you are looking for.
I am thinking about creating some products for you; videos on various running topics, ebooks (maybe even attempt a real book!), and other ways to give you more insight into life as an elite, and how you can get the most out of your running from what I have learned over the years.
One thing I am proud of when I look back on my years of running is that overall, I am moving in the right direction, and although there will always be ups and downs, I have been consistently getting better year after year.
Just to show you that in more detail, here is my progression:
1 mile 5:01
1 mile 5:00

1500m 4:26 PR
1 mile 4:48 PR
3000m 9:36 PR
5000m 16:08 PR

1/2 marathon 1:14

5k (road) 16:36
10k (Road 34:35
1/2 marathon 1:13

Funny side note, I actually spent about 45 minutes trying to figure out how to graph this information, but I just couldn’t figure out a good way to do it with such a big range of times 😉
Math people, maybe you can make something for me to use in future 😉
Obviously I realized a HUGE chunk of that is that 2008 was when I started to be coached by a coaching genius (;P), but it is also because since then, we have made constant improvements to be better, and these are the things that make all the difference.
I would LOVE to help you to consistently improve too, and I am starting to consider what I can do to help you out.
I have some exciting news I will be sharing with you in the next week, but I am afraid it will be exclusively for my blog subscribers (you will see why once you get the email!)
If you would like to know more about this, please subscribe to my blog by entering your email address in the box named “Subscribe via Email” on the right of this screen (if you are on desktop). if you are on mobile, it will be at the bottom of this screen.
Don’t miss out 🙂 I promise I won’t spam you. All it means is that you get an email with a video from me saying hello, and then you get my new blog posts directly to your email inbox.
So, tell me, what would you like to learn more about from me in the future?
