Having only started running 3 years ago, and having never had a running coach before, I was apprehensive to begin coached group training. Even more daunting was the distance : my first 26.2. Perfect Pace was able to take my beginner's pace and formulate a plan that got me through training, 2 half marathons and 2 (!) marathons in ONE race season UNINJURED. Did I mention I shaved 30 min from my previous half marathon time? The group runs were fun and motivating, the guest speakers were informative, and the one-on-one training, feedback, and advice from Flavia and Joe were priceless. -Meredith

I've been racing since high school, and have completed 9 full marathons since 2014, including Boston, New York, and Chicago. Through the years I've been doing all I can to motivate others, so I became an RRCA certified running coach in 2016. I hope to share my years of experience and knowledge to help others become as passionate as I am about running.
