I have been training with Amy since February of 2019. As a runner experiencing overuse injuries, my original intent was to cross-train to prevent injury. Amy embraced this and we met to discuss my goals. Amy set up a training plan for me that fit what we discussed. Since Amy is a world class triathlete, she is able to coach athletes in running, swimming, and cycling. My workouts each week include elements of all three. She also helped with nutrition during my workouts and the results for me have been significant. I participated in my first sprint triathlon in September of 2019 and qualified for nationals.
2019 was an awesome racing season for me. I routinely placed in the top 3 in my age group and I experienced PRs in more than one race, including the Ocean State Half marathon. When I first met Amy, my best time for a half marathon was 2 hours 2 minutes and 12 seconds. In the Ocean State Half Marathon, in October of 2019, I finished in 1 hour, 50 minutes, and 44 seconds, second in my age group, just two weeks after placing first in my age group in the Newport Half Marathon.
Amy has helped me develop as an endurance athlete. She has been there for me in the ups and downs of training and just life in general. She is open to training athletes of all ages, from teenagers, to young adults in their 20’s and 30’s, to athletes in their 80’s. She works with athletes to establish meaningful goals and is supportive both emotionally and in her physical presence. She has made a world of difference in my life.
