Steve is a certified RRCA running coach & REBT certified mindset coach. He enjoys working with others to help them achieve goals beyond what they thought were possible. Steve completes, explores, and trains with the drive to learn more about what he can push his body to do. As an overweight, out-of-shape child and teenager with low self-esteem, he started running over twenty years ago and has used it to not only get in shape, but to develop pride in everything his body (and mind) can accomplish. He has completed races ranging in distances from 5k to marathons and Ultramarathons. Running is a lifelong passion for Steve, and he enjoys helping others develop a rewarding relationship with the sport.
Just RUN – Make it fun & integrate it into your life. Consistency is key.
Mostly “slow” – Slow is relative, but many people don’t appreciate the importance of easy runs. Speed and strength do have their place, but only when targeted for a specific outcome.
Not Too Much – Don’t overtrain or burn out. Enjoy the process as much, if not more, than reaching the goal.
Know Your WHY – Everyone has a reason to run. For some it’s about physical health, some struggle with mental Illnesses/emotional trauma. For others, they want to check “that race” off a bucket list. Whatever it is, know it, own it, and remind yourself of it while training.
Personal Thoughts or Info
Running changes our concept of self; who we are, what we are capable of, and who we can grow into. You can train your physical body, but if you don’t believe in yourself, if there’s an unhelpful story you are replaying in your head, then you won’t get far. Everyone has a reason to run. For some it’s about physical health, some struggle with mental Illnesses/emotional trauma. For others, they want to check “that race” off a bucket list. Whatever it is, know it, own it, and remind yourself of it while training. Believe YOU actually are capable of great things. Because you are…We all are.
