What People are Saying

“Wow! I don’t know how to even begin describing the experience of a Half Marathon and the path that got me to the finish line…Without Carmen’s help, running tips and ongoing support I would never have been able to do it.  

She wrote me a 10 week program to start me on my training schedule, this become my bible.  A lot of things had to change in my life for me to be able to put in 100%; this did not happen right away but as my training increased my priorities changed.

She gave me everything and more for me to complete the run. All that was left for me to do was RUN! And run I did, I crossed the finish line in the time that we together had planned 2hrs 15mins.

I will forever be so grateful for all that Carmen give to me in my journey and so lucky to have gained so much, confidence, courage and strength all things that have made me a better me.”
