After discussing the impact of Keira D’Amato and Sara Hall’s record breaking performances at the Houston Marathon, we welcomed one of the top Boston Marathon and triathlon coaches, Tony Rich, to provide tips on the training and execution of the Boston Marathon. Tony is a USAT Level II Certified Coach, Certified IRONMAN Coach, a USA Cycling Level 3 Certified Coach, a USMS Certified Master Swim coach. Additionally he’s completed over 100 long course endurance events over 16 years including numerous open water swims, 70.3 races, over 70 Marathons (PR 3:14:46) of which, 17 are consecutive Boston Marathon Finishes. Born, raised and residing in Boston, Tony specializes in the Boston Marathon course and is a Boston Marathon Qualifier. Tony served as coach of the Boston University collegiate triathlon team. He has also formerly coached the all women’s Team Envision multisport team. Tony is the host of The Endurance Experience Podcast, and together with guests they discuss the science of self-propelled motion and also explore some of the most important topics within the intersection of endurance sports training, health, fitness, society and life current events. Athletics has been a part of Tony’s life from a very young age. As a high school athlete he was a 3 sport stand-out in football, basketball and track-and-field. In track-and-field, Tony raced everything from the 100 to 400 meters, and competed in the long jump and triple jump field events. Tony started participating in endurance sports in 2003, and immediately took to the lifestyle completing over 100 long course events. He holds the Guinness Word Record for the fastest Ironman triathlon indoors. For recreation Tony still participates in endurance events including Master swimming events. He has competed in a diverse array of events including the 200 butterfly, the 400 IM as well as the 1650 freestyle. With an extensive career background as an analyst, data scientist and a certified Scrum Master (a coined term for a person who leads software development teams), Tony has a passion for science and draws inspiration from the scientific method and empiricism in his training and coaching process. Tony formally launched EventHorizon, Endurance Sport, LLC in 2011. He considers himself to be consistently evolving with new and improving methods. Tony calls upon his extended performance team for assistance which is a collective of elite coaches, PhDs, exercise physiologists, dietitians, sports nutritionists, and physicians. His style is to build effective coach and client relationships in a non-aggressive and motivational way. We will not be featuring ads for this season.
