Hello, my name is Steven Draper, thank you so much for visiting my website; I’m glad you’re here!
I never had the desire, nor the motivation to run until after moving to Boston in 2009. Seeing the Boston Marathon take place every year on Patriots' Day inspired me to start thinking about running, but in poor physical shape, with many health problems, I doubted my ability to run any time soon.
It started in 2015, when the desire to run consumed me. I asked myself, “what do I have to lose by giving running a try?” My first run lasted for around 10 seconds (true story), before I had to stop to catch my breath. After months and years of consistent hard work and educating myself on how to safely build up my running volume and run more efficiently, I found myself able to run for several hours without stopping.
There’s nothing that I love more than helping others. I use my running ability, experience, and knowledge to raise money for charity, awareness for important social justice issues, and helping other athletes achieve their goals. If you’re looking for a warm, passionate certified running coach that will take the time to get to know you as an individual person (and your individual needs) and will be fully invested in helping you achieve your goals, then look no further.
