Meet our Coaches

Meet our Coaches, they are a dynamic duo who not only love to coach. In addition, they also love to get out the door and do the work for their own running goals.

She calls upon her experience as a competitive swimmer, Ironman Triathlete and runner to help other runners reach their goals, both big and small. 

Dr. Kate’s passion is to help local runners enjoy the sport of running as much as she does! Her group has a focus on 5km and 10km distances.
