I want to help athletes like you find the finish line again, to simplify your life, to find clarity, to accomplish what others have said cannot be done, and strategize with you to execute your best event ever.


You want to run the race you’ve always wanted to run.

You want to bike the century you’ve always wanted to bike.

You want to hike the mountain you’ve always wanted to hike.

But you’re stuck. You feel like you’re running in wet concrete. Your legs are heavy, and you’re not moving forward.

I can help.

If you’re here, I imagine that you are (or once were) a runner, a swimmer, a biker or perhaps a tri-athlete…You like (or liked) to push the limits…You seek (or once sought) out events that will test (or did test) your mettle.

But you have a really busy life. And life has interfered with continuing, or chasing, your athletic hopes, dreams, desires.

You don’t want to recapture lost youth, or drive Doc Brown’s DeLorean from “Back to the Future.”

You just want to feel the rush of adrenaline that endurance events never fail to provide. You want that feeling of satisfaction, of meaning, of progress, of a task completed, of a mission accomplished. And you want to embrace the process.

But it all seems too overwhelming to kick start.

I want to help athletes like you find the finish line again, to simplify your life, to find clarity, to accomplish what others have said cannot be done, and strategize with you to execute your best event ever.

How? With physical and emotional fuel. With focus and fortitude. With empathy and community. With event and race logistic support. With purposeful effort.

Message me, or email me at carl@carlficks.com. I would relish connecting with you.

I have run and cycled thousands of miles, competed in dozens of marathons, raced an ultra, and enjoyed multiple century rides. I have walked, run, driven, biked and flown to all kinds of events. So I know a thing or two about endurance events.

I have also waffled in and out of shape, so I know how you might be feeling.

I have practiced law for nearly 30 years, providing operational, training, risk management and strategic advice to companies in the construction, material supply and maritime industries. So I know a thing or two about details and planning.

I have also fumbled a few details along the way, so I know what you might be thinking.

I want to partner with you so you can run that race, ride that century or hike that mountain, have some fun in the process and avoid a few of the hassles along the way.

What are you waiting for?
