Todd Perry Head Coach

Hi, I’m Coach Todd. This will be my third year as a coach with We ROCK. I grew up in Costa Mesa and was a runner in High School. Later I became a competitive mountain biker and cyclist. I have also done some fitness coaching, helping people meet their fitness goals. Fitness has always been a passion of mine, even in those times in my life when I let my own fitness slip. Having a goal is always a great way to get motivated, We ROCK provides that goal.

What’s my history with We ROCK?

My son JT joined We ROCK for the first-time last year as a 6th grader at Ladera Middle School. He completed the full marathon and the look of accomplishment on his face was priceless. It was inspiring to see how the kids progressed and the sense of accomplishment they had when they reached their goal. I participated in many of the training runs and some of the races. It was good motivation for me to get back into running.

It is always fun to hear a coaches race history

Even though I was a runner “back in the day”, I never competed in any race over a 10K. Last year, while training as a coach with We ROCK, I completed my first full marathon, virtually with the OC Marathon. Doing the full marathon on our own was a challenge, but with the support of our family we finished! It felt good to complete our goal despite the challenges of the COVID shut down.

My Favorite Race that We ROCK ran during the season     

My favorite race last year was the Citrus Heritage Half Marathon. I really love the course and set a new PR!
