“Ellen coached me for the Christchurch Half Marathon for 4 months leading up to the race. I have been running for a number of years with a number of half marathons completed, but when I ran, I never ran with structure or intent - I just went out and blasted myself every time. I lost the enjoyment of running and thought my running days were over. Ellen helped me love running again. With her structured running plan, enthusiastic motivation and knowledge she helped me change my mindset about running. Without Ellen I don’t think I would be the person I am right now - out there  enjoying running again - even in the rain!”

“After admiring Ellen’s journey I caught the bug to run my first marathon before I was 40. We sat down and she analysed my stats and we set some short and long term  goals.  She designed a personalised programme to get me marathon ready.  Ellen provided ongoing support, checked in with me, and kept me accountable with her encouragement and enthusiasm. The education she provided on recovery, speed training, and how to manage my intensity of the weekly workouts ensured that I made progress while not hitting the wall or burning out. I blasted through with my goal time and managed to love the training and educative  journey to that start line. Ellen has been the most amazing support, she used simple language that I could understand and was really relatable. I felt so comfortable to ask her any questions, no matter if I thought they were silly. I would recommend Ellen if you are wanting support and programming to any event from 5km to marathon distance. Or if you're wanting to find your jam and love for running and that thing for ýou’. She will help you take that first step and empower you beyond what you thought you were capable of mentally and physcially. I have become so much more confident in many areas of my life that I know that I am now capable of running a marathon”.
