"To give anything less then your best is to sacrifice the gift."

ABOUT ME

Running is more than moving your feet faster. It is about challenging yourself. It is about finding yourself and what you are capable of. Ken Chlouber the founder of Leadville 100 said it best, “You are better than you think you are. You can do more than you think you can.”

 

I have gone through a personal journey with running myself. It started off challenging kids on the playground to a race and has progressed to competing in 100 mile ultra-marathons. To that end, I am committed to use my knowledge and experiences in running to inspire and ultimately have you achieve your goal.​

AURELIA

I have been wanting to run a marathon for a long time now. I had even begun training programs multiple times to tackle the 26.2 miles but never succeeded until I arrived at Wallace Running.

 

the process

There is nothing we can’t tackle whether it be running your first 5k or achieve a personal record at a marathon. You will receive an optimized training plan that is customized for you. 

The process starts with an assessment on where you are today and where you want to be. Then an individualized training plan will be constructed to achieve your goal. From there, it’s your commitment and my support to unleash your potential. Simple.

You are being coached from a certified running coach through Road Runners Club of America and a certified RYT-200 yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance. 

Wallace Running is based in Grand Rapids, MI. Nevertheless, coaching can be done remotely.
