Welcome Coach Noah MoorePosted on November 8th, 2011 No comments
I am pleased to announce that Noah Moore will be joining me in offering training for the mile to the marathon.
I have had the pleasure of coaching Noah for the past three years, beginning by offering a few words of advice and encouragement as he approached his first marathon.
Unlike many runners, he has never defined himself as a runner. Instead, he defines himself as husband first, father second, and everything else comes after those two things. He has set a great example as both his son and his wife have become runners as well.
Noah decided to get into coaching because of his desire to work with others as a way to share his love of running. He also wanted to help his son who is part of the Mount Pleasant Track Club. In coming months, we will introduce you to some running activities and programs you can do with your children as well.
Noah has personal experience with having a life style in which he was sedentary to one where he finds adventures everyday. In 2007, Noah weighed 268 pounds. With a change in his eating habits and a move to an active life style he lost over 100 pounds and as maintained that weight loss for over four years. During those years he improved his time at the Cooper River Bridge 10k from one hour and seventeen minutes to forty eight minutes and 2 seconds.
He is certified by the Road Runner’s Club of America and will soon be a Level 1 Certified Coach with USA Track and Field. Noah has completed six marathons and two Ultras (he placed second overall in his first 50K this summer).
