MEET OUR NEW RUNNING COACH JEREMY RICHARDSON July 21, 2018 15:53

Running Coach Jeremy Richardson

We're delighted to announce a new coach at St. Pete Running Company! Meet Jeremy Richardson, a physical therapy assistant, a runner, and a triathlete.

“We're excited to have Jeremy on board as our head coach at Run St. Pete, our training club. It was a highly selective process to find someone who could meet our expectations. As a talented up and coming coach and physical therapist, he's been advocating for us for years, and has sent many people to our store for a properly fitted running and walking shoe. He believes in what we are doing. To have a running and triathlon coach who is an elite athlete and a physical therapist is excellent. But to have that skill set and also demonstrate leadership and compassion for the individual is world class. He was a shoe-in for the job.”

~St. Pete Running Company Owner Cody Angell

 

Get to Know Jeremy

Q: Where are you from and what's your background?

Jeremy: I was born in Tennessee but have lived in the Tampa Bay Area since I was three. My love of running came from running in different sports. No matter what sport it was, I always loved the running aspect of the game.

Q: How long have you been involved with the sport?

Jeremy: Triathlon has been a huge passion of mine since I first raced at 16. I have gained many experiences from racing all over the world and training with some incredibly talented athletes. During my time at Florida State University, I was able to train with two National Champions, and some of the best triathletes in the southeast.

Q: Top sporting moment?

Jeremy: My top sporting moment was winning the Gasparilla 8k, hearing all of my friends and family cheering, and having Meb Keflezighi give me my award.

Q: What do you like about helping people?

Jeremy: My passion in life is helping people! I love pushing people to be the best and have fun while doing it. I utilize the latest techniques in training and rehabilitation to keep my athletes healthy by progressively pushing them to new levels of fitness.

Q: Why did you choose to work with St. Pete Running Company?

Jeremy: I chose to work with St. Pete Running Company because I believe in and like what Janna and Cody are doing, which is growing the running community in a fun way.

Q: What are your goals as an athlete?

Jeremy: My goals are to continue to PR, and see where that takes me. I qualified as a professional triathlete, and I'd like to qualify again, and if able, to compete at that level.
