Life is demanding and full of surprises. We get that. Our coaches will work with you 1:1 to understand your life constraints and design and adjust a training plan that best suits your life.

Few of us are fortunate enough to lead the life of a professional athlete. For most of us, our passion for running comes after work and family. We want to make your interactions with us as easy and efficient as possible.
RESULTS ORIENTED COACHING
We don’t care about certifications or gimmicks. We care about results. Our training principles have been proven through countless personal victories for our athletes. If you follow our system, we will stand by your results.

Recovery is king
Mental training is as important as physical training. In fact, the two are inextricably linked. We take our athletes on a journey of self-discovery that explores the depths of your mental and physical preparedness to achieve your greatest athletic ambitions.
commitment to hone your craft
It takes time to hone your craft. We ask you to commit to at least a six months of coaching and programming to work through the basics of our mental and physical training framework.
Stated command performance
We are dragon slayers! We like goals that are so scary they keep us up at night. They make us afraid in a way that we never forget we are living a life of purpose and intent.

Running is the vehicle on our journey to becoming our best self. Speed doesn’t matter as long as you are moving forward. I’ve been a runner for 20 years. I ran cross country and track in high school and at the University of Michigan. In 2015, I ran my marathon PR in 2:50 an my half PR in 1:19. Since then I’ve been focused mostly on trail running. I have 5 years coaching experience with cross country and track athletes and an additional 4 years of experience coaching at Rogue. I love working with athletes of all abilities training for any distance. I believe that coaching is a little art and a little science so I combine what I have learned through research with my experiences as a coach and athlete. I believe every athlete is different and will do best with a custom program and a coach that listens and adapts. I provide my athletes with unwavering support throughout their journey.
I'm an old soul who fell into trail running some 25 odd years ago. I've finished 131 trail races (and still counting), directed a few races (road and trail), and now spend my time coaching. I have never been an elite level runner, known more for my bull-headed persistence, deep experience, and knowledge of the sport.
I tend to over-analyze all facets of a race well before lining up and then attempt to run with the joy of a 10 year old on race day. My preference is for longer, more technical, and rugged terrain, but I still enjoy every other type of race just for the variety of it. I’m in my 60s now, and not as fast as I used to be, which was never that fast to begin with, but the joy is still the same, and I know how to get it done.
Like many lifelong runners, Dude Spellings began his running career in high school. In his junior year, Dude won the state 2A title in the mile, the 2 mile, and the mile relay. Dude repeated as a state champion the next year. In college, Dude ran one season of Cross Country at St. Edwards before dropping out of competitive running.
Dude started experimenting with distance running and completed his first marathon in 2002. In 2004, he ran 16 ultramarathons and did an unsupported Rim To Rim to Rim run of the Grand Canyon.
More recently, Dude has devoted significant time to learning about how the body uses fuel during endurance events, nutrition for runners, and how to build aerobic fitness. He is currently pursuing a health coaching certification from the Primal Health Coach Institute, which focuses on Mark Sisson’s style of coaching that emphasizes health and longevity in addition to athletic performance.
I've been running & competing for 16 years and I've met some of my best friends on the roads. I run to test my limits, to see what I can accomplish if I push beyond where I think I can go.
Take the first step and then commit to listening to your coach. They will not give you something you can't handle.
A former road cyclist and mountain biker, Brent ran his first marathon at Austin in 2003. It was special, not because of the time he finished in (4:00:32), but because of the experience that he had running his hometown race and finishing his first marathon. Since then he has gone on to complete 10 more marathons, to include 2 Boston finishes and a 2:48 PR at CIM in December 2018. Brent has also been a marathon coach at Rogue Running for the last 8 years. Along the way he has helped many athletes achieve their goals … from first time marathoners crossing the finish line with a smile on their face to front of the pack runners qualifying for their first Boston. Additionally, he has supported more local athletes by serving as a member of the pacing team for the Austin Marathon for the last two years.
Brent is married with 3 boys, Cooper (8), Zachary (13) and Evan (15). His wife, Carrie owns her own advertising agency. Together they do their best to balance careers, kid’s activities, exercise & school while also trying to enjoy as much time playing outside with the boys … camping, hiking, basketball, cycling, trampoline, etc!
Effort over everything! Talent alone won’t bring success. You have to work hard. And you have to be smart. Running and racing isn’t just physical. It’s mental, it’s logistical, and it’s spiritual.
I’m an ultrarunner and I love coaching untrarunners. My coaching philosophy balances health span and longevity with performance. That means my programming is a blend of running, strength training, nutrition, and lifestyle change.
