Our Coaches

Matt – Green Group Head Coach (Pace Group 8 – 9:30 minute mile)


Matt joined Tampa Bay Fit in 2004, having never done any distance running. He wasn’t terribly good. Then things clicked, and he hasn’t looked back. As of June 2018, he will have run 51 marathons in 43 states, plus bunches of half marathons. If all goes well, he will be at 46 states when the season starts….. He’s well on his way to running a marathon in all 50 states before he turns 50.  He has run Boston, and his best time is 3:16, which he somehow ran at the Mercedes Marathon in Birmingham. Matt helps coach TBF runners because he enjoys helping runners meet their goals and learn how to finish races happy. He’s willing to work with anyone who wants to get better. Whether you’re blazing fast or more of a plodder, you can enjoy distance runs and finish them with a smile on your face!

Matt has had the good fortune of running all over the country, and he is continuously reminded that the St. Pete waterfront is one of the most beautiful places to run.  He can’t wait for our next season to start.

When running, Matt tries to forget that he is an attorney.  He and his wife live downtown.
