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!

Smile

There is no such thing as an unpleasant smile. There are pleasant people who don’t smile very often, and there are unpleasant people who smile sometimes…but there is no such thing as an unpleasant smile. I believe that. I also believe that a smile is the...

Getting By vs Getting Better

Getting By vs Getting Better

I got a little better yesterday. I ran a thirty one mile race through the woods of the Cumberland Plateau, and I got a little better. I can’t really explain why running through the woods made me better, but it did. I finished almost last, but that’s not...

Adulting Is Hard

Adulting Is Hard

I went to the dentist yesterday. The conversation between hygienist and I went like this: Dental Hygienist: How often do you floss? Me: Never. That about wrapped up the topic of flossing. Who came up with all of this stuff? How much daily maintenance can be crammed...

Old Man Noises

Old Man Noises

They are as subtle as a thief in the night. Old man noises. When exactly did they start? At what point exactly does it become mandatory that there be a groaning sound accompanied with every attempt to become vertical? I don’t sit on the ground. With the...

I’ve Never Been Angry & Wrong At The Same Time

I’ve Never Been Angry & Wrong At The Same Time

I got mad at my kids for being hungry. True story. I was angry because they wanted something to eat for breakfast. I was also angry because it was not raining. My weather app said it was going to rain so I made alternative plans for work. Did I mention that I was...

Donuts with Dad

Donuts with Dad

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” —The internet or Albert Einstein (not exactly sure) “Donuts with dads” was yesterday at my...

Hiding Behind The “Lol”

Hiding Behind The “Lol”

“Lol” That is how to end each and every passive-aggressive message. You can put that behind anything and always know that you have a defense for being an a-hole. When placed properly, it can make even the weakest seem assertive and the sociopath sound...

Enjoy Your Mad

Enjoy Your Mad

I am an impossible person to be around for any significant period of time. My closest friends are the ones who can recognize a fit, tantrum, or just plain fizzle and and fart out of reality. I do this…a lot. I go overboard with ideas. I overreact to situations....
