Melinda right after her first time achieving 5 miles!

“As a new runner, (and I mean, I have never run more than .2 miles in my 36 years of life), I felt clueless and intimidated. Michele has been able to relieve all that anxiety with her ability to answer all the questions – including the ones I didn’t know to ask. From how much to run per day / week to avoid injury and burnout, to the absolute necessity of a foam roller and how to effectively use one, Michele’s remote coaching took all of the guesswork out of the game so I could purely focus on building on my skill. When I first started out, my initial goal was to get to 3 miles, and it went so well that I was able to build to 7 miles over a period of a few short months. Michele is extremely motivating, a genuine cheerleader and wonderfully empathetic. She has made my journey as a runner extremely enjoyable and I am so thankful to her!” –Melinda Utt


Tina recently achieved her highest mileage month of 186.5 miles!

“I have always called myself a hiker who dabbles in running but Michele is changing all that for me. I have goals that include ultras and I had no clue what I was doing. I essentially mashed together a few online training plans to fit my schedule but didn’t know if it was sufficient. Michele has taken all the guesswork out of the equation and even has me doing workouts that I shunned in the past (like speed work). I am incredibly slow but Michele is ALWAYS encouraging and motivational. I believe she is changing my life. She is an excellent coach and a RAD human being.” –Tina Fernando
