I trained under Alejandro in Winter 2015. In just 3 months I was able to break 19 minutes in the 5k for the first time ever (shaving over 30 seconds off my PR). The workouts on the track and and road pushed me to break that barrier. I grew more confident and became an overall stronger and faster runner.

Alejandro was instrumental in helping me qualify for the Boston marathon. His speed workouts really helped my turnover and improved my endurance. He's an excellent runner and clearly knows his stuff. I was able to PR in every racing distance since I began to work with him!
I first met Alejandro right after a horrible track season that left me feeling mentally depleted. I was struggling to run 4 miles constantly felt like I was going to die. Alejandro pushed me, encouraged me and showed me exactly what I needed to do during a 12 week program in the summer. Now, I am able to run 10 miles at a strong pace, and it feels quite easy! He taught me healthy eating habits and improved my nutrition as well as hydration intake. I learned the proper fueling habits that are vital to training and performing on race day.

(Half Marathon Debut)
After taking a couple years off from running I decided that in 2018 I wanted to finally run the half marathon for the first time ever. Always encouraged by Alejandro in years prior, I thought it was only fitting to have him as my coach. I never thought I’d EVER run long distances since I would only run 5ks, but Alejandro had always encouraged me to move up, so I finally took him up on it. Half way through my training I was struggling mentally, mostly with my long runs but Alejandro was always there encouraging me and helping me change my thinking about long runs. Thanks to him and his training I ran such a great debut half marathon and felt the strongest I’ve ever felt during a race. I feel so confident that my shorter distance races will be even better now that I look at longer distances so different, and no longer as something I can’t. I have Alejandro to thank for that! For always encouraging me and getting me out of my own head!! Alejandro is such an awesome coach and really wants the best for his athletes. So grateful to have him as a coach!
