I know the hesitancies of a beginner runner and also the doubts of the experienced runner endeavoring to reach a new goal. My running career started after having 2 of our 3 children, at age 34. My interest in running was a hope to introduce a positive, healthy activity in a difficult time in life. Those first miles, in 2006, while not the best experience due to the pains of starting, gave me a sense of accomplishment physically and mentally. It kept me running. In fact, it was the beginning of a lifelong active lifestyle. Since 2006, I’ve run 10 marathons, and countless half marathons, 10K’s, and 5K’s. I progressed from a 10 min/mile pace to a Boston Qualifier, a goal that seemed incomprehensible. I believe in human physiological and psychological potential, especially in the face of doubt and limitation. I work with individuals to customize a plan and process to fit their vision in running and in life.
Let’s get started: Due to individual focus and capacity limitations, I work with 3 individuals at a time. Must qualify by completing application/questionnaire. Call, text, or email with requests/questions.
