Thank you for visiting RunDreamAchieve.com and welcome. A website I created in November of 2011 to help runners from around the world to meet their fitness, business and running aspirations. Below you will find a video that is a part of the Sub 2.30 Marathon Mastermind course I created. I discuss some of my history, how I got involved in the sport and why I do what I do here at RunDreamAchieve. Hope you enjoy it.

Nathan achieved a life-long dream of breaking the 2.22.00 marathon barrier finishing in 4th place and as the top American with a time of 2.19.35 at the 2007 California International Marathon.

He was one of only 61 men in the United States of America in 2007 that broke the 2:20:00 marathon barrier.

Background

All I ever wanted with this site was to reach runners and people, athletes or not, who desire the most out of life.
This picture is an example of the hard work that I know you are currently doing. I’ve lived the spartan lifestyle and I understand the ups and downs of total novices to Olympic trials qualifying level athletes.

My passion for this site, the products that I create all stem from pain points that I had to endure through and ultimately overcome. I also created the RunDreamAchieve Academy to help runners gain confidence and get results.

I had some of the world’s top distance running coaches as mentors. My collegiate coach, Jack Hazen, was a world-championship and Olympic coach.

World-Class Associations

I was coached from 2007 to 2010 by the 1985 Boston Marathon Champion (Lisa Rainsberger) while serving with the US Army World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) headquartered at Fort Carson, Colorado. I have also been fortunate to have been mentored by two of the world’s most renowned coaches in Dr. Joe Vigil and Jack Hazen, respectfully.

These professionals taught me what it truly takes to compete at the top levels. My goal here at RunDreamAchieve is to provide guidance and consulting services to runners of all abilities and get them their desired results.
