Tony Williams , Founder & Owner Coach Tony

Tony began running April 5, 1979. He was a 14 year old 8th grader at PS #5 in Patterson, New Jersey. He had run a mile in 5:38, which he thought was pretty good until news reached him of a girl in his school who had just run a mile in 5:28.
...
The night before his first high school track race, at age 15, Tony wrote a note to his parents and hung it on his bedroom door. It read, "Do not disturb, runner asleep. It was signed " Always Running, Tony Williams. Since then Tony has logged over 70,000 miles in his running career with only 80 days missed during his first 20 years of running. He excelled as a high school, collegiate and post-collegiate runner, and was a two-time Jr. National champion. Tony graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Psychology in 1989. While attending Virginia Tech he won the NCAA Division I All-American honors in both the 10,000 meter and cross country events. Tony became a Nike sponsored athlete in 1984, maintaining that sponsorship until 1997. In 1996 he completed the US Olympic Men's Marathon Trials.
He has completed numerous races of all lengths. His various PR's are: Marathon - 2:22:00, half marathon - 1:05:05, 10K - 28:55, 5K - 14:10, and continues to coach others in reaching their goals while maintaining his training. Tony stopped competing on a elite level in 1999 but still runs 30-40 miles per week.

Always Running : About : History

www.alwaysrunning.com [cached]

The concept of Always Running as a business originated in 1993 but its roots took hold 14 years earlier when Coach Tony Williams ran his first mile as part of a fitness test in the 8 th grade. Here, Tony's career took off and it hasn't stopped for the past 27 years.

Always Running Van
As an elite athlete Tony has always asked himself what people needed in order to maintain their fitness. How were gyms failing the mass population? Coming from a career in counseling, Tony knew he had to look at each person as an individual - each of us has a unique genetic code, requiring different tools to reach the same goal. Coach himself had the experience of someone trying to fit him into a mold during his college days. Having come from a High School Coach who paid attention to his individual needs to college where he was given the workouts that the coach assigned year after year - he rebelled and looked at his needs as an individual.
In 1993, Williams had just moved to Seattle and was approached by someone at a race to coach her husband and, thus, his coaching career began. Over time, more and more people approached him about coaching. As clients' needs grew, so did Always Running.
The first few clients were one-on-one through mobile support, utilizing the parks throughout King County. For his own training, Coach Tony explored the hundreds of trails throughout Puget Sound, such as Tiger Mountain, Cougar Mountain and the Iron Horse Trail. Always Running's group run events grew from his clients' desires to check out the same trails. To bring his clients together for group runs, he knew that he needed to accommodate their various paces so he developed a staggered start time, where he would start the slowest group first followed another every 2-3 minutes and everyone would see each other on the trail and finish at the same time. As the courses became more elaborate, Coach Tony would run the course first, chalking the directional symbols so that no one would get lost. Today, the group runs have evolved into an inventory of over 100 trails throughout the Puget Sound area, so clients never run the same trail in the same year.
Always Running continued to grow throughout the years based on clients' needs and resulting in Tony hiring his first employee in 1997, a personal trainer to help build clients' strength training. In that same year, Always Running opened its first mini-gym location in a one-car garage.
As clients' confidence in Coach Tony and his staff increased, they began to ask for coaching outside of running, including triathlons, climbing and cycling. Coach Tony also developed a Medical Liaison program, attending doctor appointments with clients for their fitness-related injuries.
