About Us


We believe there is no greater gift than to come alongside someone and believe in them more than they believe in themselves.  By considering each athlete's history, current life schedule and goals, we develop a plan that allows consistency, which we have found is the key to big breakthroughs. Through our experiences, mistakes and successes, we have learned what it takes to continually improve, achieve goals, and chase bigger dreams.  
We believe that in order for an athlete to be successful they have to be passionate and enjoy the journey.
John Maxwell said, "One is too small of a number to achieve greatness." We have had coaches in our lives who have contributed greatly to our development, we have experienced value in coaching each other, and would love the opportunity to do the same for you!

Since no two runners are the same, we create an individualized, holistic training plan for each athlete.  The 1-on-1 coaching plan offers a prescribed running schedule, along with recommendations for strength, flexibility, fueling, and recovery.   We will also help you achieve success by guiding you through the many mental aspect of running. This approach allows for adjustments due to real life and enables you to better incorporate running into your busy schedule.
