Ryan Shay - World Class Runners

Written by Coach Tom McGlynn

A year ago we lost a great friend, husband, son, brother, and competitor in Central Park. This weekend in NYC there will be several activities in his honor including a park bench dedication and a large group of Notre Dame Alumni running the race.

My heart goes out to his wife Alicia, parents, siblings and close friends. He is gone from our sight but very much present in spirit.

Tom started runcoach in 2002. His main objective was to equip more runners with the successful training philosophies he was exposed to. In 2007 Tom and the team found a way to make our proven training more widely available through the new online resource

Tom has qualified for the Olympic Trials Marathon three times (2000 ’04 and ’08). He trained under legendary coach Harry Groves at Penn State and graduated in 1996. Tom ran with the Nike Farm Team and Coaches Jeff Johnson, Vin Lananna, Jack Daniels and Ray Appenheimer from 1996-2004. From 2004-2006 Tom served as Assistant Distance Coach to Frank Gagliano for the Nike Farm Team.

Through runcoach Tom has helped thousands of runners set new PR’s. He has trained Marathoners ranging from 2:15 to 8:15 and remains convinced that anyone can improve their running with the right approach.
