Coach Mark instills the power of "BELIEF" into his athletes, so that when they are truly tested they will believe in their ability to accomplish the goals they set.
"I did well in the 2016 LA Marathon, no injuries, no cramps, no fatigue, and no pain. I finished at 3:34:00 which is a huge PR (30 minutes) for me thanks to Mark, and now I'm looking forward to qualifying for Boston." - Cesar Hernandez
If you had asked me two years ago if I was ever going to run 3+ miles or become a runner, I would have told you that you were crazy! But after meeting Coach Mark everything changed. Coach Mark helped me believe in myself, and showed me that I am capable of much more! With less than two years of training under Coach Mark, I completed three Marathons, going from a 3:55 marathon to a 3:13! I was also able to reach my sub 5 minute mile! I can't wait to see what another 2 years with Coach Mark will do to me. Thank you for always pushing me to my limits!! - Zalmi Orimland
