Howie EnduraNce Project

The Science and Soul of Endurance

Coaching

MY PHILOSOPHY

I believe in individual improvement and competing against one’s self. This may mean you will become a champion, or it may mean that you simply finish a race. My purpose is to help you as an athlete to be better today than you were yesterday. I believe there is no greater thrill in athletics than knowing you have surpassed your own limits.

MY RESPONSIBILITIES

More than anything I want to meticulously design each training program to fit each athlete’s goals and life style. I am not a one-size fits all coach.  I am also the only coach.  If you join HEP you work directly with me.  It is my job to show you the way to improvement. I will use all of my knowledge and resources to get you to the finish line faster.

To be the best you have to outwork the best. ~ terry steiner,Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear. ~ George Adair,Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. ~ Pablo picasso

Bio

Craig grew up in Wyoming where he competed as a wrestler. In 1995 after a devastating knee injury, he was introduced to the amazing world of endurance athletics, and by 1996 had run his first marathon. In 1998 while earning his secondary teaching degree, he began coaching endurance athletes in many different areas including triathlon, duathlon, running, cycling, cyclocross, and swimming. In 2001 Craig moved to Longmont and began working closely with the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. He became “a fly on the wall” and soaked up all of the knowledge of endurance sports coaching he could. These opportunities opened his eyes to amazing training methods and motivated him to become a professional Endurance coach. In 2004, Craig left the teaching world and began the Howie Endurance Project with his Wife Jennifer. Craig and Jennifer met while in college at the University of Northern Colorado, were married in 2001 and have two young boys. Managing family, work and training has given Craig great insight into how to balance sports with the rest of life. In 2009, Craig qualified for his professional license in triathlon and raced for two years as a pro triathlete. Due to injuries sustained during a bike accident Craig was forced to stop his pro career and made the transition into Ultra Running.

Athletic Highlights:
NEVER TRY TO BE BETTER THAN SOMEBODY ELSE. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, NEVER CEASE TRYING TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE.
