Von was one of my favorite athletes and I know he’ll be your favorite coach. This guy went from a couch potato to a marathoner/ultra-marathoner in no time. He knows what it takes to get you from wherever you are to where you want to go because he’s been there. He transformed his life, let him show you how to transform yours.

I have always had knee and hip pain while running. That slowed me down pretty significantly. After working with Von I have not had any pain while running and my times have consistently gotten faster!

Prior to working with Von, I never thought of running as a skill. I thought we all knew how to run. I would have pain in my lower back and hip flexors even on short runs. Now, I treat running just like other aspects of training and work to perfect my technique. My runs are pain free and my times are getting better. I could ask for more than that!

Thank You!

I am sitting in my hotel room in Downtown Memphis the night before the St. Jude Marathon.  When I signed up as a “Gold” Hero to raise $2500.00 I had no idea that this is what they meant when they told me I would get 2 nights at a Downtown Hotel.  Look at...

What Everybody Ought To Know About CrossFit

I have been reflecting a lot lately on the things that I have accomplished in the last few years.  I think it is important for us to look back at all of the things that we have done well and think about why they worked and how we can apply those lessons to the things...

LHRL T-Shirt to Support the Kids of St. Jude!

I signed up to run the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis on December 6th.  I have ran this race a couple of times in the past, but this year I decided to up the game a little bit and do something good for this excellent cause.  I initially signed up as a hero and committed...

First Full Week of Training!

It has been said that the fastest way to lose your fitness is to open a gym.  I agree, and I would also amend that to say “the fastest way to lose your fitness is to open a gym AND try to do your own programming.”  I’ve learned over the last year...
