About Faith

I began running in 2011 in order to run a benefit 5k for the tornado relief fund for my hometown. I followed the usual path from 5ks to half marathons to marathons. Along the way I discovered my love for trail running and have completed many 50ks, 50 milers, 100ks and 100 milers. While I still runs road races, my heart belongs to ultras.

A scientist by training, I have a masters' degree in Oceanography from UCONN. I found UESCA's science based coaching to complement my data driven background. I followed that with certs in nutrition, strength and conditioning, and women-specific coaching.

Coaching Philosophy

Run Long ~ Run Strong imparts science-based training plans, works with runners to maximize their training and adapt each plan to meet the individual athlete’s unique situation. From strength training, injury prevention, nutrition, and cross-training, we cover all the bases for each runner’s needs. Run Long ~ Run Strong takes time to teach the “why” behind customized training plans, nutrition guidance, and cross-training. We recognize that women have different physical and nutritional needs than men to reach their maximum potential and we take that into account when creating training plans.
