I met Andy over a discussion about hydration packs. At that time I was overweight and had no motivation to do much of anything. He gave me pointers and I ran my first 5k within two months of meeting him. Two months after that a 10k, three months after a half marathon. Just when I thought it was impossible, a full marathon a few months later. Over the course of 2 years we’ve built a relationship and my attitude on life has changed dramatically. Not only did he help better my physical health he changed my outlook on life. He is skilled, thoughtful, sensible, and will give you a quick kick when needed – that reality check we all need. He knows when to encourage, when to push, and when to just listen. He individualized a run program to fit my hectic life and schedule. He checked in constantly to ensure I was on the right path. Thank to Andy’s enthusiastic commitment I have a new foundation for a healthier, active lifestyle.
