Colleen in 2009 ING NYC Marathon

I had never run more than a mile or two before I signed up to run the 2005 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon.  Six years later, I ran 1,000 miles from St. Louis to New York City.  I ran approximately 15.5 miles for 65 consecutive days.  My running journey has taught me that our bodies are capable of the most amazing feats.  Plus, the endorphins are life-changing!

The most thrilling moment in my running journey was when Katie asked me to coach and run alongside her in the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll St. Louis Marathon.  Crossing that finish line hand in hand with my little sister still brings tears to my eyes.

Anyone can be a runner. Sometimes just taking that first step is what deters one from pursuing a dream of completing a 5K, Half Marathon or Marathon.  Guess what?  You don’t have to do it alone!  I would be honored and grateful to help you begin your journey by running or walking alongside you, motivating you to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and keeping you on track to make that dream a reality.  My passion for running & walking, along with the accountability of scheduling sessions with me will get you moving and allow you to finally chase down that dream of crossing the finish line!
