Ron Byland has pretty much been running his entire life- his Mom even claims he was born with a pair of running spikes on. Since those early days he's been fortunate enough to run and compete at about every level and distances, having attempted to qualify for the 1988 Olympic Trials in the 5000 (14:11 PR).
He's been coaching since the mid 80’s and has had the pleasure to coach every level and ability of runner. From helping 5 runners make it into the Olympic Marathon Trials to the largest fund raising charity marathon program in the world to every ability in-between. His coaching philosophy stems from my past competitive life, his USA Track and Field Coaching Certification and applying them to real life situations and hopefully holding true to his motto: "Are we having fun yet?"
