To work with runners and adventurers of all levels that need either a cheerleader, an accountability partner, someone to take the guesswork out of their week or all of the above! If you are just getting started and are feeling a little intimidated or if you’ve been running for awhile but want to explore your full potential; nothing would make me happier than to be there providing encouragement with the hands on knowledge I’ve accumulated over the years coupled with a little science to provide a comfortable space for others where they feel like they can do what they have been dreaming about. I am not an elite runner so the focus of my coaching will not be to “just get fast” (although, getting faster will be a nice fun side effect of implementing workouts and dedication). If you feel like you could use some help in your road/trail running or hiking/mountain adventuring, email me for more information and we can have a conversation to see if I would be the right fit for you!
My Coaching Style
What I will bring to the table is excitement and encouragement for your journey, judgement free zone for any questions involving anything running/adventuring related, positivity and realism for your goal setting and growing together as a team. I won’t always have the answers but if its something I can find for you, I will give it my all to do so! I have experience with road running, which is what I started out with, trail/ultra running and high alpine mountain adventuring. Even though I choose and love to do the longer distances, I in no way expect that is what my athletes want to end up doing and would never pressure them to feel they would need to ever make that their goal. If you wanna train for a 5k, that’s great…I am so excited to help you get to where YOU want to go! If you would like some more information about me personally, visit the Meet MissShellShock page of this site and/or read some of my past blog posts. I am not a perfect athlete myself (no one is) therefore I would never expect that from any of the athletes I coach.

Email me and let’s start the conversation on whether I would be a good fit for you!
Need a crew member and/or pacer for an upcoming adventure or race? I have personally crewed for 10+ races with half of those including 100 milers. I run ultras and spend large amounts of time on my feet myself so I intuitively know what someone might need when they come through an aid station. I also have a vehicle that can get me over high clearance roads and am very good at organizing getting to places on time.
How would this work?
Send a request to MissShellShockCoaching@gmail.com to see if I have the availability for your adventure/race. Give me as much details as possible as far as date, how many days you would need me for, location, etc.
I would review your request and see if I have the time available and set up a time to chat for more details and finalize the request.
Simply sending a request does not meant that I will have the time available and every request will need to be discussed on a case by case basis as these types of events can take large chunks of time out of a schedule.
$100/per day + cost of travel/boarding (gas, hotel, flight, etc)
$50 nonrefundable deposit is required at the time of official booking. (You can cancel with me anytime leading up to the event, however the deposit will be retained by me as I will be booking time out of my schedule and planning on being there for your race/adventure which will be disrupted if you end up cancelling with me.)
