SPECIALTIES

While I may be new to coaching, my extensive background in running equips me with a unique blend of insights and practical knowledge that I’m eager to share with my athletes. My journey has not just been about covering miles; it’s been a deep dive into understanding the nuances of running, such as mental resilience required to push through those longer efforts.

PHILOSOPHY

A major focus of my coaching philosophy is injury prevention. The well-being of my athletes is paramount (which includes fueling and recovering like an athlete) along with this together we can include the much needed proper warm-up and cool-down routines, and technique adjustments to ensure a healthy and sustainable running practice. I understand that every runner’s body and journey are unique, which is why I emphasize personalized strategies to remain injury-free.

COACHING EXPERIENCE

While I have not yet had the opportunity to coach in a formal setting or with specific groups such as school programs or professional athletes, my ambition is to broaden my experience across a diverse range of runners. I am particularly interested in working with individuals who are new to running or looking to achieve personal milestones, where I believe my attentive approach and focus on injury prevention can make a significant impact.

ABOUT ME

I am a military brat turned military spouse, my husband and I have been married for 15 years and together we share 3 kids (14, 9 &4) and two dogs. One Vizsla who runs all the miles with me and a French bulldog who is my recovery and rest buddy. Running is not just a hobby for me; it’s a passion that courses through my veins. This passion has guided me to where I am today, a dedicated run coach, eager to share my love for running with others. My journey into running has been one of self-discovery, resilience, and continuous learning. In my downtime, I immerse myself in the world of running, from reading the latest literature on running techniques and nutrition to watching YouTube reviews of the newest running shoes. I’m fascinated by the science of movement and how our bodies adapt and respond to different forms of exercise, nutrition, and recovery.

My commitment to a well-rounded fitness regimen has led me to explore various forms of cross-training. I find great joy in rowing on my Peloton rower, which complements my running by building strength and endurance without the high impact. Cycling, whether outdoors or on my stationary bike, offers me a refreshing change of pace and scenery, while strength classes challenge me to push my physical limits and build the muscle support essential for running efficiency and injury prevention.

BIG INFLUENCES

I met my own run coach with Team Run Run and her name is Cassie Nevins. She has been a great inspiration and has personally coached through one ultra marathon and a road marathon. Along with Cassie, a very special friend of mine Sala has also been a great friend and influenced me to take the RRCA Coaching certification.

RACING HISTORY

I’ve been personally racing since winter of 2017, where I entered into my 1st Half Marathon with the Rock n Roll series in San Antonio, Texas. After finishing this race, the rest of running for me “is history”. I’m hooked!
