About Marcia

I ran club track as a kid, then ran cross-country and track during high school. I started running as an adult when my daughter asked me to help her train for cross-country her freshman year of high school. Ten years later I have moved from road races to trails and ultrarunning and found a new appreciation of what my body can accomplish. I train on my own for the most part; I really enjoy early morning runs while the world is asleep. Competing in races is fun, as I like to see my training plan complete when I cross the finish line.

Coaching Philosophy

1. Have fun.
2. You're never too old to go outside for a run/hike.
3. Learn to appreciate how strong your body is.
