He works with Alberto Salazar to coach world junior champion Mary Cain, and coaches Jane Vongvorachoti on her road to represent Thailand in the 2016 Olympic Games.

I was in a rut and considering taking a break from marathoning. I decided to give it one more shot and got on one of John’s plans. In the short time working with John, my running has improved tremendously. In less than 5 months, I’ve set big personal bests in every distance from the 5k to the marathon. In my goal race, the Hartford marathon, I PR’d BY 10 MINUTES!

Henwood’s Hounds speed groups meet at 90th and 5th every Tuesday morning at 6:15 am, at the Riverbank track on Saturdays, and again in Central Park on Friday mornings at 6:15 am
