Welcome to StrongByStrand!

A Structured, Individualized Plan
 I do not do group training plans. Running plans are NOT one size fits all. When I write a plan, customize it to the following:

  • Training background
  • Current fitness
  • Running goals and upcoming races
  • Work schedule and stress
  • Family priorities

Knowledgeable Coach
There are hundreds of coaches out there on Instagram today. I strive to be a knowledge coach, to set myself apart and to provide you with the best training possible. I’ve read dozens of books, hundreds of peer-reviewed research articles. I study physiology, anatomy, sports psychology, communication, storytelling and other topics, because I believe the best coach is able to train the athlete both physically and mentally and I encourage you to ask me questions – one of my goals is to expand your knowledge of the sport as well!

Guidance through the Ups and Downs of Life

Life happens: illness, injury, pregnancy, travel, busy weeks at work, the inevitable winter weather. I take the guesswork out of how to adapt training to life. If you miss a couple weeks due to illness or injury, I adjust your plan because the goal is the same: to find the optimal balance between training and life. 
I love coaching. I love working with people to achieve their goals, no matter what those goals are. And I would love to work with you.
