Brooksie Way Training Program Director

My very first half marathon was The Brooksie Way. Before that, the furthest I had ever run was a 10k. I considered myself a “casual runner,” going for a 3-6 mile run a few times a week just for exercise. When I signed up for the Brooksie Training Program, I went ALL IN. Not only did I sign up for the program, but I agreed to be a Group Leader. That may sound a little crazy, but I thought what better way to hold myself accountable than to help others with the same goal.

Six years and dozens of races later, I can say I am no longer a casual runner. I love the sport of running, the camaraderie with fellow runners and the “runners high” you get before the start of a race and as you sprint to the finish. Even better is when you get to witness new runners experience this feeling for the first time.   

What better way to reach your next goal than by surrounding yourself with others who share the same common goal? As the Training Program Coordinator, I will support and assist you in crossing that finish line. This is your race, at your pace. Let’s have fun doing it!
