Why Harrier and Hounds?

It's YOUR journey, but let's share some miles

Distance running can be tough! As crazy as it sounds, our sport is used as other sports' punishment. But, with a smart, focused, and flexible training plan, distance running can be fun, rewarding, and something you can enjoy for a lifetime.

Throughout the 20+ years I've been running, I've raced every distance from the mile on the track to 100-mile trail races. My main focus and love lies in racing ultramarathons; however, I very much enjoy road racing, mountain running, and canicross (running with your dog!).  I'm an "any surface, any distance" sort of runner, so chances are I've trained for a race that is similar to your goal race!  With personalized one-on-one coaching, I'll provide you with weekly training guides, extensive feedback, and a chance to adjust training plans on the fly to suit your life and goals. We'll discuss mental preparation, nutrition/hydration, injury prevention, and race strategies along the way. There's no one right way to get to the starting line, but I want to make sure you get there healthy, excited, and prepared for whatever challenge you decide to take on!

 

Everyone's journey is different. As a coach, I want to help you along your path by creating a personalized program for you to reach your goals. I'm just as excited to work with new runners looking for structure and accountability as I am to work with seasoned athletes striving for new personal records.
