Mandie V's profile picture

“I’ve been working with Emily for a specialized marathon training program. I’m especially thankful for her variation in workouts. Training on my own, I had just been doing long run after long run, leading to burnout. But she’s been able to provide me with workouts that improve my endurance without fatigue and crashing. The best part is having a support system to motivate me through the long runs.”

Gary M's profile picture

“Before 5k training, I was never sure of my form and I always died out halfway through runs. The confidence-building workouts were a game-changer, helping me overcome mental barriers and push through challenging moments. Coach Emily provided constructive feedback and drills to improve my running technique.”

“I recently completed Coach Emily's 10k training program, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Her emphasis on form, confidence, pacing, recovery, and endurance truly sets this program apart. I can't recommend this program enough for anyone looking to not only complete a 10k, but feel good doing it!”

John S's profile picture

“I’ve been running for 3 years and have done 5k’s and 10k’s, but actually getting coached for my first half marathon was a great choice. All my questions from shoe choice to why my stomach hurt on long runs were answered and I came out a better athlete overall.”
