Coach Lan Ly

lan-lyLan fell in love with running at the age of 13 in junior high school. She competed in cross country and track and field distances of 3200m, 1600m, 800m, and 400m throughout all 4 years of high school.

Lan graduated from the University of California,
San Diego with her B.S. in Biochemistry and then received her Ph.D in Nutrition at Texas A&M University.

Since then, Lan has run 13 marathons and 1 ultra-marathon (60K). She is a 4-time Boston marathon qualifier and loves the atmosphere and energy at races.

Lan is on the planning committee for the B/CS Marathon & 1/2 Marathon event and is thrilled this wonderful event is coming to fruition. Running has become essential for her daily life and believes in the physical and therapeutic health benefits that it brings.

Lan knows that her years of personal running experience and educational background can help you reach your goals.

Coach Kevin Scroggins

Coach Kevin Scroggins at the top of Beaver Creek, CO May 2011

The consummate outdoorsman, Kevin Scroggins has been on the run his whole life. That could be why his coaching motto is, “cardio, cardio, cardio!”

In high school, Kevin was a district and regional champion in the mile and high jump with his 4A Houston ISD track and field team. This early success led him to receiving a track and field scholarship at The University of Texas at Austin.

In addition to more than 20 years experience of running, Kevin began road cycling and has been competitive in duathlons for the past decade. In 2002, he ranked in the top 25 in the state of Texas for the 5K, and in 2004 was named one of the top 700 duathletes by the USA Triathlon Association.

It is this passion for running—along with his desire to motivate others to achieve health— that has led Kevin to training and coaching runners in the College Station area. He has worked with people of all levels to complete long distance running events and duathlons.

With the right coaching, mentorship, and desire, Kevin believes everyone can break past their own barriers to achieve health and fitness.

Kevin resides in College Station and when he is not running, cycling, or coaching others he can most likely be found cooking a new recipe, designing new landscapes for the yard, and traveling.

 

Coach Jessica Rogers

troyJessica has been a runner and self-proclaimed long distance running junkie since running her first mile in junior high school. She has completed two half marathons and two marathons, narrowly missing qualifying for Boston (running a 3:41:48 in Houston), a goal which she hopes to achieve at the BCS Marathon.

Jessica has also decided to finally make the leap to ultra-marathons and is training for the Rocky Raccoon 50 mile race in February, with dreams of running 100 mile races in the future.

Jessica believes that regardless of whether your goal is to run one mile or 100, the challenge is always the same: to push yourself past YOUR limits. Training with a group is one of the greatest ways to accomplish this because you are surrounded by others who share the same goal and who can inspire and motivate you to push yourself further than you thought possible.

Running is a passion for Jessica (and a fantastic way to balance out her love of pasta!).

She would love to share this passion with other runners and help them to achieve their goals.

Jessica graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Finance. She lives in Bryan with her son Austin.
