TestimonialA Personal Victory

"No matter what your running goals are, if you are wanting to improve your performance, look no further than Eric at Sole Experience. From motivation, nutrition, clothing and training Eric has the answers. Through his weekly emails, Eric took me through the journey of training and each week, as long as I trusted that training, my running got stronger- both mentally and physically. Thank you Eric for all of your guidance and sharing your experiences. I couldn’t have finished Boston without you."

"Thank you Eric for a great clinic with Sole Experience. Your clinics are always encouraging, upbeat, caring and above all...you make them fun! Your ability to cater to the runner who is lacing up their first pair of running shoes all the way to the long distance athlete and every runner in between is what makes the experience unique, enjoyable and being excited to hit both the roads and the trails. Everyone is made to feel that they can accomplish their goals, no matter how small or how great. Thanks you for helping people to realize there isn't anything they cannot do!" ~ Donna White




Questions most runners ask at some point. Having goals to run further and faster can be great, having people around you that care about you and your goals is even better. You may have limited time or simply want to get the most from your hard work so let's get to it! These Programs are a perfect fit:

"Eric is not only a first class coach, he is a first class individual. He lives and breathes running! I hired Eric 9 months ago as a personal run coach originally training fro Boston. It was a tough timeline but he got me through it. I'm now on my way to training for the New York City Marathon, and I'm feeling very confident about my running." ~ Steve Di Tomaso



One day my husband and I were discussing how, when we were younger, we wanted to be sprinters but never got the chance. So we decided why not give it a try now? We heard about Sole Experience Running Company through several friends of ours and decided to contact Eric. He got back to us right away and was enthusiastic about helping us reach our goal. Eric is very supportive, personable and always has a smile on his face. We wanted to learn all the technical aspects of the sport and he does an excellent job breaking down the mechanics of sprinting into easily achievable exercises. It is clear that Eric lives and breathes running! With Eric's encouragement and guidance, I ran my first 100 m race after just a few lessons. Eric's coaching enabled me to put my nervousness aside and run for my own enjoyment. Now, every week my husband and I look forward to hitting the track together and are thankful to have Eric help us make sprinting our Sole Experience!
