Personalized Run Coaching
Finish line focused training for athletes of all levels with varied race distance goals.
It has been my pleasure to successfully coach athletes across a multitude of finish lines for over 10 years. The training distances range from a 5K to beyond 100 Miles. It doesn't matter if you have never run a single step, you want to PR (personal record) or are looking to expand you distance; I can create a training plan for you.
My vision is simple and the training plans are manageable. I will work with you on making sure that you are able to obtain your goal while working around your crazy busy life.
I am not going to make you do something that I have not done myself. At this point I have completed well over 100 marathon/ultra distance events. Some of my more notable finishes include:
Marathons: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Catalina
Ultra Distances: Badwater 135 (3 times), Western States Endurance Run 100, Leadville Trail 100, HURT 100, Wasatch 100 and the Mt. Gaoligong 104 in China.
I have also completed the Grand Slam of Ultra Running in 2016.
Training for your next race requires a belief system in yourself that is stronger than anyone else has for you. We will work together on body and mind. Let's work together on finding ways to get your head in check so that you can reach new heights!

"You will never meet anyone as passionate and enthusiastic about helping you succeed as Andrea!
I came to Andrea for help with competing in my first 100 mile race. She made me a training plan that worked around my crazy, hectic life as a mother of two who also works full time.
She regularly checked in with me to see how my training was going and was always ther to answer my many, many questions.
In the end I was able to complete my first 100 mile race because I was preparred both physically and mentally.
Thank you so much Andrea!!!
