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!

Friendship

Friendship

Friendship, at it's highest level, is seldom convenient. There is almost never enough people around when it is time to be put on display. Being a friend doesn't mesh nicely with my calendar. I rarely feel celebrated or appreciated enough for exhibiting the qualities...

Lost

Lost

When does being lost officially become a thing? At what point can one say that they are definitively "lost"? There is no one in the world that has not had the feeling of being lost, on some level, whether it be on an emotional or geographic basis. Friday night, Gary,...

Sunset

Sunset

There is nothing that symbolizes accomplishment quite like that of a setting sun. Scientists estimate that the probability of an individual being born is 400trillion-to-one. I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but those odds don't sound real good. Yet, here we are....

Decisiveness

Decisiveness

I didn't sleep well last night. This is unusual for me. Most evenings it's lights-out, CPAP, press button, good thoughts, and then it's morning. Last night was much different. I have some uncertainty regarding my future, which makes me different from every other human...

Let it Go

Let it Go

Me: "What is the blog topic?" Amanda: "Letting go." I wonder why she chose that topic? Is she saying I don't let things go? Was that a jab? Maybe, she needs to let things go. I let things go. Nobody tells me what to hold onto, and what to let go. Nobody tells me what...

Routine

Routine

"Step one of becoming a millionaire is to make a million dollars." --Steve Martin Seems pretty obvious, doesn't it? I feel as if a lot of the keys to success are packaged pretty neatly. So neatly, in fact, that it makes it difficult for me to understand why I cannot...

Candlelight

Candlelight

I am afraid of the dark. I don't need much light, a candlelight will do. Ever since I can remember, I have always been a little spooked when the lights go out. As a child, I always had a nightlight, or something to illuminate, at least, some part of my room.  Even...

Time is Up

Time is Up

I have twenty minutes each morning to write a blog post. Amanda gives me a topic, I set a timer for twenty minutes, after which I have an additional ten minutes to clean it up, and get it posted. I don't have the option of changing topics or adding additional time....

Healthy

Healthy

What does it mean to be healthy? I'm probably not the guy to be throwing around definitions of health, but I have a pretty good idea of what being healthy looks like in my world. There is a vast difference between being "fit" and being "healthy". I believe that being...
