"Trista helped coach me through my first half marathon.  I had tried training for one in the past but was all over on mileage and cross training and ended up injuring myself.

Throughout the training program, Trista was available to hear about my progress and areas that I was struggling with. She listened to my feedback and helped make minor adjustments to the plan when I was having a bad week. 
On race day, I was able to run the entire half at my goal pace.  I did not have to stop to walk at any point and I never hit a wall.  I am so glad for Trista‚Äôs training plan because I had the mental and physical toughness to get through the half.  As someone who could barely run a mile a few years ago, this was a true triumph in my running journey.  Now on to a full!!!"


"I cannot thank you enough for your support and expertise over the past several weeks.  The running plan you provided was so customized and effective!  You were able to take into account my fitness level, goals and time commitment for a personalized plan.  As a beginner runner, your plan was so important.  It truly helped me complete my first half marathon within my goal running time."


"Can't wait to get started, you've helped me come to enjoy running. You're the best!"
