Jeremy ran his first 10K road race in Calgary on Mother’s Day in 1989. That race, 24 years ago, was the spark which ignited Jeremy’s passion for running. Since then, running has provided him with the opportunity to travel the world, competing for Canada in 10 World Championships (in Track & Field,Cross-country and Half Marathon), as well as proudly wearing the Maple Leaf over 20 times in other International running events. As co-founder and current managing partner in Strides Running Store, Jeremy, a native Calgarian, left his career in the pharmaceutical/medical device industry to help grow the Strides running community and share his love for the sport with others. Jeremy has coached the Personal Best Clinic a number of times over the past 7 years, each time bringing training concepts learned at the highest level of the sport and passing them on to runners looking to reach their individual goals. Jeremy holds a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) degree from the University of Calgary. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife, Jeanette, two children and their new puppy.
