 "Working with Adam from Big Things Crewing has been a fantastic experience.  I live in Europe but am American, so I wanted an English-speaking coach.  Adam has been super accommodating when it comes to means of communication in order to make the coaching fit both of our time zones.  As for the coaching itself, Adam is a great motivator.  He gives me a kick in the a$$ when needed, but he also helps me work though my own mental BS when I need more of a life coach than a drill sergeant.  He really listened both to what I was looking for in a coach, and what was realistic in terms of my training schedule.  He helped me hit my goal of my first 50k this past summer and even though we were 8000 km apart, I felt like he was with me every step of the way.  If I get the chance, I will absolutely do an "IRL" race in the US and have him crew for me someday."
