About Darcy

I've been running since grade school, mostly short distance. Growing up in a rural area with a small school, I didn't get a lot of attention from the coaches since I really wasn't very talented. I've used this experience as a guide for my career and now seek out those in a similar boat. I find more joy helping the "underdog" discover their ability, and I use this "underdog" mentality in my own training now! I'm currently working on lowering my own 5k PR (currently 22:52, 7:22/mi).

Coaching Philosophy

Coaching is a two-way street, always. I may suggest something, but you are 100% in charge. I have science on my end to help guide what we might do, but you have the internal expertise to decide what we do. Let's learn together, blending science + your body and mind, and let's see what you can accomplish! In the end, the goal is to love running and love pushing yourself so you can maintain a healthy relationship with running as long as you desire.
