Donald Whetstine has a love for running and a mission of helping others gain an understanding of all the aspects of endurance running. Donald is an experienced Professional Running Coach, Holistic Health Practitioner, Certified Fitness Instructor and Credentialed Physical Education Instructor. With over 25 years of coaching endurance runners his approach has always been to help each runner on an individual basis: not everyones' needs are identical. He has gained the knowledge of what it takes to train for endurance races by competing in 55 marathons, 27 of which were sub 3 hours and 24 more at sub 4 hours, and 21 half marathons. Seaside Runners of San Diego enables him to pass on the knowledge and passion he has for the sport of endurance running.
