Jimmy is known for getting inside his athletes’ heads and his emphasis on training the mind like a muscle. Since 2002, he has coached more than a two-thousand adults (and young people) to run further and run more efficiently by creating an uplifting environment to propel people to break through self-imposed glass ceilings. Jimmy has been running competitively for 30 years (200+ races, including the Angeles Crest 100, the Western States 100 and Badwater 135) and has over 14 years of coaching experience tackling ultra endurance over the last decade. He has helped many runners & athletes to complete their first ultra races and 100 milers, and has personally completed 28+ races of 50 miles (or further) while failing to finish 5 races over that stretch. Personal bests include a 1:18 Half Marathon, 2:56 Marathon, 3:56 50k, 7:07 50 miler & 17:34 100 miler. Jimmy is also the father of two kids who can out-endurance him any day.

Half Marathons to Ultra Marathons

Coyote Running offers running coaching and training programs on both road and trail for every distance from the half marathon to ultras. Based in West Los Angeles, we aim to offer runners something a little more off the beaten path.  Often, quite literally. We specialize in training runners in a non-traditional format for marathons, 50ks, and 50 milers, but we’ll gladly help you prepare for a race of any distance, be it a shorter XTERRA trail race to a 100 miler (or worse).

The only thing you have to lose is that old tired routine of running the same exact long run every single week on that same exact course at that same exact pace. If you are ready for something different, something new, then you are ready to rock it out with Coyote Running to your best race yet.

Deb Morrison and Morrison and Co
Guest Biography: 


As enamored as Buck Owens was with his native Bakersfield, Morrison & Company bring to bear all the unique flavors of their lost-in-time equestrian hometown of Altadena. 

Their West Coast Americana signature sound is reminiscent of the iconic 1970s Laurel Canyon scene melded together with the sultry feel of the high desert. Heavy with weepy pedal steel and Bigsby drenched guitar riffs, they make no bones about jamming it out old school when they strike a rich vein, but always come back to their ear-worm choruses that folks can’t seem shake. 

Morrison & Company were conceived in a dilapidated old manor house on the outskirts of Los Angeles during the now infamous house party jams called “The Living Room Sessions.”

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
