Pete has had the pleasure of leading a running/walking group at his church for 11 years. About 9 years ago some in the group started to become interested in trying their first half-marathon and then some became interested in attempting 26.2 miles! To date, Pete has trained 48 people to run their first half or full distance marathon! Pete has trained a wide diversity of folks and has a 100% success rate with his “first-time” runners finishing their distances. In most of the cases Pete will train and run the race with those he coaches. Pete provides powerful training advice and wisdom, positive mental visualization and powerful ENCOURAGEMENT and MOTIVATION!!….so everyone FINISHES STRONG!!
