I have been a competitive runner most of my life, only taking a long break while starting a family. When I returned to running I had a strong desire to not only become competitive again, but also wanting to better understand the physiological aspect of running and how to apply that knowledge to train athletes to achieve their personal goals.
I'm a USATF Level 1 certified coach and most recently guided 20+ athletes to their first 5k. My coaching passion is seeing athletes achieve things they never thought possible. Goals, progression, maybe some setbacks, and the ability to help successfully guide athletes through it all are what coaching is all about.
