Lisa’s coaching helped me run a solid first half marathon at age 40. One year later, after continuing to train with her for several more races, I improved my half marathon time by over twelve minutes – a huge PR I wouldn’t have been able to achieve on my own! Lisa’s personalized training programs are written with attention to nuances unique to me as an individual, providing me with a specific purpose for each day’s workout. Thanks to her wisdom and expertise, I have grown as a runner in many areas – strength, stamina, speed, running form, racing strategy – to name a few. Most of all, I’ve fallen in love with the sport of running, and I credit this to Lisa’s excellent coaching.
Lisa was the first coach I had ever hired to help improve my training and performance. It turned out to be the best experience. Lisa took the time to understand where I was physically and what I wanted to achieve. She then tailored a training program to fit my personal needs and made adjustments throughout the training cycle based on my performance and feedback. This was the first time I went through a marathon training cycle without a single injury and without feeling exhausted. I will definitely be using Lisa to help me reach my next set of goals.

I have been working with Lisa for various races over the course of the last year, and she has been the best thing that has happened to my running! I not only feel prepared and confident, but I have also had some PR’s under Lisa’s training programs. Running is one of those things that no one can do FOR you; you have to do it yourself, but having Lisa in the wings for encouragement and a solid, manageable training plan (I work over 50+ hours a week), I have seen a noticeable difference in my overall running, hitting paces that I never expected. I am excited to continue to work with Lisa and see what else I am capable of accomplishing!
Lisa started coaching me when I could hardly run 5k without stopping; she has pushed me to improve, rejoicing with me in every victory and encouraging me after every disappointment. Her training plans and support have helped me become a stronger and more confident runner, prepping me for 5 half-marathons and multiple shorter races. Through Lisa’s expert coaching, I’ve taken 25 minutes off my half-marathon time! Without hesitation, I heartily recommend her services.
I have benefited greatly from Lisa’s training program during the last two years. The simple proof is my qualifying for Boston in my last two Chicago Marathon attempts! I have PR’d in every race category – 5K to Full Marathon — as a result of her programs — and I am 10 years older than when I became dedicated to running. Now I train with a purpose — no more junk miles. Important for me is that the training schedule is setup 4 weeks in advance with a specific day by day plan. I run a business and I need the flexibility to train when I can train. I don’t have the luxury of a set time to run with a group. Lisa’s programs are tied to your individual goals whether you want to simply improve your running, prepare for your first race, or you want to head to Boston.The program works and it will take you from your first day of training to your first step on race day. I have recommended many running friends to Lisa and they have all had great experiences and personal improvements. I am proof positive that Lisa’s training program works!
