Meet Your Coach: Emily Estelle (email)
I got hired at Fleet Feet Spokane in 2015. I love Fleet Feet because I enjoy the running community and the personal connection I make with customers.
I started running in eighth grade by running with my mom. I kept running back and forth to her and loved getting outside. She suggested I sign up for cross country, so freshman year I joined the team. I fell in love with running and ran track and cross country throughout high school. I then ran in college at Arizona Christian University. Now I train for fun, and my favorite distance is the 50k because I enjoy long scenic views in the woods. I love helping others reach their running goals. I have coached UFC fighters and boxers in endurance training by incorporating hill and speed workouts into their training. I have also coached several season of our Fleet Feet 5k training. I really enjoyed watching those that I coach progress. It is such a fun day to watch all the runners faces as they cross the finish line, and catch "the running bug"!
