Testimonials

What my clients are saying:

"Christine is an awesome coach - she leads with a steady and calm encouragement that always keeps me going forward, even during those times I've thought I just can't run any farther. She's excellent at listening, and knows just how hard to push to keep her running group heading together in the right direction. I've been lucky enough to have Christine coach me through several classes, and she has somehow managed to make this non-morning person look forward to waking up and running with her at 5am. Even better, she gets results! I've typically run about an 11:00-11:30 pace for the last couple of years.  After doing speed work with her for only 6 weeks, I just ran my first 5K, and I beat my goal to run it in less than 30 minutes, with an average of 9:32 minutes per mile." - long time running student after speed class

"Thank you for your encouragement. I know I definitely would not have survived the 8 mile race without the training you provided." - running student

"I am so appreciative of your constant encouragement and positive attitude." - wellness coaching client

"Saturday I completed my first official half marathon! It was a wonderful experience overall, and I was able to note a few things to make my next race experience even better. It was lonely running without the group, but I stuck to some upbeat songs on my iPod. At mile 6.5, I started to wonder why I was doing this to myself. Between mile 11-12, I began to tear up just a bit...because a year ago I couldn't even imagine completing a 5K; let alone a half marathon. The support and training that you have provided me completely changed my life, and I wouldn't trade in my early mornings with you guys for anything. Thank you for helping me reach my goal; I look forward to continue training and running future marathons!" - running student after first half marathon
