Head Running Coach Amie

I’m Amie Dworecki, a certified coach, runner, entrepreneur, and caregiver.

Running has always been my passion, but injuries kept holding me back.

Determined to overcome these setbacks, I developed a holistic approach that helped me not only return to running but also qualify for the Boston Marathon (multiple times!) and train for a sub-3-hour marathon in my 40s – all injury-free.

My advice has been featured in Runner’s World, Women’s Running, and more because I help runners avoid the mistakes I made and reach their full potential.

I combine my expertise in coaching with a focus on your training, fueling, recovery, mindset, and performance lifestyle to create a program that gets results.

When I’m not coaching or spending time with my loved ones, you’ll find me:

  • Running long country roads with my furry companion, Cody.
  • Seeking zen moments with my feline friends (when they let me!).
  • Tending to my organic garden.

I understand the challenges runners face, and I’m here to guide you towards achieving your marathon dreams.

Real Runners, Real Results: What They Say About Holistic Marathon Coaching

"My biggest fear was getting injured after getting shin splints on very light weekly volume... most runners do get injured. 
So, when I hired Amie, our number one goal was to stay FREE OF INJURY. If you are injured, you cannot accomplish any of your running goals while recovering, and so that will always be my number one goal.
I am pleased that I was able to get up to 55 miles a week without any injuries through the process. I was able to finish my marathon strong and injury-free in terrible conditions of 22- to 30-mile an hour wind. I just walked away and had lunch! 
She truly understands how to train a runner with big goals on the horizon... If you want a coach that can help you reach your goals... then Amie is the coach you want on your side."

Reached her targets and has trained for the Chicago and Berlin Marathons, with plans to run all the World Marathon Majors
I went from having so many injuries that my doctor told me that maybe I wasn't meant to be a runner. Now, I'm running Boston Qualifying times. So 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... eventually causes you to fall off the cliff and for performance to begin a downward spiral... 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 a passion but without the proper understanding/knowledge to support it. 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. How I've approached running in the past and how I approach it and run now because of you has been a seismic shift for me."

"It was nice to change things up, both speed and distance-wise - and I could see genuine progress. I've run races like I've never done before. I've also learned the importance of actually resting your body and a lot more about better fueling. I would recommend Amie because she really helped me to enjoy running again. Before hiring her, running had stopped being something I enjoyed, and started being something that felt discouraging and only did for the exercise. I now look forward to running again, and she's definitely helped me to become a stronger runner!"

What you get from Holistic Marathon Run Coaching:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
about Personal Run Coaching with The Holistic Marathon Program

Our complimentary strategy session is designed to help you gain clarity and direction toward your marathon goals and explore how coaching can support you in achieving them.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Schedule a convenient call: We’ll work with you to find a time that fits your busy schedule.
  • Discuss your running journey: We’ll chat about your experience, goals, and any challenges you’re facing.
  • Gain new insights: You may be surprised by questions that help you see your training from a fresh perspective.
  • Set clear targets: We’ll work together to define your specific goals and motivations.
  • Explore coaching options: We’ll discuss how personalized coaching can help you bridge the gap between where you are and your dream. This is entirely optional, and the focus is on understanding your needs and goals.
  • Professional feedback: You’ll receive expert advice tailored to your situation, even if you don’t decide to work with me.
  • Session summary: I’ll send you a recap of our conversation, outlining key points and next steps.

By the end of the session, you’ll have a clearer roadmap for achieving your marathon goals and a better understanding of how coaching can help you get there.

The decision to pursue coaching is entirely yours, and I’m here to support you regardless of your choice.

