Coaching

Michelle has been running for over 25 years and competing in ultra-distances since 2011.  She has raced 100 Milers on a variety of  terrains - road, trails, mountains and even on a 400 m track. In 2020, she was introduced to Fastest Known Times (FKT).  Now her training focuses on adventures where she can put on a pair of sneakers and carry all her supplies in her pack and go for a nice long solo run.

Michelle has worked with a coach for many years and values their guidance, support, and accountability. She has learnt that an athlete must get to the start line mentally and physically healthy – not injured or burnt out. She believes communication is important in creating a training plan that balances the athletes personal/work life and allows them to be consistent in their training.
