What We Do

Run Long ~ Run Strong Endurance Coaching provides science based training for endurance runners of all abilities, while focusing on master and grandmaster runners, new runners, and late bloomers, using online delivery of training plans and progress checks via data analysis and other virtual platforms.

Coach Faith understands the unique challenges of this target market in ways that many other coaches may not. She started running late in life, when she was in her late 40s, and has been running less than 10 years. While most coaches who have run all their lives and have extensive resumes get great results from their clients, Coach Faith can provide a more applicable and contemporary approach to mature and beginner athletes who are looking to improve their running experience.

Improve your performance without wasting time.

Testimonials

  • Faith has been extremely encouraging and awesome through my running journey. She knows when to be encouraging and when to tell you to suck it up. I have run farther and happier with her coaching.

    Maria R., runner
  • Coach Faith built a plan that met my needs, schedule, and goals. She communicated with me regularly and was as invested in my success as I was. She was with me every single step of the way, encouraging me.

    Samantha G., ultra runner, marathoner
  • Faith is so very encouraging and enjoyable to spend time with that you might not realize what great running knowledge she possesses, until you find yourself accomplishing running goals you had only dreamed about. I recommend her coaching to any runner, from beginner to ultra distance runner.

    Neal B., runner
