As the head coach and founder of Apex Running, my goal is to help you become the best runner you can be. If you have been running for a while and feel like you've hit a plateau, or maybe you're ready to take that next step to be a stronger runner, I'm here to help!
My passion for running began in high school and continued though college (running competitively in the 1500) and into adulthood. I have spent years improving my own running and made adjustments to my training as I've gotten older. My interest as a coach began years ago when I felt I could contribute to those around me with my running knowledge.
In addition to coaching I am a competitive masters runner in distances that range from 5k's to marathons and even a handful of ultra's. My desire to know how I can help others more has led me to become an RRCA certified coach and I have also received my WITS certification as a personal trainer to help those I coach be their best.
Training for Greatness
As Coach of the Apex lower mileage runners, I provide effective, un-intimidating workouts, with a social vibe. Our group is accessible to all runners, whether you are new, returning, or just want to run with a group that isn’t running high crazy mileage! I help runners develop consistency, intuitive pacing, and more efficient running form.
I am certified through USATF as a Running Coach, and through WITS (Level 2) as a Personal Trainer. I do home based strength training as well as training at Kilter Fitness. Over the years, I’ve worked with athletes as a trainer, coach, gym rat, runner, friend, teammate, mentor, spouse, pacer, crew, camp director, and a running shoe enabler!
My favorite racing distance is the Half Marathon, followed by the 10k, and apparently I can be talked in to running a Marathon, once a year!
For me, running is it’s own reward, but the connections I have developed with with Apex and the Austin area running community, are what has kept me tethered to this sport for so long. Being part of a team helps get us through the inevitable challenges that running will bring, but most of all it connects us to each other. Join our running family!
