Scott is a blogger and an Amazon Best-Selling author. Scott was not born a runner. While playing indoor soccer in his forties, he discovered that he had more running endurance than other players his age. While on a trip to Las Vegas he read an article about running a half marathon down the Strip in Las Vegas.

He focused his efforts on training to be able to run down the Vegas Strip in November of that year. Due to conflicts with scheduling, he did not run the half marathon in Las Vegas. Instead, he ran an extremely hilly local half marathon and placed 2nd in his age group.

Scott is a licensed youth U.S. Soccer coach. He enjoys being a father and snowboarding in the winter. He has since completed twenty-five 5ks, one 10k, ten half marathons, and one marathon. After completing his first marathon, he realized that running was now his passion and wanted to help other runners. His primary focus is on training runners from the state of a beginner runner to race finisher. His book, Beginner’s Guide to Half Marathons, has become a #1 Amazon Bestseller.
