About Running DadI Need A Coach!
Asking Jeremy to coach me was one of the best decisions I had ever made. Week after week, he pushed me out of my comfort zone, something I would have never done if I was training by myself. Sara Ilnicki

His detailed training on a weekly bases pushed me to my limits, and over sometimes, to grow. He knew my ultimate goal was to qualify for Boston, and he kept me on track. Alex Lane

I was impressed with Jeremy’s profile and noted that he started from nothing and had worked up to a marathon distance, but was also a family man who would understand my need to keep family first. Amanda Luckey

I didn’t know I was a runner until I was 35 years old. What started as a way to lose a few pounds turned into a complete lifestyle change. I went from downing beers to setting personal running records nearly every time I toe the line for a race. With two active boys, I need to be able to keep up. I want to be a superhero in their eyes. I am a Running Dad. Read about my adventures in the BLOG
