About Ashley

I’m an elementary school teacher and reading specialist based in Connecticut. Since getting hooked on trail running in 2017, I’ve run every kind of race from 24-hour relays to ultramarathons. If you’re looking for a coach who believes in your potential, respects that running is always balanced with life, and will fully support your long term goals… let’s talk!

Coaching Philosophy

I believe that building endurance requires patience and consistency. As a coach, I want to help you find the balance between life and training that will allow you to be a life-long athlete. In my programming every run has a purpose. The cornerstone of my training plans are easy-effort runs, but speed workouts have an important place as well regardless of your goal distance. Training should always be balanced with recovery and solid nutrition. I think that it's possible to train hard, and still find joy in the training process. Most importantly, I believe that you deserve to dig into your passion, find out what you're capable of, and do it all with a partner by your side.
