A competitive runner since sixth grade, Dr. Jason Karp quickly learned how running molds us into better, more deeply conscious people, just as the miles and interval workouts mold us into faster, more enduring runners. This passion Jason found as a kid placed him on a path that he still follows as a coach, exercise physiologist, and author of 15 books and 400 articles. In 2022, he gave a TED talk, How Running Like an Animal Makes Us Human. He is the 2011 IDEA Personal Trainer of the Year and two-time recipient of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition Community Leadership award. His run coaching certification, which has been obtained by fitness professionals and coaches in 26 countries, was acquired by International Sports Sciences Association. In 2021, he became the first American distance running coach to live and coach in Kenya. His latest book, Coaching the Kenyans, as well as his others, are available on Amazon.
