Our two coaches are David Parkinson and Adam Forkner. Together, they have over 30 years of running experience.
David was a member of the DWRT leadership team in New York and relocated to Boston in September of 2015. An attorney, he is also a RRCA-certified coach and has run 20 marathons, including 6 Boston Marathons.
Adam co-founded the Boston chapter with David in 2015. Adam grew up in Milton and attended Trinity College, where he was captain of the cross country team and teammate of DWRT co-founder Matt Wong. He received his J.D. from Boston University School of Law and worked as a lawyer and advisor for the Deval Patrick administration. He has also served as a volunteer assistant track coach at the Epiphany School in Dorchester. While most of his racing experience is in shorter distances (28:06 8K XC, 35:38 10K), Adam is excited about a foray into the half and full marathons. He lives in the Back Bay with his wife and two sons.
