I had been a self-coached runner for the last 20 years. After running PRs in practically all distances from the 5k up through the marathon about 4-5 years ago, my racing had plateaued and had even begun to regress. At 40 years old, I knew it was now or never. In May of 2018, I started researching online coaches and came across a RunnersWorld article that mentioned Caleb and Team WB. I hired Caleb as my coach in July 2018 with a goal of running a new marathon PR this fall. In the 18 weeks leading up to my race, I followed his training and set new PRs in the 10M and half marathon along the way. On race day, I ran 2:54 beating my 5-year old previous best by 3 minutes. Caleb is everything you want in a coach. He responds timely to emails, he takes into consideration all aspects of your racing/training history when designing your program and he adjusts things when necessary. He understands that we have commitments and responsibilities outside of running. But most importantly in my case, he was able to convince me (a stubborn, life-long runner) to revamp my training. And it made all the difference.
