Justin Horneker – Online Running Coach

As a USA Track & Field Distance coach and having coached many runners over the past 5 years, I can speak about my training philosophy until I’m blue in the face… but the most important thing I can tell you is that every runner I have coached has run a personal best under my guidance.


Because my “system” ultimately boils down to a few key principles:

Accountability to your training
Working with your schedule instead of against it, and
A focus on building strength and preventing injuries

We achieve our goals by training within ourselves and training consistently over time. After all, “Good things come slow – especially in distance running.”

What my clients are saying:

Brian S.

I love Coach Justin’s training, I keep seeing times in my workouts that I never thought I would see. My latest marathon was a lot of hard work but I felt prepared and PR’d by over 30 minutes.
5K – 24:03 -> 21:07
Marathon – 4:12:45 -> 3:37:13

Conor K.

Justin took a chance on me and helped coach me through my senior year of high school, we both learned a lot but I qualified for state thanks to his coaching.
800m – 2:04 -> 1:59
Mile – 4:55 -> 4:32

Danielle S.

I love how individualized the training plan is for my specific goals and needs. I love that when I’m struggling you’re there to turn to for problem solving, and i love that when I just had a personal best race or blew a goal out of the water that you’re there to celebrate with. And it’s amazing to have a running coach that I can specifically talk to about my struggles with anxiety and how it impacts my running. I feel like a lot of coaches would sweep that under the rug and ignore it.
10K – 63:20 -> 55:41
Half – 2:09:20 -> 2:07:07
