SAVANNAH — The oldest city in Georgia played host to thousands of runners and hundreds of musicians and entertainers at the seventh edition of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on Saturday. Conditions in the “hostess city of the South” were warm for this time of year, but organizers had prepared to give participants the best-possible race and started the event 10 minutes early. Nevertheless, at the sounding of the starting gun, temperatures were in the high 50s—optimal for fast times and many PRs.

krahe.jpg The Internet has allowed more runners to work with coaches — and for more people to become coaches themselves. Just like runners, the story behind each coach is different. The how and why they decided to coach, and how they go about it.

Denny Krahe only recently became a runner — but worked as an athletic trainer, in physical therapy, and as a personal trainer, first. Based in Lakeland, Florida, when he finally caught the running bug, Denny caught it hard.

Now a running coach and host of the popular running podcast DizRuns, Denny is on a quest: to run a marathon in every state and to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
