Amy is our Training Programs Coordinator and a certified RRCA running coach. Over the course of her two years at Fleet Feet, she has had the opportunity to coach each of our 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon groups. She began running about eight years ago and quickly discovered her love of running and sharing that joy and knowledge with others! She has experience racing in the 5k, 10k, 15k, Half Marathon, and Full Marathon distances. She is honored and grateful to have been given this opportunity to help others in our community reach their fitness goals through Fleet Feet’s Training Programs. There is great satisfaction and joy in helping someone else learn something new and achieve a dream or achieve something they did not think was possible. When not at Fleet Feet as a coach or Fit Specialist, Amy stays busy with her husband and five sons.

Em joined the Fleet Feet team to begin gaining more knowledge on running health and lifestyle. She hopes in the future to help meet not only her own running goals, but to help others that she coaches with Fleet Feet meet theirs.
