Why you wanted to become a coach-I’ve always been a coach and teacher and love to share my passion with others. I like to take the beginner and see them progress through consistent effort.
Favorite runner– Meb, Pre, Galen, Shalane, and that runner who gives it their all everytime!
Favorite quote- “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” -Pre
Why it’s important to train with a coach– Sometimes it’s hard to be objective about your own training. A coach takes the guesswork out and can help you train efficiently. Although I am a coach, I have my own running coach as well!
Other hobbies– Reading and watching crime shows
Family/pets– Will-hubby, and my princess Gabby girl (Maltese-forever puppy)
Favorite race– Disney Marathon
Hardest part of training– Working on my mental game and speedwork
Etc-. I love Disney, Mickey Mouse, goats, and running shoes. I worked 21 years as a Bible teacher/ministry outreach director and now am fortunate to have a 2nd career at Black Dog Running I am just as passionate about!
