Are you looking for a running coach to help you run as you envision?
Maybe your marathon pace is too slow, you struggle through the last part of your race, or you’re sick of training problems or injuries.
I get it because overcoming these obstacles inspired me to become a running coach to help runners like you avoid the time, effort, and mistakes I made to succeed.
The Faster Marathon Program uniquely combines expert run coaching, professional holistic coaching, and decades of experience to help you prevent injuries and struggles and enables you to run faster with less effort and feel amazing.
Sign up for a free strategy session to discover if you can join the many I’ve helped holistically transform to run their dream race so you can get your best running experience.
I’m Amie Dworecki, BS, MA, MBA, a “Type-A” multi-certified coach, running fanatic, a small business owner, and caretaker to my 85-year-old Mom.
I started my company to help transform runners so that they can reach massive marathon and ultrarunning goals and feel empowered and successful.
Frustrated from having to stop running from another injury, I developed a holistic method that helped me return to running in top condition, qualify for the Boston Marathon multiple times (when everyone else said I couldn’t), and train for a sub-3-hour marathon in my 40s – all while staying injury-free.
I’ve been featured in Runner’s World, Women’s Running and Ultrarunning Magazines, Nike.com, and Trail Runner because I know how to help prevent injuries and mistakes, get into top physical and mental condition, and truly improve running.
When I’m not coaching, running, or assisting my Mom, you can find me in my places of Zen – running out on long country roads or trails with my dog, Cody, having a relaxing moment with a cat (or they are forcing me to…), or in my organic garden.
Here’s precisely what you can expect when you set up a call:

I’ll also send an outline of your strategy session, so you’ll have it summarized by a professional coach, which will be valuable to you so you can easily see what is happening.
The differences you get with Running with Life Holistic Marathon Coaching are:
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 Faster Marathon Program is designed to Holistically Transform You and Your running to make you the best you can be.
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!
Most studies on how runners respond to training and injury prevention have been done on college-aged male athletes in their early 20s.
So much of what is published about run training, which traditional running coaches follow, is based upon this information.
But, as we age, a strategy that works for someone in their early 20s would fail due to a different need for sleep, a different timeframe for the best recovery response, and the total training load you can handle before your body breaks down.
The body handles external stress from work and life differently as well.
And new research increasingly shows that women also cannot train the same as men.
So those of us who are not 20-year-old male athletes are helped by a different, more holistic transformational approach to training, recovery, fueling/nutrition, mindset, and the lifestyle essentials that help you and your running thrive.
With online coaching, you can access your training plans, workouts, and coach from anywhere via email, an app, phone, or Zoom, so you don’t have to go to a gym or any location to get in your training.
Unlike some coaches, I am okay if you need to do workouts at home/on a treadmill, push a stroller, repeat specific locations, or do what you need to do to get things done.
You have different options for the type of coaching you can get, depending on your needs holistically.
It is an easy, step-by-step process to set everything up and start.
Schedule a no-obligation free strategy session to learn more; you can get a money-back guarantee if you decide coaching is not for you.
Unlike other places that judge based on your pace, there is no judgment here.
Holistic Coaching accommodates runners of all levels who want to take on their epic marathon and ultramarathon challenges anywhere in the world.
I believe your result relies more holistically not only on your level but on your vision, mindset, and consistency:
“Hard work beats talent when talent don’t work hard.” -Tim Notke, basketball coach
If you have a dream of running Boston but feel far from that, that’s fine; I’ve helped runners like you reach Boylston St.
If your longest run has been 3.5 miles, but you envision yourself going 350 (like the Alaskan Iditarod footrace), that’s fine too – and you don’t want to go super fast for that anyway.
If you read that you can run 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.
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
― Lao Tzu
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.
I have helped runners serious about their goals be successful in the half-, especially if it’s got an extra challenge, such as a destination race, or they have aspirations of eventually running a marathon or longer event.
Your initial call is free with no obligation.
