Jonny Pellish, VP of Training

jonnypellishdcrrc

Jonny joined DCRRC in the spring of 2012. He is a regular during the fall and spring training programs and has been coaching as part of the half and full marathon training programs since he received his Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Level I certification in the spring of 2014. He's currently working on his RRCA Level II certification.

Jonny grew up near Harper Ferry, WV and lived in Nashville, TN before he moved to Washington, DC in the fall of 2008. While he was active in club sports in college, he didn't discover his love of running until his wife Claire threw down a Couch-to-5K challenge in early 2012. Since that time, Jonny has run numerous races from 5K through the marathon.

Jonny and Claire enjoy vacation adventures, usually centered around running, exploring, and eating. They are currently on a quest to tackle a bucket list of National Parks in the lower-48 -- combined with running whenever possible. Jonny works for NASA and manages an angency-wide technical capability related to microelectronics and space radiation effects. Jonny is an avid Nats fan and is always scheming for the next batch of beer to brew.
