Coach Henner


Over the course of my coaching career, I have won at every level; from middle school boys and girls, to high school state championships, to an NCAA Women's Cross Country title, to success at the Olympic Games. However, what I am most proud of is not the championship titles or amount of sub-4 minute milers I have produced, but the fact that I have placed the development of each athlete as a person first. My athletes thoroughly enjoy the sport and they have seen how running can help them grow in to better people. I experience the same happiness when a middle-school beginner completes a mile non-stop for the first time as when one of my athletes qualifies for the Olympic team. The process of improving mentally and physically on a daily basis is centerfold to my success as a coach, and the well-being of my athletes.

Whether you are training  to run your first non-stop mile, summit Mt Everest, or hit an Olympic qualifying standard, it's all about becoming a better athlete. Over the course of my 30 years of coaching, from middle-school boys and girls, to over ten  sub-4:00 milers, and Olympians, a hallmark of my coaching philosophy has been all-around athletic development.  A better athlete is stronger, more agile, more flexible, more explosive, more durable and more mentally prepared. These attributes equate with the ability to withstand more event specific training required for higher levels of performance. My training plans are holistic and comprehensive, and focus on establishing a tremendous athletic foundation. This foundation results in healthy athletes who reach the summit and set new personal records!  


Every problem can have multiple solutions. To see them you have to look at the big picture. Don’t limit yourself to just one route.
