The Running Architect is Coach Lee Mamola. Coach Lee's approach also uniquely blends the architectural design process with running. There are numerous similarities between the practice of architecture and running.

Coach Lee blends his 52 years of running with 48 years of architecture to provide his truly unique style of coaching.
