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.
- A one-time consultation (electronic or in-person) where I tailor-make a training plan for a specific race or fitness goal.
- 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.
- 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
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.
