What happens when an American coach and exercise physiologist moves to a rural town in Kenya's Great Rift Valley to coach a group of Kenyan runners?
From training in groups and controlling the pace to running by feel and having a strong mindset, the Kenyan runners have specific habits and training methods that make them successful. Dr. Jason Karp brings his deep experience in world-class coaching to the epicenter of distance running-Iten, Kenya-where he helps develop some of their great talent, applies his decades of knowledge and experience, plus learns about himself as a runner and a coach.
Part storytelling and part training guide, Coaching the Kenyans
is a vivid account of living, training, and learning in this rural, high-altitude town with its agrarian lifestyle and the undisputed best runners in the world.
A competitive runner since sixth grade, Dr. Jason Karp quickly learned how running molds us into better, more deeply conscious people, just as the miles and interval workouts mold us into faster, more enduring runners. This passion Jason found as a kid placed him on a path that he still follows as an award-winning coach, exercise physiologist, author, and educator. In 2021, he became the first American distance running coach to live and coach in Kenya. His REVO₂LUTION RUNNING coaching certification, which has been obtained by coaches and fitness professionals in 26 countries, was acquired by International Sports Sciences AssociationAuthor:
