“Frank coached me for my first marathon in New York when I ran for Team for Kids. He removes as many of the unknowns as is possible from this experience as he takes you through it almost step by step. His passion, knowledge and insight help you feel confident and in control as you embark on this big adventure. I cannot imagine anyone who knows more or cares more to help anyone run a marathon.”
