Meet the Appleseeds Coaches

Head Coaches

Josh Maple

After running cross country and track at Adrian College in Michigan, I was asked to stay and be an Assistant Coach for the college team. Since college, I have coached all different ages in track, cross country, and road running the past twenty years. I currently coach Leo Middle School Cross Country and Track and an elementary cross country team and running club at the Parkview YMCA.

I also still run competitively in road races in distances from the 5K to the marathon. My personal records are 1:14:21 in the half marathon and 2:40:59 in the marathon.

I really enjoy coaching and watching kids have fun running and improving. I believe in age appropriate running and running games to help kids develop an appreciation for running, fitness, and reaching their goals.

“I am always inspired by other runners. I love being around positive people and draw energy from them. Whether plodders or speed demons, I love to talk to them and listen to their stories.”
