I began my competitive running career my freshman year in high school, running track for four years and cross-country for two.  Here I'm running a Cross Country race in College at Adams State College in Alamosa Colorado.  We were NAIA National Champions in 1986 and I was an All American.


I have been running and coaching for about 30 years. I have always been a student of the sport and found my best success when I coached myself. I also liked training with my friends and realized that I got the most out of my workouts when I trained with a group of them. Over the years, many people have asked me for running advice and I realized how many people are looking for coaching.  

I also noticed that some coaches seemed to get their credibility from the fee they charge. I thought if I could bring runners together I could use my experience and research to coach them as a group and they would have each other to train with at an affordable price. So Chuckit was born.
