“As a marathon runner, I had hit a plateau and was not seeing my race times improve. I needed to find someone to help get me back on track. With Kari’s guidance, we revamped my training and I am seeing amazing gains in performance. Kari helped me understand the importance of strength training and running drills, as well as speed work. We developed a comprehensive training plan and now I am on my way to achieving my Boston Qualifying time.  I wish I had started working with Kari at the start of my marathon career!”
