Train RACE REPEAT
Do you love to run? Do you want help to be the best runner you can be? To run a personal best (PB) or personal record (PR) or to try a new event? Do you need help knowing how to maximize your potential? I help you become the runner you want to be! I love working with runners who have goals and who know that hard work, patience and consistency is the key to success.
I believe the foundation of coaching is trust and communication and I work hard to have a relationship with each athlete I coach. As such, I limit the number of athletes I work with at a given time to be able to provide personalized training and responsive communication. I believe that a runner achieves his/her best results when the training is designed specifically to his/her weaknesses, goals, background and schedule. I am also very cognizant of the demands on time and energy in most people's lives and try to maximize efficiency in training. I enjoy working with athletes from around the world - if you have access to email/internet/skype then we are ready to start.
I specialize in working with master track athletes and high school athletes looking to improve their running. I believe in the "Long Term Athlete Development" model which takes into consideration different life stages of an athlete, for example, training for a 16 year old is very different than for a 20 year old. At the same time, training for a 50 year old is also different than training for a 20 year old! I take all these into consideration: age, years running, other sports played, injury history, goals, fitness, and other factors in life that impact running.
As one of my athletes, you will receive a weekly training program via the an online calendar and app (Vdot02.com), as well as regular correspondence via email, text, skype and phone calls. My services are provided as part of the Run SMART Project. Click here or contact me for more information.
Okanagan Athletics Club
For Okanagan based athletes, I encourage you to look into the Okanagan Athletics Club. This full service track group has a middle distance/distance crew of approximately 30 athletes and we are always happy to welcome new members. We meet Monday/Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning throughout most of the year with breaks during the summer and over the winter holidays. I encourage athletes to also pursue other sports and activities so please join us if you are interested in running as a primary or supporting sport!
