rock-n-roll-logo-2015We are proud to introduce Jordan, our Team Volken trainer for the upcoming Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon and 10K.  Jordan will be holding a run training weekly with some of our students and any locally registered TEAM VOLKEN runners, leading up to the race event.  See his bio below:

Thank you for joining Team Volken!! My name is Jordan Weller, I am thrilled and honoured to be your run coach!!!:)  I am committed to you realizing and crushing all of your goals.  I love running because I used to be incredibly out of shape and felt washed up and like my best days were behind me. From running over the past 7 years I have taken my 10k time from an hour and 10 minutes to 43 minutes and 46 seconds. I have completed over half a dozen half marathons. 3 full marathons and finished races last year 10th, 6th and 4th, I am now hungry for a top 3 finish and a medal. I love the community of people in running and I love the challenge of bringing excellence to life and becoming an elite athlete.  I am committed to everyone realizing their greatness.  You can catch me running in downtown Vancouver, in Kitsilano and trails across the lower mainland.  Over 2 years ago I gave up drinking alcohol so I could be a better friend, family member, and make a difference for people in my community.  Getting to meet the people at the John Volken Academy and seeing the work they are doing with people battling addiction is truly inspiring.  I truly believe life is not about where a person has been, but where they are going.  Together as a community through raising funds, while realizing our own greatness, we can support this amazing cause.  Anything is possible if you have the courage to make it happen!
