Coach Eve is fantastic. She is super friendly and personable, and really takes the time to get to know your needs & requests. Eve is thorough to begin with, asks about your running history & injuries and what you are looking to accomplish in a pre-coaching interview. In my first session, Eve observed my form and did several tests to see what I needed to work on to begin with, and worked with me to observe where I was especially tight; she then gave me some pointers on stretching effectively. Finally, Eve is really encouraging- less like my 8th grade soccer coach and more like a cheerleader (with some great insights to boot)! She is really positive and motivating. Definitely booking more sessions with Coach Eve! Highly recommended!
Coach Eve is an excellent running coach. She's highly skilled, knowledgeable and inspirational. When I first met Eve, I was a casual, intermittent, low-mileage runner interested in training for a half marathon. With Coach Eve's advice and encouragement, I ran my first 13.1 miles feeling strong, happy and injury-free. That turned out to be only the beginning! Coach Eve was also by my side as I trained for several more half marathons, and there was nothing better than having her there for me when I finished my first marathon. You're definitely getting something special with Coach Eve. She really invests in you and your goals, and you won't find anyone with more enthusiasm for the sport. She's an accomplished runner who's a pleasure to learn from and run with. I look forward to working with her to take my running to the next level.
I met Eve four years ago at my gym when I was recovering from an injury. We struck up a conversation while biking next to each other and immediately hit it off. She was so supportive and encouraging as I slowly made my way back to running. In fact, with her by my side, I successfully completed my third Boston marathon just five months after having knee surgery.
I have never met anyone as passionate and dedicated to running as Eve. Her eyes light up with pure joy when she talks about running and her runners. She truly loves coaching others no matter where they are in their running journey from one milers to seasoned marathoners.
If you're looking for a dedicated, enthusiastic, intelligent, challenging and spirited coach, look no further than Coach Eve.
I first met Coach Eve training for my first marathon - the Florence Marathon in 2007. She was the coach for a site of approximately 80 runners, all of different levels. At the start all of us wondered how in months we would be able to run 26 miles. But we did it. And it was amazing! Her enthusiasm is the first thing one notices about Eve. That and the direction and experience and knowledge she has to impart. You just feel you are in good hands.
I've gone on to run 2 more full marathons as well as half marathons, trail races and smaller events. And I've ended up remaining in touch with Coach Eve as well as other amazing friends I met throughout training. Several of us would be training buddies now and then and even support each other at races we had trained for later on.
And btw, I wholly encourage anyone "thinking" about doing one -especially if you've been thinking about it 'a long time' ;) to start. Just show up. The confidence and life affirming lessons you will gain will be life changing, and you meet amazing people along the way! Plus you get the added health and fitness benefits -& yes you will look better in your jeans too :)
I can't stress how much it meant to me personally to have her as a coach. I was very lucky. There have been many times during training or running a race her confidence in my ability has helped push me on to the finish line. There have been times I would think, “Well if Eve thinks I can do it, I guess I can do it.” And I would! Hers is a gift she is naturally born to I think, to encourage and support others and
share what she knows, including the joy of the sport. She will also be there with unparalleled enthusiasm and your triumphs I think are really her greatest reward.
I personally had the pleasure of meeting Coach Eve while training for the Florence Marathon. I had never done anything like this before!!!!!!!! Coach Eve was always upbeat, caring full of info and most of all, wanting to see her runners succeed as much as we did ourselves. WOW. We knew every week as we struggled, we had the best by our sides, literally. She would pop up right next to you and make sure you were ok and feeling good.
On the great day of the marathon, as I struggled one more time, guess who popped up one more time to make sure I and several others finished. I will always remember her happy face, strong will to keep going, positive attitude, and her face cheering us home.
I hope that you have the same fortune as I had meeting, A TRUE COACH, with a huge heart who truly cares for her runners and loves and lives the sport. I could not have achieved my goal without her leadership and determination for me to be a winner.
I trained for my very first marathon in 2006. I was 23 years old and had no idea what I was doing or even where to begin - until i met Coach Eve. There are many people who say they love to run. Maybe even some who say they are passionate about it. But the fire and drive that Coach Eve has is unsurpassed and when combined with a nurturing and natural skill in teaching/training others, the product is nothing short of magic. Eve was instrumental, not only in helping me train for my first marathon, but also in igniting my own passion for running and training for long distance races. I went on to run a total of 5 full marathons and 2 half marathons. She has my highest recommendation and I consider it a high honor and blessing to have her as a coach, cheerleader, and friend.
When I signed up for my first marathon training program I was fortunate enough to have Eve as my Coach. I was 59 years old and hadn't run in over 40 years. She was knowledgeable, supportive, friendly, enthusiastic, and joyful. I did so well in my first marathon in Las Vegas in 2007 I signed up for her Advanced Program to train for the San Francisco Marathon in 2008. In both races she was out on the course being a total cheerleader. She loves coaching and it really shows. My results were amazing all because of her specialized training. I highly recommend her for beginners and all levels of experience. I have now completed 9 marathons and 6 half marathons. Eve has made a big difference in my life, and will forever be my Virtual Coach.
