I signed up for the original LetsRun training program when it was offered in the summer of 2001 to prepare for my freshman year of college. Little did I know it would be the first step towards years of coaching that ultimately shaped my running career. Coming out of high school I was 4:20/9:30 guy. Within three years I finished 4th at US Nationals in the 1500m (3:42, equivalent to a sub-4 minute mile), won the Ivy League Championships and the NCAA Northeast Regional, and earned All-American honors at NCAA's in XC. Kellogg's training gave me the confidence on the starting line that I was better prepared than all of my competitors. He can do the same for you.
The LRC training philosophy empowered me to win the Ivy League 10,000 title, qualify for NCAAs in cross country, and even make the Olympic Marathon Trials while in college. Now I’m living my dream as a professional ultra mountain trail runner.
"JK" is the inspiration for LetsRun.com. When the Internet became mainstream, JK developed a cult following for being one of the loudest and most unapologetic voices in favor of ditching the low mileage/high intensity training that ruined American distance running in the 1990s and replacing it with the higher mileage/aerobically based training from the 1970s. Despite being able to only run 57.5 for a 400, John Kellogg managed to coach himself to a 9:26 2-mile in HS and a 2:32 marathon as an 18-year old. John logged over 70,000 miles during 28 years of running, with a highest week of 156 miles.
"Rojo" is one of the founders of LetsRun.com. He went from being the 4th man on his high school team to running 2:23 in the marathon, despite not running collegiately at Princeton. He once helped pace Catherine Ndereba to the women's marathon WR. During his tenure as the men's distance coach at Cornell, the Big Red won 13 Ivy League team titles in 10 years as he coached 75 All-Ivy performers (28 relay). He was named one of the “The 50 Most Influential People in Running” by Runner's World in 2015.
"Wejo" is one of the founders of LetsRun.com. He went from being the 2nd man on his high school team to 4th in the country as a professional runner making the USA Pan American team at 10,000m and the US Half Marathon Championship team. A 9:35 3200m runner in high school, he managed to run 28:06 for 10,000 as a pro (that's 3x9:00 3200m, plus another lap). In the marathon, his accomplishments include pacing Paula Radcliffe to her first world record in the marathon and winning the Marine Corps Marathon. He'll focus on the mental side of running and teach you why you should never have a bad workout.
