This is my coaching and personal blog. I have been coaching distance runners for most of the past 25 years and have been running since 1976. In 2005 I initiated Northern Lights Online Coaching.
Here are my obligatory personal bests at various distances--all way way old. Interestingly, my age-graded masters times are surprisingly close to most of these (except the marathon, where I'm now relatively slower).
1500 meters - 4:05 (1986);
5k - 15:13 (1985);
10k - 31:48 (1983);
10 mile - 53:39 (1989);
1/2 marathon - 1:10:55* (1982);
Marathon - 2:30* (1983).

I've also been skiing all my life, starting out as recreational alpine skier as a kid, but I shifted to Nordic in my mid 20s. I skied one year for Colorado State University and spent a few years on the Rocky Mountain and Intermountain circuit, including a couple of USSA Nationals.
In my professional life, I work as a natural resources planner for the government. Before that I spent 20 years as a wildlife biologist and graduate student. Those experiences I will describe in the future.
