Head Coach Faith Raymond

Coach Faith began running in 2011 in order to run a benefit 5k for the tornado relief fund for her hometown of Monson, Massachusetts, USA. She followed the usual path from 5ks to half marathons to marathons. Along the way she discovered her love for trail running, fulfilling her sense of adventure. Over the next few years she participated in several 50ks, 50 milers, three 100ks (including a 97 min PR), and her first 100 miler (2017). While she still runs road races, her heart belongs to ultras.

In her running career, Coach Faith has been blessed to meet and run with some amazing athletes. She’s been encouraged by Deena Kastor, inspired by Colleen Alexander, and coached by Amby Burfoot. She has run races alongside Jeff Galloway and in the footsteps of Bill Rodgers and has shared trails with Hal Koerner and Amy Rusiecki.  She has used these opportunities to learn from her idols and continues to seek out new ways to implement their advice.

Coach Faith is involved in the running community and gives back whenever she can. She serves as a guide for Achilles CT, raises funds for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, and leads pace groups for local races. She volunteers at several ultras each year, enjoying the camaraderie and watching others live out their dream races.

A scientist by training, Coach Faith earned an A.S. in Liberal Arts and Science from Manchester Community College in 2010, her B.S. in Marine Science from UCONN at Avery Point in 2013, and her M.S. in Oceanography from UCONN in 2015.  She followed that with her running coach certification from United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy in 2018. She then went on to get her PN1 nutrition coach certification through Precision Nutrition in 2019 and completed the “Women Are Not Small Men” and “Menopause for Athletes” courses with Dr Stacy Sims in 2020.

Coach Chandra turned 40 and ran her first Half Marathon in 2011 after becoming an accidental runner the previous year. Since then, she has run numerous half marathons and is now stretching that distance out on the trails. She started working with a running coach in 2019 and it fundamentally changed her world! Now, she wants to help clients have the same experience.

Coach Chandra stays engaged in learning more about running and the human body through podcasts, magazines, and online articles. She reads books and is not afraid to roll up her sleeves to read the research when details are needed. She has completed the “Women are Not Small Men Course” with Dr. Stacy Sims and she is certified by the United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy (UESCA) as a Running Coach and an Ultrarunning Coach.

Coach Chandra is a faculty member in STEM Education at UMass Dartmouth by day. She earned her Ph.D. in Instructional Systems Technology from Indiana University in 1999.
