"I have known Dathan since 2010 and he has just recently started coaching me this past year. After only 7 months of coaching me, I have run 2 marathons and 2 new PR’s. My most recent 2017 Tokyo Marathon being an 8min and 32second PR and a 12th place finish. His guidance and positive coaching style has helped me build confidence through workouts which has carried over into competition. Dathan is a perfect example and role model of what it means to take care all of the little things: recovery, stretching, strength and nutrition. When I have setbacks in training, Dathan creates a plan for me immediately so we can work through it in the smartest way not to lose any fitness we’ve built. As fine a coach as Dathan is, he is a family man first which I truly respect about him and his character." ~ Dawn (Dallas, TX)


"In the 8 months Dathan has been coaching me I’ve hit PR’s in the 800m through 5k. His comprehensive approach to training has helped me become a stronger runner and stay injury free!" ~ Samantha (Comstock Park, MI)


"Dathan is such a great guy and has a wealth of knowledge in running, s&c and injuries. He has been an incredible support for me since my Achilles surgery last year, showing me enormous empathy for which I will always be grateful.  Dathan has huge amounts of experience and great judgement and will always share his advice on what he has learnt throughout his incredible running career so far. Thank you Dathan!” ~ Beth (Kent, United Kingdom)
