Little did Tim know when he placed in the top five at the Soquel High Cross Country Invitational that he would eventually be owner of a running store just down the street. His passion for running spans from the University of Colorado XC team to his travels around the US at 10K’s and marathons. With a 2:53 best, 4 Boston Marathons, and the Ironman Wisconsin – Tim thrives on sharing his knowledge with others. He has coached at Archibishop Mitty, and continues to coach adult runners in all distances across the Bay Area.
