Whether you’re training for your first 5k, marathon, or anything in between, I can help. I bring 13 years of experience to the table, including nine marathons, an Ironman, and literally hundreds of other races. I’m an RRCA certified coach and can work with you to design a customized training schedule. If you’re local to the Baltimore/DC region, we can work in person. If you’re further afield, I am happy to work with you remotely and still ensure a personalized coaching experience. I look forward to hearing from you!

A few good words from past/current clients:
Just wanted to drop you a line thanking you for all of your good work. When I started with you in June of 2010, I was 55 years old, 60 lb.s overweight, and unable to run consistently without injuring myself. You started me out nice and slow, talked me through some minor injuries, gave me interesting routines that were just challenging enough, and encouraged me every step of the way. By November I was able to complete a 5K with my 10 year old son in 32:30. Not a world record, but very satisfying. I would strongly encourage anyone who wants to get back into running or jogging to follow your program.
Amanda worked with me to help me train for the 2011 Boston marathon. Her weekly workouts were challenging, but never beyond me, and always incorporated, as much as possible, whatever else was going in my life at that time. Having Amanda available for contact for all my questions, doubts and for putting together my racing strategy was invaluable – her extensive experience as an athlete and a coach meant she had credible and considered answers to all of my questions. As an overall experience, being coached by Amanda meant I could focus on my training without having to worry whether I was working hard enough, or too hard – and as a result, I was fully prepared for race day and had the most enjoyable and succesful marathon I have yet run. I would recommend Amanda to anyone seeking to improve not only their race times, but the quality and enjoyment of their training.
