Meet Your Coach
Coach Paul will be training athletes for the inaugural 29029 TRAIL event at Lake Tahoe. Paul’s passion is helping people find success outside of their comfort zone. Paul has completed more than 100 road or trail marathons, and set his personal best time at age 54. He’s trained over 130 people to take on the grueling rim-to-rim experience in the Grand Canyon (90% of which had never attempted anything as physically challenging before). In addition to running, Paul loves to volunteer and support others. He has volunteered at the Leadville Trail 100 multiple times as well as at 29029. Paul retired in 2021 and now spends his time traveling, training, and coaching others to help them expose more of the amazing potential that lives inside all of us.
Coach Paul is currently ranked 14th in the US in the 55-59 age range
Coach Paul won his age group at the Leadville Trail 100 in 2019 one year after a DNF – missed goals are great teachers!
Coach Paul will be at Whistler and TRAIL Tahoe in 2024

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this coaching differ from the 20 week training guide that is included with the registration fee that I already paid for?
The 20 week training plan that all 29029 participants receive is a trusted and proven way to get ready to conquer the mountain that starts about 5 months out from each event. 1-on-1 coaching is for athletes looking for longer-term training plans and individualized plans that account for their specific situation.
Will my coach prescribe a plan that accounts for my limitations, lifestyle, and preferences?
Absolutely. Your coach will create an individualized plan just for you that synthesizes any limitations you have, schedule availability, and any other goals and preferences you have.
When does coaching start?
Your coach will reach out to you shortly after you register to set up your kickoff call with them and get you moving!
How will my coach and I communicate?
You’ll be able to text and email your coach whenever, as well as monthly 1-on-1 live calls. You’ll also be set up with a premium TrainingPeaks account for tracking your progress.
How does the nutrition training work?
29029 nutrition coach Emilee Wise will lead 1-1 clients through 6 "Eat for Endurance" presentations and 6 1-hour office hour sessions where you can ask any questions you may have about nutrition while you're in the thick of training.
Can my monthly subscription continue after the event?
Yes, they can! We hope that working with your coach benefits your life beyond 29029 and you can continue your monthly subscription as long as you'd like.
What’s the cancellation policy?
Simply email us at at least 10 days prior to your next renewal to cancel. There are no prorated months. After your event(s), your coach and you will have a debrief call to discuss your experience and recovery program.
Is there a minimum monthly commitment?
No, there is no minimum commitment.
