If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions…
Do you want to take your running to the next level, but you’re not sure how, or what that even means?
Are you looking for structure and accountability?
Are you overwhelmed by all the information coming at you online?
Are you getting back into running or getting into for the first time after having a baby and short on time?
Are you training for a 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon?
I can help
I get what it’s like to be busy. I am a homeschooling mom of two elementary grade kids, a freelance writer, a professional speaker, and an American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified personal trainer. I understand the Tetris game of fitting your runs into your jam-packed calendar.
I get what it’s like to not even be sure if you’re “good enough” to hire professional help. I was there. I’d gone from consistently mediocre to above average on my own and thought just maybe, a coach with some experience, knowledge, and objectivity could help me realize my potential. But I was scared to ask for help; worried what my friends would think; worried I’d be wasting my money on information I could find in a book. If you’re where I was, stop that. Just stop. Because a) you’re worth it b) your friends really don’t care, I promise.
As a kid, I hated sports. I was picked last for every team. By a fluke, I discovered that I loved running. Of course, it wasn’t right away. First I had to get over the sensation of wanting to die after a jog around the block. (That sucked.) Something compelled me to keep running and eventually, I completed six marathons, two Ironman triathlons, as well as countless other endurance events. I have a masters degree in occupational therapy and over ten years of clinical experience; Understanding how the mind, body, and spirit influence performance is my jam. Let me bring my personal and professional experience to work for you.
