Coaching Credentials. . .
I began coaching in 2008, working with Fleet Feet Sports in Rochester, NY to administer their Fleet Feet/No Boundaries Learn to Run Programs. These programs are targeted at new and beginner-level runners who want to run their first 5K or 10K. I coached through more than 10 sessions of this program, working with thousands of aspiring runners to kick-start their new running lives. When relocation to Singapore forced me to leave Fleet Feet in 2012, I began working with individuals as a personal running e-coach. [What is e-coaching?]
As someone who has raced everything from a mile to a marathon, I can tell you that there’s nothing like the thrill of crossing the finish line of a race. Nothing, that is, except helping someone else cross a finish line! I specialize in helping new runners conquer the physiological and psychological barriers standing between them and their first 5K – but I love working with runners of all levels to help them grow stronger, faster, and more confident.
I have completed an accredited coaching course, and am certified as a running coach by the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America). I have clients working toward distance goals, time goals, and health goals – the beauty of personalized coaching is the ability to customize! I specialize in creating a safe, effective, and specific program that is tailored to your fitness level, your goals, and your lifestyle. [Read more about My Coaching Philosophy.] Once your program is designed, I help you stay on-task, motivated, and having fun – while together, we take your fitness level to a new level.
