Online Marathon Coaching

Simple, Effective and Reliable

After graduating John D. O’Bryant high school in 2005 with modest PR’s of 4:32 mile and 10:09 two mile, Sança attended UMass Lowell, where he became a 4-time All American and 3-time New England champion in distance running. He graduated with PR’s of 4:07 in the mile and 8:41 equivalent for the 2 miles. Sança attributes most of his running success to changes in coaching and training environments, which provided better opportunities for him to develop. After college, Sança has continued to run locally and internationally. On the local scene as part of the Whirlaway Racing Team, he is the 2017 New England Grand Prix Road Racing title and was elected U.S.A. Track & Field New England Male Runner of the Year. Internationally, he has been selected to represent Cabo Verde at the Lusophone Games, the Francophony Games, the Ibero-American Games, the I.A.AF. World Championships and the Olympic Games. Sança attributes his post-collegiate running success to his relentless passion for the sport of running. Because of his love for running, he’s been able to effectively balance his full time job as staff member at his Alma mater and being an international athlete. He established Lowell Running, LLC in the Fall of 2016 to use his experience and wisdom provide the same level of opportunity for everyday runners. He believes that “there are no barriers for success if you are willing to train hard and commit to your goals”
