The coaching staff at HOKA ONE ONE's NJNYTC spoke with us on a series of coaching challenges for young coaches. Frank Gagliano, John Trautmann and Tom Nohilly gave us their time and insights in 34 videos. We are reposting all of them as new coaches had asked about them, but wanted them in an easy to archive form. We will post the videos five at a time. These videos are focused on cross country and distance video.

The long run builds up your strength and endurance. Long runs are a key component to weekly training. Enjoy the run. You have survived the first week! Nice job!

The success of Noah Lyles, Shaunae Miller Uibo, Ajee' Wilson, among others has had me thinking. This summer, Sydney McLaughlin, Micheal Normanr and Rai Benjamin also ask us to consider the Next Generation of pros. I thought this piece on Mary Cain is a good one to contemplate.

I was reading a fine piece by our friend at LetsRun.com, Robert Johnson. Robert was writing about a podcast edited and produced by Kyle Merber and Alexi Papas titled Bookclubtracklub.com. I love the idea ( and love that they are discussing Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince). Antoine de Saint-Exupery was a quite colorful character, flying mail flights prior to the opening of WW2. Antoine de Saint-Exupery, fighting for the Free French forces, disappeared over the Meditteranean sea in July 1944, and was presumed to have died.The Little Prince has been published in 300 plus languages. It is more than a children's book, reminding me of C.S. Lewis' seven book set, The Chronicles of Narnia.

Before I write on Mary Cain, one more suggestion to Kyle and Alexi. They might like Stories of God, by Ranier Marie Rilke, seven stories for children to understand the meaning of God. Written in 1899, over seven nights, Rilke was most profound and, when, as a junior in high school, I read this book, I began my life long fascination with Rilke.

So, back from that digression.

Mary Cain is a fine athlete. In 2014, Mary went professional (after her appearance at the 2013 World Championships). Mary Cain was a fun young teenager, and she had serious running skills. Alberto Salazar, the co-founder and coach of the Nike Oregon Distance Project, was quite impressed by the young athlete and began to advise her.

Mary Cain became one of those athletes who choose to go professional as a high schooler, a very small percentage of athletes who go from the 1.4 million high school boys and girls in track & cross country, skip the 130,000 young men and women in college track and cross country (including community college), and go professional, among the estimated several thousand athletes making from a few thousand to several million for their athletic prowess.

TOM1-1.pngTom Nohilly is one third of the dynamic trio that mentors, coaches, and encourages the athletes of HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC. With Frank Gagliano as Head Coach, and John Trautmann, Tom Nohilly uses his life experiences as an athlete, and coach to advise a group of enthusiastic American athletes who want to see just how good they really are.

In this, question 29, we poise the question to Mr. Nohilly: what do you love about coaching?

FRANK1-1.pngFrank Gagliano has been one of our most important coaches and educators for over five decades. Gags is not one to mince words. He loves his athletes and they know when they do well and do not do well. That is part of the educational process. Gags dream is to give young American distance runners the best chance to challenge their limits.

The Shoe Addicts and RunBlogRun met with the HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC Coaching Staff at the Martinez Classic in June 2017. Questions were asked and answers were provided, and we hope that you enjoy this answers and use them. We have broken the questions into 34 different videos.

This is Coach Gags speaking on the need for coaches to be at workouts.

TOM1-1.pngTom Nohilly is one of the two assistant coaches at HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC. He is a former steeplechaser who made two World Championship teams. Tom, like John Trautmann, was coached by Frank Gagliano in college and as a post collegiate. Now, some years later, Tom and John work with Frank Gagliano, to help a group of young American distance runners challenge their limits in the NJNYTC.

In this video, Tom Nohilly provides us some suggestions on how to speak to young athletes on their first big race. This is the big race season, and it shakes athletes up. Tom Nohilly uses his experiences well as a coach and offers suggestions on how to reach your young athlete rand how to inspire them for the upcoming big races.
