Episode 140: Ben Rosario

Really fun show today with Northern Arizona Elite President and Coach Ben Rosario.

Ben’s experience in the running industry is impressive – before starting NAZ Elite, he was a specialty store owner, a special events director for a big city marathon and an elite athlete himself. He ran for the Hansons-Brooks team for a bit and personally has a marathon PR of 2:18 and mile PR of 4:03.  Ben has coached runners of all ability levels, and at Northern Arizona Elite, he coaches names like Kellyn Taylor, Steph Bruce, Aliphine Tuliamuk and Scott Fauble.

I loved talking with him about starting his group in Flagstaff and how it came to fruition and their successful partnership with Hoka One One. We get to learn about his coaching methods, the team atmosphere they have with the group and his heart for the sport. He is a fun, upbeat and matter of fact guy that we can all learn a little something from, not only in running but in living a life pursing our passions as well.
