Embarly finds happiness in seeing children swell with pride over their athletic accomplishments no matter how big or small.

Craig Moss
Gremlin Co-Head Coach

At age 18 I came to running to lose some weight, accidentally completed a marathon. Twenty-nine years later I am still running and loving every minute of it. I used to classify myself as a “marathoner” as that’s what I loved to train for and complete. After 47 marathons I have focused more on running for fun and fitness than chasing distances and time goals.

I have been a coach of the Students Run LA program that is offered to LAUSD middle and highs school students for 15 years. Our main goal was to train for the LA Marathon each March. So my main coaching experience is with older kids and longer distances. I look forward to putting on a new “coaching hat” as a Storm Bantam Coach.
