About Coach Kenny:
Kenny Foster is a distance runner in the US Army and currently trains in Colorado Springs, CO. Kenny is from Brookville, Pennsylvania where he ran cross country and track for two years. He continued his running career after high school by running four years of cross country at Mercyhurst College. While at Mercyhurst he eventually broke the school’s 10,000m record and earned a degree in Intelligence Studies. During his Junior and Senior years of cross country, Kenny capped off his seasons by running in the 2006 and 2007 Philadelphia Marathons. In his marathon debut, Kenny ran 2:43:41. In 2007, Kenny went back to Philadelphia, to run a new personal best time by over 10 minutes. By mile 20, Kenny was in 3rd place overall but faded to 10th place with a time of 2:32:50. Upon graduation from Mercyhurst College in 2008 Kenny commissioned as an Army Officer from the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC).
From January 2009 until July 2010, Kenny spent the majority of his time in Fort Knox, Kentucky and then Fort Bliss, Texas for officer training as well as serving as a platoon leader. During that time, Kenny would run a new personal best time in the marathon finishing 12th overall in at the 2009 California International Marathon in 2:23:03. That same race would also earn him a new personal best time of 1:09:39 in the half marathon. In July 2010, Kenny was invited to join the Army’s World Class Athlete Program (WCAP), relocating to Colorado Springs. While on WCAP, Kenny would run personal best times in every distance up to the marathon (1:05:32 half – 2:19:49 full), while suffering from a 3-month lapse in training due to a serious ailment of Rickettsia Typhii. Kenny, however, would narrowly miss the 2012 Marathon Olympic Trials “A” Standard in both the half and full marathon. In November 2011, Kenny was released from WCAP.REPLACEME
