    Great to hear an in depth interview talking specifically about working with athletes.

    It’s sad that there aren’t coach directory available to veteran athletes.  As a veteran athlete who hasn’t run since school I have won all my races this year in my league without any training.  Unfortunately, there are no coaches available to me to advance me.
