Welcome to Run the Long Road Coaching

Welcome to Run the Long Road Coaching

Hi, I'm Kristy, an RRCA-certified running coach and NASM-certified personal trainer, coaching runners of all levels from the 5K to the marathon.

My coaching style is personalized and adaptive – no cookie cutter training plans! The training plan I create will be tailored to your current fitness level and goals.  In addition, I constantly adapt and adjust the plan based on how you are progressing.

If you’re a beginner or seasoned runner, hoping to PR or qualify for Boston, or looking to break through that plateau, I have numerous coaching options for you to choose from.

ODDyssey Half Marathon Recap

I ran the ODDyssey Half Marathon for the second time on Sunday.  Last year I was 10 weeks pregnant.  This year I'm 5 months postpartum.  Same race but 2 very different experiences.

This race is a clusterfuck each year.  A nightmare of crowds and congestion to get there and get home.  Forty thousand runners packed into a small … [Read More...]

Big Plans {revised}

In February I posted about my Big Plans for 2014 and then, 6 weeks later, posted about how running kinda sucks.  I have updates on both fronts…as I'm sure you are on the edge of your seat in anticiptation!
