“I am 35 years old and was new to running. I would ‘run around the block’ once or twice a week at a 10:00+/mile pace. I began working with Korey and he inspired and encouraged me to set a goal.  The goal I picked was the 2016 Capital City Half Marathon in Olympia, WA. Korey gathered data from me and developed a detailed training plan, specific to me, to prepare me for the race. Throughout training, February-May, Korey stayed in constant communication; monitoring my workouts and requesting feedback on how my body was responding.  He always encouraged me and listened to the feedback I gave him. Korey’s vast personal experience and knowledge was instrumental in helping me when I encountered aches, pains or needed exercises to enhance my legs and core. Fast forward to race day: I finished my half in a time of 1:33:59! It was an amazing feeling and accomplishment.  I could never have done it without Korey’s support, encouragement and coaching.  I have already requested Korey to coach me for the 2017 Capital City Half Marathon, I know with his help, guidance and coaching I can beat my time from last year!  I cannot say enough about the type of coach and person Korey is, he is a genuine person who wants to see others succeed and improve their lives.  Thank you, Korey!”

“I met Korey in 2012. At the time, I was still trying to find my identity as a runner. I had one ultra under my belt, but was primarily focused on running marathons. Korey was highly motivated in everything running. He told me that I could get sponsored and that I could win races. That I could set goals and reach them if I put in the work. That was when I found my identity. I began focusing on Ultra Running and wouldn’t you know, I won my first race soon after. I have since picked up sponsors, nailed race goals and continue to feed off of Korey’s unbridled hunger to be the very best that you possibly can!  Thank you, Korey!”
