Rob coached me in track at Saddleback College. He was one of the first coaches I had who really understood the mechanics of running and how to tailor workouts to the individual. With his guidance I was able to improve my times in both the 800 and 1500 meters and set the school’s 1500 meter record which still stands 20 years later. Rob also took the time to give advice as far as approaching potential colleges for scholarships. I ended up not needing to approach any as I was offered a full-ride scholarship at a Division I school before the semester ended. Rob kept in touch over the years and when I was finished with my eligibility offered to coach me once again with 5k races over the next year. Coaching and running are truly his passions.
