Get coached by the best. John Kellogg and Robert Johnson will help take you to the next level. We'll use the same principles that helped take Cornell to an unprecedented level of success at the Ivy League level (13 titles in 10 years) when we coached there and also the same ones that took LetsRun.com co-founder Weldon Johnson to 28:06 for 10,000 meters (that's three straight 9:00 2 miles) and a 4th place showing at USAs. These same principles also helped Robert and Weldon pace two marathon world records.
In the past in a single year, we've taken people from 1:53 to 1:48 in the 800, from 4:13 to 4:04 in the mile, and from 15:12 to 14:04 in the 5000. We can't guarantee that type of improvement but do guarantee you'll be 100% satisfied with our coaching as we know distance running inside and out.
Robert "Rojo" Johnson is one of the founders of LetsRun.com. He went from being the 4th man on his high school team to running 2:23 in the marathon, despite not running collegiately at Princeton. He once helped pace Catherine Ndereba to the women's marathon WR. During his tenure as the men's distance coach at Cornell, the Big Red won 13 Ivy League team titles in 10 years as he coached 75 All-Ivy performers (28 relay). He was named one of the “The 50 Most Influential People in Running” by Runner's World in 2015.
John "JK" Kellogg is the inspiration for LetsRun.com. When the Internet became mainstream, JK developed a cult following for being one of the loudest and most unapologetic voices in favor of ditching the low mileage/high-intensity training that ruined American distance running in the 1990s and replacing it with the higher mileage/aerobically based training from the 1970s. Despite being able to only run 57.5 for a 400, John Kellogg managed to coach himself to a 9:26 2-mile in HS and a 2:32 marathon as an 18-year old. John logged over 70,000 miles during 28 years of running, with a highest week of 156 miles.
