Comfortably Uncomfortable

The love I have for running, being outdoors and competing in races has given me confidence to set goals and challenge myself.  During races I am constantly asking myself,  “am I comfortable? Or am I comfortably UNCOMFORTABLE?” I have learned that sometimes we have to stretch out of our comfort zone in order to achieve our goals.  I love having a hobby that helps me do this and also gets me out in the fresh air on the road or trail, sweating hard and enjoying this beautiful world. 

Setting a goal, taking on a challenge or going after a bucket list item can be intimidating. It can be overwhelming to imagine finishing a 5k, something as big as a half marathon, or even bigger… a full marathon. This is where I can help! Together we can do this … Mile at a Time!



What people are saying about Mile at a time

  • "Working with Mile at a Time Running was the best decision I made in preparing for my marathon. Emily was able to make a personal, specific running schedule for me that not only obtained my goal but injury free. With her knowledge she knew just how hard she could push my body without overtraining. I trained with trust and confidence I would be ready and prepared and I was!! I loved my experience with Emily and will continue to have her help me in the future!!

  • "I had a great experience with Emily! She was great to work with from start to finish. I have never worked with a coach before and I’m thankful I found Emily. My training plan was great and she adjusted accordingly throughout my training. She checked in daily to see how I was doing throughout the process. We worked together for a half marathon and I can’t wait to work with her on my upcoming full marathon! I highly recommend Mile at a time Running!!"


  • " Emily is everything I wanted in a coach and more. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a wealth of experience that she tapped to create a custom plan that was perfect for helping me rebuild my stamina, strength, and speed. More importantly, Emily is just a terrific person. She was kind, encouraging, and very understanding of my emotional drivers. you simply will not find a better running coach anywhere. I am already planning to continue my work with Emily to accomplish some additional goals."
