Welcome

Welcome to the coaching home of Erik Nelson!

Erik Nelson Running was founded in June of 2010. With the encouragement of several friends, family members, and co-workers, I was inspired to put together a web site for runners of all ability levels and from all backgrounds.

I love running and working with runners. I have been coaching runners for 7 years, but I have been a student of running for much longer. Over the years I have had the opportunity to run with, observe, talk to, and learn from some truly phenomenal runners and coaches. I have talked running with Olympians, picked the brains of running authors, read every running book and magazine I can get my hands on, and learned from some of the best coaches at every level of running.

It is my belief that nearly everyone can become a runner, and all runners can improve with the right advice and assistance. If you are interested in starting to run or in taking your running to the next level, there is information on this site for you.

Feel free to check out the articles, read the blogs, participate in the forums, and contribute your feedback and opinions. I hope you have as much fun looking over this site as I had making it!
