EASTERN SHORE TRAINING
ONLINE TRAINING PLANS FOR FIRST-TIME & COMPETITIVE RUNNERS ALIKE
Eastern Shore Training (EST) was established in 2014 by RRCA-certified running coach Rob Gomez as a way for him to share his passion for long-distance road racing with others.
After competing at high levels in both cross country and track in high school and then in college, Rob spent a number of years away from running. It was his return to racing with the completion of the 2007 Chicago Marathon when he re-discovered his appreciation for running. Since then, Rob has been able to channel this passion into a number of successes in road racing, most notably Maine Runner of the Year in 2013 and 2017, two top-40 finishes at the Boston Marathon and a total of eight marathons in under 2:25.
In addition to individual successes, Rob has been able to contribute to the Maine running community in various ways. In particular, he has held positions as vice president and president of the board between 2011 and 2014 for Dirigo RC, Maine's premier road racing club. He was also head coach of the girls' and boys' cross country teams at Biddeford High School in 2009 and 2010, and has been a member of the TD Beach to Beacon Road Race Board of Directors since 2020.
Since 2014, Rob has been able to share what he has learned over his 20+ years of successful running and racing with over 200 clients of all ages and ability levels. Whether you're aiming to finish your first 5k or looking for your next marathon PR, a training plan from EST will help you get where you'd like to go!
