Exciting day! I still have more amazing running coaches to feature in the Saturday Spotlight. This week’s featured coach is an online “run buddy” I’ve actually met in person and…we even went through our RRCA Certification Class together! She’s a fabulous runner, writer and well, anyone would be lucky to work with her as a coach! Who is she?

What is your coaching style/ philosophy?
What kind of runner are you best able to help?
I see so many runners just plugging along at the same speed every day. I myself have been there before, but it’s just not helpful! Changing up your runs with intervals, new terrain, cross training and fartleks is so important to bettering yourself as a runner. I would love to help everyone learn how to properly push themselves and constantly challenge their bodies. We all need lighter run days, but running with a purpose is what I wish everyone knew how to do.What resources does run coach @superwomankw recommend? Read this Saturday Spotlight and find out!

What is your favorite resource for running?
What piece of advice do you frequently give to runners?
I find myself telling other runners to push themselves and find their inner strength. I am also always telling runners to focus on strengthening their core, planks are great for this.