The differences you get with Running with Life Holistic Marathon Coaching are:

  • A unique Holistic Marathon Coaching Method: You get the benefits of more comprehensive coaching so you can increase your chances of success.
  • Specialization in Your Goal: Instead of coaches who try to coach everyone in everything, holistic marathon coaching helps marathoners overcome the same problems you face more frequently so you get the experience you need to help you reach your goal.
  • Training That Makes Sense For You: While many untrained people think they can coach simply because they run or do it as a part-time gig, you also benefit from a professional coach with training and experience in multiple forms of coaching, so you can get specific marathon coaching and training that makes sense for you. 
  • Familiar with Your Experience: a coach who has only known life as an elite athlete, is in a younger age range, or is of a different gender may not fully understand your struggles; instead, you can get a coach who understands YOU.
  • Personalized Experience: Instead of an app, AI, static plan, or generic coach, you get a holistic blend of the art and science of you and what counts outside your running with your training  – so you get marathon coaching that better prevents injury and maximizes your results. 
  • You can get additional customized coaching if you need help with other issues that you feel are affecting your performance, such as coaching to develop/fine-tune a performance mindset, weight loss coaching, or fueling and nutrition coaching from a Registered Sports Dietitian, so you can truly be the best you can be.

Because, unlike an app, a real coach cannot handle unlimited clients, there tend to be limited roster slots available – so you can find out about available spaces in your free strategy session.

The Holistic Marathon Program is designed to Holistically Transform You and Your running to make you the best you can be. 

  • I developed the Program from 30 years of experience with running, training, and coaching clients to success.
  • The Holistic Marathon Program helps you understand the essential elements impacting your performance and build a bridge from where you are now to your goal.

    While other running coaches are trained to look solely at running, that leaves much of your performance on the table since that’s not the only factor.

    Instead, I developed the Program to consider the Five Elements of Holistic Running Transformation: your Training, Recovery, Fueling, Mindset, and the Essentials so you can fully reach your full potential in running AND thrive!

While most research on running performance is based on younger runners, this program goes beyond traditional coaching by considering that we may evolve in our training needs throughout our lifetimes.

We take into account your fitness level, training age, lifestyle choices, sleep, nutrition, and mindset to create a personalized plan that adapts to your changing needs.

This holistic approach optimizes your training, recovery, and overall well-being, helping you thrive in your running journey and reach your marathon goals feeling great, regardless of where you are in your life’s journey.

It’s completely normal to feel nervous about speaking to a professional running coach for the first time. Many runners experience similar anxieties, such as:

  • Feeling like their current pace or fitness level isn’t good enough.
  • Being worried they won’t have anything valuable to contribute to the conversation.
  • Wondering if the coach will judge their experience or goals.
  • Feeling unsure about what a coaching relationship entails.

However, the Running with Life Program coaches are here to support you at every step of your running journey to take on your epic marathon challenges anywhere in the world.

During your initial consultation, we’ll create a comfortable and open environment where you can discuss your goals, concerns, and any questions you might have.


I believe your result relies more holistically not only on your level but on your visionmindset, and consistency

“Hard work beats talent when talent don’t work hard.” -Tim Notke, basketball coach 

If you dream of running Boston but feel far from that, that’s fine; I’ve helped runners like you reach Boylston St. 

If you read that you can run a marathon on Mt. Kilimanjaro and now think it would be cool to do – I like your style. Let’s do it because I can help you.  

While it doesn’t happen overnight, people have done these things, and so can you. You need the correct map to get there, and I’m like your GPS for these types of dreams.

You don’t need a lot of running experience, just that you are serious about your goal (i.e., this isn’t for you if you signed up for a race at the last minute without any training or do not know if you can commit to the time or effort to train for the race.)

It’s also okay if you’ve been training and want someone to fine-tune your plan. 

Runners that get top results tend to be consistent and enjoy running (or at least did enjoy it before – some people talk to me after they burned themselves out). 

Since there are many factors involved, it’s hard to know how many weeks it would take until we know more about your situation from the complimentary strategy session.

Training time depends on your training history and schedule, what else you have in your life right now, and how much you want to run or cross-train.

If you’ve been out of running for a while, it will naturally take longer to build up to your goal.

Yes, I can help driven runners achieve their race goals, especially those seeking:

  • To push their limits in a challenging race.
  • To prepare for a destination race.
  • To build a strong foundation for future marathon training.

My coaching programs are designed to adapt to your individual needs and experience, ensuring you have the support and guidance you need to reach the finish line feeling strong and accomplished.

Let me know more about your goals, and I’ll be happy to discuss how I can help you achieve them!

Your initial call is free with no obligation.

Plus, you can try out personal coaching with a 30-day money-back guarantee or go month-to-month with no requirement to continue.
