Want to run your best Marathon? I'll show you how.

Is your running not where you want it to be? 

I get it, because I work with runners like you to take their running to new heights every day.

Because, let’s be honest, years ago I was where you are, until I learned how to do it right, became a certified pro running coach and now I’m here to help you. 

Working your tail off and missing your goals or constantly being injured and not being able to run at all is not exactly life-enhancing.

It’s that terrible feeling that you are pushing your hardest (maybe harder than others) to improve your running and you’re.just.NOT.

And then you read so much conflicting information that you don’t even know where to start. 

Including those articles that promise, “This is the ONE workout ALL runners MUST do to get faster.” Ummm… ok.  

Or those posts: “I registered for a 100-mile ultra eight months ago but I’ve only run twice in two weeks… can I still run it?” 

Yeah, no… don’t be that person… but again I digress.

But wasn’t it Einstein that said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”… ? 

So if you’ve tried methods on your own that haven’t worked, or hired another coach that bombed out, or just plain don’t know the right thing to do, let’s be honest – it’s time for something different. 

I may not be everyone’s cup of tea… ha, on a good day… but, I’m definitely “something different” … who can help you reach your goals. 

As a holistic running coach. I view training, and YOU, differently.

You are not a machine, you do not live in a bubble. You are more than just a set of numbers from a watch. 

So I optimize your training by studying your running… sure, a lot of data, but I also consider your body, mind, spirit and life – another words, YOU, holistically – so you can finally release those wings on your feet.

You Don't Have to Train For Months and Miss Your Goal or Get Injured

You don’t need to work with a coach who doesn’t understand you, doesn’t know how to meet you where you are, or treats you like a number. 

You need a running coach who has studied run training methods that work, PLUS, also has studied how the whole of YOU can make you run, and function, hence live, better. YOU run better. 

Think about it for a minute. You can’t get your best workouts if your coach is only looking at your running – and not that you are not sleeping well (Covid nightmares anyone? Kids?), having race anxiety, are stressed out, anxious or depressed and frazzled, not properly recovering, dealing with life changes, or improperly fueling or hydrating. 

It’s no wonder that 90+% of runners get injured.

These all need to be considered and strategized in the context of your training so you can REALLY get your best performance… and as a bonus – you begin to feel amazing outside of running too.

I’m trying to understand, how I’m able to run and feel so well, after years of just the opposite… because I’m used to working soooo hard all the time. Now, I’m almost never sore, have energy throughout the day, and am really beginning to enjoy running (like I did when I first started)….

The way I used to approach running and stamina… which as you’ve already said, causes short term gains, but eventually causes you to fall off the cliff and for performance to begin a downward spiral. I think that’s what’s been happening with me every year, with rock bottom being an injury that forces me to stop running altogether.

This idea of not “surviving the distance,” but instead striving to be better at the distance is what I feel like I’m doing now, and is very new… I always used to approach my long runs as me just trying to survive. There’s so much I haven’t known, haven’t done right for years, the only thing that was driving me before was passion but without the proper understanding/knowledge to support it.

As I move into marathon training and have been, in incremental ways, trying to simplify my life so that it is conducive to becoming a better runner, I’m finding that I’ve been taking stock of things…. how I began and where I am now. I’ve been thinking, long term… how I see myself as a runner and how that impacts my lifestyle today and beyond.

It’s almost like I’m having a “moment” in regards to my running, because I’m not just surviving all the time, but thriving, in a way that I haven’t been for years. For years I was just focused on making it through a season, injury free. Almost like my perspective was downward (so to speak) like I was just focused on not getting injured and surviving week to week. Now I have the opportunity to relax a bit and look at what’s going on around me. How I’ve approached running in the past and how I approach it now because of you has been a seismic shift for me. As one that values route and routine, it’s made me very reflective about where I see myself going with this.”

So instead, in addition to being almost OCD about you releasing your running greatness through your best training, I also consider the impact of holistic health and wellness on your running so you can feel great knowing you are FULLY moving toward your goals. 

Holistic health and wellness aren’t just buzzwords, I am trained in this method of coaching. 

Maybe you think, “I just need a great running coach who helps me run better”. That’s fine… because guess what, that’s what you get! 

So what’s it going to be? Are you going to finish strong, shatter your PR, run Boston, win your next race or compete in an ultramarathon?

Because you can get the results you want with personalized holistic run coaching.

I loved having the accountability to stick to the plan. I loved that Amie was able and willing to comment on efforts.... even if it was to say pull back a little. She is very communicative and feedback is helpful. I loved not having to think about planning my next step, especially long runs, was great. I had very different goals and was able to reach them. I PR’ed my 1/2, Full and 24 hour races!

"I was skeptical about having a coach. But a friend recommended Amie's coaching and so I went with it. I can say she took my running to the next level and I got an unexpected marathon PR. I thought I knew what I was doing, but wow, what a difference a coach makes. As analytical as you want to be, as well as motivating and good with long-term planning, that I hadn't thought about before. If you're serious, get her as a coach.”
