About Kelly

Coach/Founder

I'm Kelly, your run coach and the founder of Happy Runner Club & More Miles Races. As a certified running coach through RRCA and completing the Health Mindset Coach certification, I’m so happy to work with runners of all levels and backgrounds. I’ve been a runner for 10 years now where a lot of life has happened in between. Running was never been just a workout for me. It quickly became part of my life and it’s been with me ever since. 

 

I started my coaching experience back in college when I volunteered for Girls on the Run. After college, I created a foster care youth running program for a local foster care nonprofit. I loved the challenge of creating a running program for all different levels of experience and life history. I was also the head coach of a cross-country running program for two years before I got married and started our family. 

 

Running has been with me through college, jobs changes, marriage, three pregnancies, postpartum, and more. You can find Kelly on Instagram at @moremilesmorefun.

About Erin

Coach


Hi! I'm Erin. I'm an RRCA and VDotO2 certified run coach by night, and a mom, wife, and military officer by day. I've been running my whole life, but didn't truly start running "as a sport" until a few years ago. After having my first baby, I created a "runstagram" and dove head-first into half-marathon and 10-miler training, and loved being part of the Instagram running community. Inspired by that experience, I started to deep dive the strategy and science of running, attended an RRCA training course, and started coaching runners!

I've had a wide variety of experiences as a mother and military officer -- from my early days pre-marriage/pre-kids where I could work out whenever I wanted, to deployments, to prepping for high-level military schools, and ultimately to balancing 3 toddlers while working full time during the COVID-19 pandemic! As much as I love running -- I love finding appropriate balance even more and truly think it's critical during any training cycle. 

A few more fun facts: I'm a graduate of West Point where I played D1 basketball. I majored in Civil Engineering, but have only used that degree to assemble Ikea furniture. I met my husband at Fort Bragg, NC and we "long distance dated" while deployed to different parts of Afghanistan. I'm an Army Jumpmaster, which means I can inspect your parachute and push you out of an airplane ;). I've lived in 5 states (2 of them more than once: NY, MO, NC, MO, TN, MA, and NY) in the past 10 years. My 3 kids are CRAZY close together in age (19 mo apart then 16 mo apart) and my husband and I feel like we are FINALLY coming up for air after some super challenging baby/toddler years. We are currently working at West Point, which was my DREAM JOB as a cadet!
