Adam and Tim found their passion for running while in high school. Tim led his high school to back to back state championships before signing to run for the University of Colorado. Four years later Adam led his team to a state championship and earned an individual national title at the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships. Adam then joined Tim at the University of Colorado where they met and helped CU to a second place finish nationally. Tim went on to teach and coach high school cross country and track, while Adam finished his storied collegiate career and continued to add national championships and an Olympic berth to his professional resumé.

 

As shared in their book, Running the Edge, “Being a runner is truly a gift. Runners have access to a world and a set of life lessons that can transform every aspect of their lives. We want to tap into that runner’s world and harness the transformative power found in the distance run. We want to use running as a teacher, motivator, and compelling force of positive change in our lives.”

This common interest and focus has kept the two connected all these years and will be the emphasis of their keynote presentation.
