Bob Schneider is a lifelong runner and educator, most recently a math teacher at Edina (MN USA) High School. While he no longer runs due to a knee injury suffered coaching high school basketball, running has been one of the defining characteristics of his life.
Bob currently works on eTRaXC/My eTRaXC while managing a timing company focusing on fitness events, multi-sports, cross-country, and specialty events in the upper midwest.
Bob developed this site after taking over the cross-country program at Robbinsdale (MN USA) Cooper High School in 2003 and was looking for a way to get his new team to run over the summer. After having little success in previous attempts at getting kids to run and record their mileage, he came up with this idea.
eTRaXC is a team-based, coach-directed fitness team manager. It is a cross-country team manager that can be used for track and field, Nordic skiiing, and fitness clubs, including a cross-country training log, communication utilities, runner social networking and other functionality. eTRaXC includes a companion site, My-eTRaXC, designed specifically as a personal trainer for individuals.
