Welcome to Run The Long Road COACHING!
I am so thrilled to unveil my new website, just a few weeks shy of my 3-year blogiversary! I also can’t believe I’ve been blogging for that long…just about running?!
My intention 3 years ago was to have the blog promote my coaching business. I consistently blogged 5 times a week and, over time, I acquired new clients. The more clients I had, the less time I had to blog.
Now that I want to grow my business even more I knew I had to shift the focus of my website to more coaching-centric and less blog-centric. And it definitely needed a makeover to look more professional. It was important for me to keep the blog. I think prospective clients like to read about my training, my PRs, and my failed attempts at PRs. I have always maintained the blog as an honest look at my training – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and I intend on keeping it that way. Speaking of bad and ugly – tomorrow’s post will explain why I haven’t run since December 2nd.
I now have more coaching options, including more options for runners in the Philly area. Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions! Please spread the word if you or anyone you know would like to tackle their first race, make the jump to the marathon, or PR/BQ. As crazy as it sounds I am accepting new clients even with the impending birth of baby RTLR!
You may need to update Feedly, etc. with my new site – runthelongroadcoaching.com – so you continue to receive blog updates. My old site will also automatically redirect you to the new site.
I owe a HUGE thanks to Rita at Blog Genie. This was my second time working with her (the first was when I made the jump to self-hosted). She is amazingly talented and incredibly patient! She literally had the new site up and running in a week! I was terrified I was going to have the baby mid-design (ha ha ha, so naive of me) so I’m grateful to Rita for working quickly. It looks so professional, clean, and simply amazing!
You know, I was kinda worried you were going to have a baby mid design too 🙂 I’m so I glad I was a small part of the journey for you, amazing things are yet to come! One of which is baby pics I can’t wait to see!

Congratulations! This looks amazing and is such a great step for you! Good luck 🙂
The site looks great!
I hope you are feeling well.
There is a new running blogger directory at MilestoBlog.com, in case you want to register for more exposure. They have a FB page and Twitter account as well.. FYI-> You won’t get spam emails like that other site. Grrr.
