“Coach Amy’s speed and hill work sessions challenge every class of runner and is one of our favorite workouts...

As a running couple, we are on different ends of the spectrum.  One of us runs at their own pace and is motivated by food and friends, while the other runs at the front of the pack and is motivated by PR’s and placing.  Even with our different styles and goals, Roadrunners has satisfied both of our very separate needs for the last seven years.  The Saturday long runs allow us to challenge ourselves, or run with friends.  During the week, the Tuesday workouts and tacos have become somewhat of a family tradition.  Coach Amy’s speed and hill work sessions challenge every class of runner and is one of our favorite workouts.  It’s a great opportunity for our kids to see their parents sweat and even sweat a little themselves.”

“The RRKC run group has been so welcoming and supportive. They even have fun outside of workouts.

I used to run by myself and use on-line training schedules I found online. When I signed up for my first marathon I thought it was time to find a group and get some interactive training and coaching.

I first met Coach Amy when she treated me for physical therapy of Plantar Fasciitis using Active Release Technique, just in the nick of time to start to start training for my first marathon. Amy worked up a conservative training plan that took into account my current fitness, miles and injury.

The RRKC run group has been so welcoming and supportive. They have fun even outside of workouts. The long runs are the best; new routes all over the metro and robust aid stations every two miles. Prior to this I really only had one very long route so I’ve thoroughly enjoyed running in so many new places. While speed sessions are tough, I feel like this was a missing link in my training. I feel like I’ve come so far in the 2 1/2 months since I’ve joined RRKC.”

“RRKC has helped me reach goals and do things in running and other sports that I never thought possible!

Before I joined RRKC, I struggled to train consistently, battled injuries, and couldn't find my community of people that made me fall in love with running in the first place. RRKC has changed all of that for me. I train more consistently, have kept injuries at bay, and because of that managed to get faster, all while making great friends!

RRKC has helped me reach goals and do things in running and other sports that I never thought possible! And there is always brunch after Saturday runs - who doesn't love a good brunch? :)”

Jen safely returns to triathlons

“I recommend Coach Amy to anyone who has struggled with injury or wants to improve their running.

Coach Amy helped me go from injury to running marathons and triathlons again. I became injured after increasing volume too fast and was off running for months. It took me a while to find someone that directed me to build strength specific for running. She understands the injury I have and is helping me to build into running faster at longer distances.

Coach Amy is also helping me to safely return to triathlons. She understands how to build in a slow and lasting way so I can enjoy being active for years to come. I recommend Coach Amy to anyone who has struggled with injury or wants to improve their running. She is the best!”
