Meet The Coaches
Hello! My name is Chris and I’m excited to be one of your coaches. Running has become such an amazingly huge part of my life, and I love to share that with whomever I can. My running journey began at a young age participating in Junior Olympics and from then on, I was hooked. I scratched my competitive itch throughout high school and into college, where I was lucky enough to run middle distance at Seattle University.
After college, my running journey continued as I began a career with Fleet Feet. There, I began working on the floor helping guests and began to explore longer distances. With the help of the amazing local running community, I was able to complete multiple marathons and ultramarathons. I also began coaching the training programs at the store, where I can educate and connect with all types of wonderful people on their own running journeys.
Hi! I’m Rachel! I am 22 years old, and a recent grad from Drake University in Des Moines, IA, where I ran cross country and track and studied kinesiology! I am here in Portland to get my MS in Sport Product Design at the University of Oregon in Portland! I have been in love with running since I started running cross country at 9 years old, and the thing I love the most about it is the feeling of freedom and calm that I get when I run. I have always felt a great sense of belonging within the running community, and I hope to spread that sense of belonging to everyone I can! I truly believe that running can be a sport for everyone, and I am so excited to help everyone reach their goals with this training group, and to have fun along the way!
Some fun facts about me is that I love to roller skate, I am an aspiring artist, and my favorite karaoke song is Mr. Brightside by the Killers!I look forward to working with all of you!
