John Russell Assistant Coach

Hi, I’m Coach John and this is my first year as a coach with WeRock. I have truly never trained for a marathon like WeRock does, so this will be my first time working hard to achieve this personal goal. I’m excited to do my second full marathon alongside the kids as a coach in 2023.

My History with WeRock

My daughter joined WeRock last year and my son will join this year. Watching my daughter transform from a device addicted kid to an athlete competing in a marathon made me want to be a coach and watch more kids proudly cross that finish line.

Races I’ve Done in the Past

Running and doing triathlons are my thing! I’ve completed several half Ironman triathlons, a full Ironman, a Tough Mudder, a full marathon, 2 half marathons, and countless 5Ks and 10Ks.

My Thoughts on WeRock

This program teaches kids important skills of goal setting, planning, perseverance, and hard work that that they can take and apply to all areas of life. It is so inspirational, what this program helps kids achieve, that I can’t pass up the opportunity to be involved in it.
