For Brennan Bonner, running has been a central aspect of his life for the past fifteen years. What started in high school as an avenue for staying active during the offseason of basketball and soccer slowly transformed first into his main athletic interest and, ultimately, into his passion. Brennan continued to run in college at Washington University in St. Louis where he became one of the top NCAA Division III runners in the nation.

After graduating college, he moved to Boston where he began his career as a teacher. During this time, he also began training with Greater Boston Track Club. While teaching, first at the middle school level and then at the high school level, Brennan discovered the enjoyment of sharing his love for running with others. More recently, Brennan, or Coach B as many of his athletes call him, has continued to expand his coaching to include adults looking to become better runners.
