Coach Dave Karls

After being an on and off casual runner since high school and college, I decided to “get serious” after turning 40. It was really just about being more consistent and intentional about running. A challenge from my younger sister got me training, and I ran my first marathon on my 43rd birthday, and I haven’t looked back. Running is now a part of my life. As I have gotten involved running with groups, I’ve enjoyed learning from more experienced runners, and also helping motivate and advise newer runners. Last year I decided to get formal coaching training, and completed the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Coaching Certification Program. I’m looking forward to helping people start running, keep running, and chase their goals!
