Coaching

I coach runners of all abilities, with all types of goals from 5k personal records to marathon qualifying times to 50mi+ ultramarathons.

 

I make it my priority to help fit training into your life in whatever ways are most meaningful for you. With a focus on fostering a love of the process, I'm confident I can help you build consistency and running economy to reach your goals in 2019 and beyond! I coach my athletes with long-term progressions in mind, not short-term gains which can come with an increased risk of injury and burnout. 

You can see more specific details about what to expect with coaching on the Coaching Details page.

My coaching is: 

  • Fully customized to your life and schedule.

  • Focused on long-term development of you as a consistent and happy person and runner over years, not just a single training cycle.

  • Not a cookie-cutter plan! For example, you can race frequently in a build-up to an A race, something pre-made plans make difficult. 

  • Dedicated to fitting into your life. Stock training plans may not fit your life/schedule. A personal coach can make running fit seamlessly!

  • Updated daily. Yes, your training log will be updated daily with feedback, adjustments, motivation and conversation!

  • Responsive to changes as life stresses inevitably occur. I can adjust your plan so a stressful situation has minimal impact on your running.

  • Includes strength training and injury pre-hab advice (with the caveat that I'm not a doctor and speaking solely from personal experience!)

  • Always available for any questions you have. Communication is always unlimited via email, text and training log, and we can arrange phone calls and Skype as well!

Packages including all of the above start at $80.

I always offer the first two weeks free (or 50% off the first month if you prefer to do it that way), so you can see if we're a good fit.

If you have friends, training partners or teammates that might be interested in coaching, contact me for a group discount! There is no obligation to train for the same races, or continue forever!

The "back end" of payments and training log creation is handled by the good folks at Team RunRun. You can click this link for more information!

Please feel free to email me at any time with questions to see if we'd be a good fit, or even if you just want some short-term advice!
