FTC Coaches Eddie and Enoch!
The Florida Track Club is excited to announce that it has entered into a partnership with the University of Florida’s Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (OSMI) to provide personalized coaching. For the inaugural season a “Couch to 5k” and a Half Marathon program will be offered. The programs will both start on August 1st and run through November 5th. This year in conjunction with the training program we will be adding a 5k to the Tom Walker Half Marathon weekend. Participation in the 5k training program includes entry to the Tom Walker 5k (a $25 value).
While the 5k program is primarily structured for beginning runners, the half marathon program will aid runners of all abilities in training for a fall half marathon. The Track club is bringing in two coaches to run the program: Eddie Garcia and Enoch Nadler.
Enoch is a 2009 graduate of the University of Florida and was the UF Cross Country Team Captain. Enoch has coached a variety of age groups from middle school to adults. He qualified for the 2016 Olympic Trials and holds a PR of 1:03:55 in the Half Marathon. Enoch is looking forward to assisting runners reach their goals.
Eddie won the SEC Conference title in the 10,000 Meter with a time of 29:49.92 in 2015. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida Eddie stumbled upon running and found his passion. With a successful collegiate career behind him Eddie has volunteered with Youth Combine, and now hopes to help a variety of runners reach their goals.
