If your goal is to set a new PR then I can help you.  As a RRCA Certified Coach, I can custom design a program to help you run your best and set a PR or break a previously set PR.  

Whether your goal is run your first 1/2 / full marathon or to run a fast 5k or 10k, let me help you with a customized training program to get you to your goal safely and have fun along the way. 

Through periodized training programs designed just for you, I guarantee you will be able to break through the barriers to enhancing your speed or distance.  

As your coach, I will hold you accountable, help you through the mental challenges and help keep you focused throughout the training program.  

You'll emerge on the other side of the training program with the knowledge, skills and ability to continue to improve even after our program ends.
