It's Not Luck, We Train For This

Coleen Shaw-Voeks

Coleen is a lifetime lover of all things outdoors and energetic, and she can often be found running in the woods like a squirrel on crack. She loves coaching runners of all abilities, teaching all levels of fitness classes and helping clients set goals and then smash them. 

 She grew up in an ultra running household and has always known that the marathon is merely a starting point for many runners. Once she stopped fighting against her inborn ability to run long and accepted her love of running ultra distances, her path in life became clear.  As of this writing she has finished 10 100 mile races including Leadville and Western States and finished countless other ultra distance races.

Getting her coaching certification from RRCA in 2010 was only the start of the journey towards helping runners. Lydiard, group exercise, personal training and pilates certifications have followed in the years since then, and all contribute to create strong, healthy and complete runners.

Leia Anderson

If you can’t find Leia she’s probably running in the woods. She’s a mother runner who loves ultra-marathons. She thinks training is at least as fun as racing. She’s completed several ultras including four 100 milers, and one 48hr race where she covered 176.5 miles.  She loves a looped course, as well as timed races and last person standing events.  She takes a special joy in having her kids grow up in the running community, and has felt particularly privileged to be able to nurse both her babies mid-race.

 Passionate about running as a lifestyle, she likes finding training schedules that work best for each person. Leia is also very community oriented, knowing that a support system can be a huge part of reaching personal goals, she likes to help people find a home in the running community. Watching people achieve things they didn’t know they could do and watching their confidence grow is her jam.  

 Leia is a Lydiard Level 1 & 2 certified running coach as well as GGS Pre and Postnatal certified.
