This year I hired a new coach, Mark Orton of Speed Works Coaching. I worked with him for 5 months before we even met. The East Coast Talent ID Camp, which was two weeks before nationals, was our first face-to-face meeting. He was the head coach and did a great job of challenging each of us according to our own abilities. I especially want to thank him for listening to my feedback in training and altering workouts so I was as efficient as possible. I liked how my training never felt too easy or unachievable. Rest days were also scheduled so my body never felt weary and had time to recharge. He was always available when I had a question about my training and I appreciated his understanding when I felt like my body wasn't responding. Thanks for a successful year of training, Coach Mark!
