Why is a running coach a smart addition to your life?
It’s quite simple really. Working with a running coach ensures greater success towards your running goals. Confidently sign up for any race knowing that you have a real person with actual running experience by your side. Your coach is well equipped to answer questions and guide you through all of your training phases. Your coach is available to talk to, email with and even meet in person (depending on which plan you choose). Your running coach will create a plan that fits your life. We’ll build the plan weekly, knowing your work schedule, your lifestyle challenges, how much time you can devote to running and can make modifications for those last minute travel plans or for when you or the kids get sick. Having support increases the likelihood that you’ll stay focused, healthy and injury free. You’ll learn a lot. You’ll have fun. You’ll kick ass!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Coach Erin’s running philosophy?
Everyone should be able to feel the ground under them while being confident that they can move quickly over any terrain without injury. Coach’s least favorite thing to hear is “I ran a marathon/half marathon/ultra/etc and I’ll NEVER DO THAT AGAIN”. That really sucks. We can help you enjoy your run. Really! You could actually like running.
Who can benefit from having a personal running coach?
Everyone can benefit from working with a running coach! Think accountability, safety and success! A coach can get you to your event/race injury free and help you finish your event with a smile on your face. A great coach can teach you a lot so that you don’t need them all the time.
Can you help me with my running gait/form?
Yes, we can! Your running gait is a mix of your overall movement with dysfunctions included. A dysfunctional movement pattern creates really bad running form. Really bad running form increases your chance of injury, can make you tired faster and can make you hate running. Choose the Slightly Tapped program to work on improving your gait.
“Erin always cared and kept me accountable. For my 50K, at least half of what Erin integrated into my training program (I'm talking strength, recovery, nutrition, understanding of ancillary exercises, awareness, safety of specific trails!) were all brand new to me. That was incredibly valuable. She is also very accessible as a remote coach…” - Melissa; NYC Marathon 2018; Cool 50k Ultra-Marathon 2018)
“I've never thought of myself as a runner. Up until 6 months ago, I had never comfortably run more than 3 miles. With Erin's encouragement, I decided to sign up for a half marathon. Erin supported me so much through the training process and even taught me that running can be fun when done right! “ - Christine
“I was so impressed. Eringave me a bullet proof plan to get in shape, get trained, and get competitive in 10 weeks. The plan was adaptive, combining stretching, distance, hill work, recovery growing with each week.” - Jason
