Steve Carmichael - RRCA-USATF Running Coach

USA Track and Field / RRCA certified running coach and fitness coach.

Welcome! Steve here.

In late 2011, I became a running coach and club director for a local running club. In 2014, I made a decision to build an online running community for runners like you and me and the RunBuzz podcast was formed.

I also run and operate Run For Performance, a local sports performance and training company in Central Ohio where I coach all levels of youth and adult athletes.

This site is for runners who have careers, families, and busy lives. We may not be the fastest. We may not run the farthest. Yet we want to improve, stay injury-free and see results from our effort. 

In other words, we want to improve the quality of our lives, enjoy running, feel amazing, and become the best version of ourselves we can. If this sounds like you, you are in the right place.

I offer 1:1 online and local fitness/performance/run coaching and have coached athletes from complete beginners to semi-competitive runners at all race distances. Contact me if you have any questions, or would like to work with me.
