Coach Mort

Hi there, I’m Coach Mort, an RRCA-certified coach who’s had the joy of guiding hundreds of athletes toward their goals. While coaching is my passion, running is my heartbeat. I’ve completed 26 marathons (PR 3:19, Boston qualifier and finisher), 3 ultras, and 13 half marathons. Ready to embark on your own journey?
