In 2009, I decided to take the leap and sign up for my first half marathon. I had played sports all through my childhood and had run a couple fun 5Ks, but a half marathon seemed so BADASS. I trained with a generic plan and got injured within my first month (don’t worry – I started training far enough in advance to run and complete my race!). I fell in love and ran another half marathon 6 months later.
After those races, I walked on the D1 cross country team at my college and vastly improved my running with the help of my coach and our personal trainer. This is when I first saw the value in working with a coach for running. Fast forward to now, I’ve run multiple 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons, and one 50K (so far) and have become a United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy Certified Running and Ultrarunning Coach. I am also a multi sport athlete who strength trains and rock climbs regularly.
My mission is to help women reach their running goals, dream big and realize they can do more than they think, whether that’s starting to run consistently or completing their 50th 50k.
