More About Coach Ethel

I am USATF Level 1 Track & Field Coach, certified Strength & Conditioning Coach and certified by USTFCCCA in Track & Field Technical Coaching. I am CPR/AED/First Aid certified. I have been a personal running coach for 10 years.

I have over completed 50 marathons and 40 ultra marathons, achieving All American in the marathon in 2007. I was a 2012 finisher of the Badwater Ultramarathon, recognized as "the world's toughest foot race".

We will work together to develop a training plan this fits your current fitness level, time commitment and goals. I am a firm believer in cross training for injury prevention.

Client Reviews

Coach Ethel is a great coach! After one session my son was confident he was going to achieve his running times. We signed up for more sessions immediately. I would recommend Coach Ethel to anyone!

We honestly met Ethel by chance. I looked into a running coach for my daughter and Ethel on coachup was the closest one...things happen for a reason! Unfamiliar with the process and not knowing how my daughter would adapt, I initially requested 1 session. We left that session feeling like we 100% made the right decision. Ethel’s knowledge in running and what my daughter needed was exactly what we were looking for. I requested 10 sessions later that day. My daughter’s confidence level in running is at a new high! Ethel has really exceeded my expectations.

Ethel has been great-- my 14 year old is enjoying it and getting in great shape to get ready for field hockey. We highly recommend Ethel- great for my daughter going into high school

Coach Ethel has been extremely helpful with training properly, and has given me many tips on shoes, nutrition, and things I can do to prevent injury. Looking forward to more sessions!

My daughter loved her! My daughter is playing Division 1 field hockey and needs to improve her running ability. She was very impressed with Ethel’s knowledge and the techniques she gave my daughter to help improve the quality of her running! We booked 10 more sessions after a successful first session!

Coach Ethel was great with my 12 yr old daughter. I loved that Coach Ethel gently pushed her to keep going but kept reminding her to drink water throughout the session as it was very warm that morning. My daughter was on her school's cross country and track (1600, 800) teams this past school year and she really enjoyed it so in preparation for the new school year, I wanted to get some training in. She had never worked with a coach individually before so we were nervous about how the first session would go. It was a great fit. We will be working with Coach Ethel the rest of this summer.

Coach Ethel was great. My son really enjoyed working with her and learned a lot in his first lesson

Coach Ethel was excellent! She was able to assist me in a realistic manner and she is running races herself and is able to give my great pointers on improving my running and my lifestyle as a runner.

Ethel is knowledgeable and listens to your goals and issues. Looking forward to training for a full marathon

Just finished my first two months with her as a coach and things are great. My running has never been better or progressed this far. The plans have matched my abilities and I'm continuing to work with her.

Coach Ethel was great, very knowledgeable. I am looking forward to future training sessions and running my first marathon!

Coach Ethel is training me for my 9th marathon. Despite my consistency with races over the years, my times have gotten slower and my passion for the sport began to lessen. On my own, I was struggling. However, in only a couple of short weeks with Coach Ethel, I remember why I fell in love with running to begin with! She is encouraging, knowledgeable, and experienced. Her certifications as a strength/conditioning coach, as well as a running coach, bring an expertise that anyone who is looking to reach a "new level" will undoubtedly benefit from. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire a professional running coach!

Ethel is a preparing my son for middle track in spring. She is a very dedicated, methodical and flexible . She provides feedbacks after every session which is very helpfull. My son looks forward to her coaching classes. I would recommend her.

Ethel is very experienced and knowable. I look forward to more training sessions with her.

My 11 year old son had a first session with Coach Ethel and he loved her. She is very easy going and was able to connect with him immediately. She has significant running experience and keeps up to date with training techniques, after only one session she gave my son relevant information to improve his running posture and speed. She struck a chord with him and he is motivated, training two additional days and looking forward to their weekly meetings. I highly recommend Coach Ethel.

Ethel is a fantastic coach who offers excellent advice on every aspect of running. Her experience is extensive and she answers any questions I have. She has the perfect demeanor to help a rookie runner like myself and with her guidance I will complete my first half marathon having never run in any races before.
