Do you want to avoid injuries and live up to your full potential?

A personal note from CEO / Coach Amie –

Ok! Let’s reach your running goals!

Hi! I’m Coach Amie, and I specialize in helping women and master’s runners achieve big marathon goals. Why? Because you’re living my story. 

It took me years to go from being the average runner (or, restarting from way below average when coming back from injury or illness – yes, I have been there too…) to learning how to train in a way that removes the frustration – and can bring, in addition to success, the joy of running into your life. 

It led to breaking three World Records for running marathons on every continent, qualifying for every Marathon Major including Boston multiple times, and finishing on the podium – instead of going home anonymously with unsatisfying results. 

I went through the challenges that you face. 

So, I became a distance running coach so that runners like you can avoid making the frustration and mistakes I made, like:

  • Working your tail off and missing your goals, or ending up injured and not able to run at all.
  • Envisioning the type of runner you have inside of you, but not being able to set that runner free.  
  • Facing an uphill battle to continue believing in yourself and keep going after your goals, when others may doubt your efforts. 
  • Maybe you even have a nagging sense of self-doubt that you may never reach your goal, and it’s dragging your overall confidence level down as a result. 
  • Getting demotivated, feeling like you’re doing “all the things” and maybe even working harder than everyone else… and YET, you’re not getting the results you want. \
  • Reading all that generic and confusing information like the articles that say, “This is the ONE workout you need to do to get faster.”
  • Trying the training plans that stick you in a box with everyone else, and leave you overtrained, injured, or ending far below your potential.

Living that way is not exactly Life-enhancing (and my company is “Running with Life”, you know…)

This is the power of the Holistic Training System. Oh and, check out my shoelaces HAHA! With temps in the 80s, it was sort of the least of my concerns.

 

But on the flip side, I’m here to say that you must have the characteristics of a Champion. You’re driven and don’t give up… because, you’re here.

I can also tell you that when you learn how to reach your running goals in the healthiest way possible, it is LIFE-enhancing. 

Running
I must like hot races. Except I have run a marathon in Antarctica before, too...

It feels great to run and be at your BEST.

So if you’ve tried methods on your own that haven’t worked or hired another coach that bombed out, or your goal is SO BIG and you really just want to do it right, let’s be honest – it’s time for something new.

And as a holistic running coach, that’s what I am. Runners tell me they could tell a difference from our very first conversation.

Why?

Because unlike other running coaches, I’m not just a Pro Performance Coach, who focuses on numbers and tells you what to do.

I’m also trained as a Professional Holistic Wellness Coach – and there is a night and day difference in the techniques and focus of these types of coaching.

Yes, I look at your running data (I have five certifications in run coaching), so you get optimal training customized for YOU.

BUT we also look holistically at the many ways that other aspects of your conditioning, mindset and lifestyle could be helping or hindering your goals.

So yes, it’s like you’re getting … two trained coaches in one.

So you get a total strategy to reach your top performance.

It’s more than “just running”…

Elite runners take all of this into consideration for their world-class performances. And now you can, too.

Really!!

Let’s move forward, together! –Coach Amie

But don't take my word for it, see what Angie says:

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.”

Is The Holistic Training System Right For Me?

Does any of this sound like YOU…?

You have a target you want to hit and it involves running 26.2 miles…

Maybe it’s Boston. Maybe it’s the podium. Maybe it’s breaking your PR.
 
Maybe it’s just finishing the race (or even reaching the start line) without injury or feeling destroyed.
 
You know that you put so much effort into training, you want to avoid defeat and wasted time because you missed your goal.
 
Maybe you feel like you’re running the best you can but you know you can do better (you just don’t know how.) 
 
Or you’ve run a marathon but it’s been a while and life has gotten in the way, and you want to get back into your best possible condition and return to, or even surpass, where you were before… 
 
Perhaps you’re tired of being sidelined from your top potential by injuries, overtraining, demotivation or even a lack of support for your goals.
 
You could have a “secret” (or not so secret) goal of just knowing or telling your friends that you are a Boston Qualifier or that you’ve “run Boston”. 
 
Or you’re just sick of “that look” people give you when they ask if you’ve run the Boston Marathon (or other qualifier/challenge), and you have to say “No.”
 
Or, you want to become an Abbott six-star finisher by completing all the Marathon Majors: Boston, Chicago, New York, Tokyo, Berlin, and London. 
 
Or perhaps running a marathon is on your “bucket list” and doesn’t even seem real yet – you may be so pumped from finishing your first 5K that you JUST KNOW a marathon is quite possibly in your future, even if far away… 
 

BUT no matter your goal, you want to do it without being one of the estimated 90% of runners who get injured. 

Maybe you’re burned out and need a jump start with something new. 

You want to get that GREAT feeling of finishing a marathon at your best. 

Well, if any of this even remotely sounds like you – you’ve found the right place! 

This coaching program has limited enrollment spaces and specializes in existing or returning runners with a Marathon goal. 

While you don’t have to have run a marathon before, it’s best if you’ve had some running experience, even if it’s not recent.

If it’s your dream to run a marathon – but you haven’t yet started running, contact me to find out about other programs that can help you get started.

Get your best running performance by remembering what's most important: YOU

Don’t work with a coach who doesn’t understand you, doesn’t know how to meet you where you are, or treats you like data. 

Because this all has to do with your running performance – and how well you feel in life. 

When you leave things out of the picture – it’s no wonder that 90+% of runners get injured, or feel burned out of running and frankly, are not happy.

Instead, REALLY get your best performance… and as a bonus – you begin to feel amazing outside of running too.

"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.”
