Change your life.


I believe you're worth it, you have the power to make it happen, and the world needs the difference you create when you stand up and make the most of yourself.  When you're You.


Hi, I'm Susan

A Certified Life Coach, runner of 100-mile races, and practical idealist devoted to helping you change whatever status quo isn't working for you so you can do what you're truly meant to in your one, extraordinary life.

My clients are mostly women who run - the people I know best.

It doesn't matter whether you're a newbie, back of the pack, everyday, competitive, run-for-fun, or elite runner.  Whatever, I've been there - new, first, last, fun, race, and everything in between. 

I've spent a lifetime and bazillion miles creating the happiest, most fulfilling life I can, and I want to help you do the same thing in your own way - faster and easier than I did.

There's a lot you can do on your own to live a happier, more fulfilling life but if you're not making the progress you want - or you're getting stuck in the same old ways time after time - it's time to do something different. Think about it - is there any good reason to waste another moment of this one and only life living less than you're capable of?   

Wherever you are, let's start there and get you where you want to be.

think your way through 100 MILES

In this real-life (and free) 5-part video series, see the challenges at each milestone of a 100-mile race and get the ideas and strategies to face your first 100 with confidence or get more consistent results.


My Work

is dedicated to providing practical ideas and solutions that fit your life and your running, help you create the changes you dream of, and inspire you to re-imagine what's possible for you.  

I believe YOU CAN.

I would highly recommend your services to anyone who has dreams of doing something but somehow hasn’t been able to get themselves to achieve their goals alone. Or to anyone who feels that they don’t have a goal, but has a gnawing feeling that they are meant to do something, even if they don’t know what it is.

Dreams are just that until you find a way to do something about them.
