About Coach Kelly

As a certified running coach through RRCA, VDOT and completing the Health Mindset Coach certification, I’m so happy to work with runners one on one. I’ve been a runner for 10 years now where a lot of life has happened in between miles. Running was never just a workout for me. It quickly became part of my life and it’s been with me ever since. 


I started my coaching experience back in college when I volunteered for Girls on the Run. After college, I created a foster care youth running program for a local foster care nonprofit. I loved the challenge of creating a running program for all different levels of experience. I was also the head coach of a cross-country running program for two years.


Running has been with me through college, jobs changes, marriage, three pregnancies, postpartum, and more.


My coaching style is very personal because I know how personal running can be to someone’s life. All training programs are individual to you. I care very much about your life along with training because it all works together. Running is not just about getting in training runs. As a coach, I’m here to work with you one on one through your ups and downs. It’s a journey that involves both your mind and body. I’m here to use my knowledge and experience to help you conquer mental barriers along with training your body. 


I will push you to best person and runner you can be. I will cheer you on and lift you up. I will keep you accountable and be your sounding board while helping you strategize ways to conquer your goals. 


I coach all levels of runners - no matter where you are in your running journey, I'm here!
