Meet Your Ultra Coach

I’m Amie Dworecki, and I understand the struggles of chasing your ultramarathon dreams over 40.

I wasn’t born an elite athlete, so my journey wasn’t easy. I help athletes overcome the obstacles daily – worrying about training, preventing injuries, even a lack of confidence from getting older. 

Through relentless effort, holistic methods, and focusing on what my body COULD do over 40, I tackled tough challenges, from training to conquer a sub-4 hour 50K to qualifying for the Western States 100 and achieving podium finishes in multiple ultras.

Pushing my limits at the Black Canyon Ultra! As your coach, I'll help you achieve your ultramarathon goals.

Trail and Ultra Coaching Success Stories:


Tom went from a self-described "slow and getting slower" to becoming a consistently top finishing ultra racer at age 50:

Thank you very much for getting me here. You have been spot on with adapting/adjusting to me and my running/training style and I could not be here right now without you... the training adjustments and race advice definitely saved me from myself. You are a GREAT COACH!

Faithe Set multiple PRs in her 50's:

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, which was great.

I had very different goals and was able to reach them.

I PR’ed my 1/2, Full Marathon, and 24-hour races!

Bill surpassed what he ever thought was possible in his 60s:

I'm extremely happy having Amie for my coach. I have progressed way more than I could ever have imagined! Trail running has been life-changing for me, and I'm looking forward in anticipation to what the future holds! You will be in excellent hands with Amie! She has the experience, training, and knowledge to help you reach your goal/goals! I would definitely recommend!

While generic plans and apps offer a starting point, Running with Life Ultrarunning Coaching provides a personalized and holistic approach to reach your ultramarathon goals. Here’s how we stand out:

  • Focus on the big picture: We go beyond just the miles you run. We consider your lifestyle, recovery, nutrition, mindset, and overall well-being to create a sustainable training program.
  • Experience that matters: Our coaches specialize in ultramarathon training and understand the unique challenges faced by masters runners.
  • Personalized guidance: We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution. Your training plan is tailored to your specific goals, experience, and needs.

Holistic Ultramarathon Coaching goes beyond just the miles you run. We take a comprehensive approach that addresses five key areas that impact your performance:

  • Training: We design personalized plans that challenge you and help you reach your goals.
  • Recovery: We focus on strategies to optimize your body’s ability to repair and rebuild.
  • Fueling: We help you develop a nutrition plan that supports your training and racing needs.
  • Mindset: We teach you mental toughness and strategies to overcome challenges.
  • Essentials: We address factors like sleep, stress management, and injury prevention.

By focusing on these five elements, we help you become a well-rounded athlete and achieve your full potential, not just on race day, but in all aspects of your life.

As we age, our bodies have different needs than younger athletes. Traditional coaching often relies on research based on younger runners, which may not be as effective for masters runners.

Holistic Ultramarathon Coaching takes this into account by focusing on:

  • Personalized, age-specific training: We understand the importance of recovery, injury prevention, and adjusting training volume to fit your body’s capabilities.
  • Individualized plans: We consider your unique needs, including sleep patterns, stress levels, and potential limitations.
  • Holistic approach: We address not just your running, but also your overall well-being, including nutrition, mindset, and lifestyle factors.

This comprehensive approach helps masters runners train smarter, recover better, and achieve their goals safely and effectively.

Our online coaching offers a flexible and convenient way to train for your ultramarathon, no matter your location. Here’s what you can expect:

  • 24/7 access: Train anytime, anywhere with your personalized plan accessible through our easy-to-use app.

  • Simple setup: Get started quickly and easily with our streamlined process.
  • Free consultation: Schedule a no-obligation strategy session to discuss your needs and learn more about our coaching options.
  • Money-back guarantee: We’re confident in our program and offer a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied.
