In college, he competed for Oneonta State in cross-country. Coach Church started road racing as a 12-year old and has competed at distances from 1 mile to the marathon.  After college, he ran for Taconic Road Runners and Super Runners Shop in New York, qualifying twice for the Corporate Challenge World Championships.

Coach Church applies coaching theories derived from Jack Daniels, the Hanson brothers, Arthur Lydiard, Steve Magness, and Joe Friel. He also uses his own experiences gained over a 40-year competitive career. His extensive background allows him to individualize training plans and to alter workouts quickly. Coach Church is also trained in gait analysis, mobility and stability assessment, injury recovery, and injury prevention. As a husband and an owner of two cats with two careers, he understands the need to balance running with the rest of life’s responsibilities.
