Do you want to elevate your running performance? Ok – as a pro ultra and marathon running coach, I’ll show you how.
Why? Because years ago, I was where you are.
It took me years to learn how to transform from the average runner into a top performer, and I learned from my share of mistakes and injuries along the way before I achieved success.
But I’ll tell you a little story: I was running a race that was supposed to be closed to traffic. I’d not run it before, so I was annoyed when I started to run behind a car, breathing in it’s fumes.
“Why is this car here??” I thought, “This course is supposed to be closed to traffic!”
I didn’t realize until that moment, that it was the lead car and I was winning the race. From then I saw I’d found the foundations to make run training really work.
The same foundations are what caused me to run ultras as training runs and end up on the podium.
So for the past five years, as a pro coach, I’ve used the same methods to help other women runners and master’s (age 40+) athletes with distance running success. I’m dedicated to giving back and helping runners like you make it to your top as well.
So it’s time to take a new path with your training, because, look, I’ve been there. I know how it is to work your tail off and miss your goals, or get injured and not be able to make progress at all.
You may picture the type of runner you have inside, and you want to set that runner free.
Yet despite pushing your hardest (maybe harder than others) to improve your running, it’s.just.NOT.
And you may try to sift through various information but it’s so conflicting.
Living that way is not exactly life-enhancing.
But on the flip side, I know that you have the characteristics of a champion, because you don’t give up. And it’s probably why 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.
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 want to do it right, let’s be honest – it’s time for something else.
So, you’ll definitely get “something different.” As both a pro run coach and a holistic wellness coach, I view training, and YOU, differently.
I know you’re not a machine, and you don’t live in a bubble. You’re more than just a set of numbers from a watch.
So I optimize your training by studying your running… which means sure, I look at a lot of data.
But with holistic wellness I also consider your body, mind, spirit and life – another words, YOU, holistically – so you can finally release those wings on your feet.
So 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 for women and master’s (age 40+) athletes… PLUS, has also 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, having race anxiety, are stressed out, anxious or depressed and frazzled, not properly recovering, dealing with life changes, or improperly fueling or hydrating.
Because that all has to do with your running performance (and how well you feel in life.) It’s no wonder that 90+% of runners get injured.
These also 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.
Plus, I’ll hold you accountable to your workouts, so you won’t either overtrain and not even hit the start line of your marathon, or be one of those people posting: “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 do either of those… but again I digress.)
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.”
