Site icon Bun on the Run


I bring two decades of running and hiking experience to coaching. As a professional and collegiate runner, I was able to experience varied coaching methods and styles. Each athlete has their own unique needs and goals, and I work to help motivated people reach their outdoor athletic potential.

Whether you are training for your first 5k race, want to qualify for the Boston marathon, climb a 14er, or simply increase your fitness in a busy life, I am excited to work with you to develop an individual training plan to help you toward your goals.

How it works

Based on a discussion of your running history and goals, I work to develop short- and long-term training plans that are focused and builds upon your current fitness. We communicate electronically or in person, and I adapt your personalized online training plan according to how your fitness is progressing. Training is delivered via the Training Peaks platform.

Coaching Options

  1. A one-time consultation (electronic or in-person) where I tailor-make a training plan for a specific race or fitness goal.
  2. Personalized training conducted electronically via email and online training software. This option involves ongoing dialogue, discussion, and adaptation of training plan as we progress to a specific race or ongoing fitness goals.
  3. In-person coaching. For those in the Albuquerque or northern-New Mexico region, I can arrange regular or key-workout personal coaching instances. 

Coaching is a two-way street: you bring your goals, determination, and enthusiasm, and I bring the training plan and running & racing experience.

My Running and Hiking Experience

My background as a collegiate runner at the University of Oregon, a post-collegiate marathoner for Brooks Running, two-time Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier, and mom of three young children gives me a unique and realistic perspectives on managing high-level athletics, an active professional life, and a full family life.

I work with athletes of all abilities: walkers, joggers, and runners who have goals ranging from gaining general fitness to running a first 5k, trail racing, and Boston Marathon or Olympic Trials marathon qualifying time goals.  I am glad to bring my unique and diverse running and hiking experience to coaching athletes around the world.

Hiking/Mountain Activity Coaching

Whether you are looking to hike the tallest peaks, long treks/through hikes, summit multiple mountains, or simply increase your resiliency in your local foothills, I provide coaching for hikers.

An experienced backpacker, hiker, and camper, I understand the demands a hiker or mountaineer puts on their body and know how to tailor conditioning, strength, and mobility work for each athlete’s goals.
