Who am I? 

My name is Kara and I am a Road Runner’s of America Certified Running Coach. I am based in Columbia, South Carolina. I work as a Grant Manager by day and fit in running in the early mornings and evenings. 

My running experience: 

I have been running competitively for 12 years. I aim to race atleast 2-3 times per year and I enjoy trail running the most. I have run numerous 5ks, 8k’s, and 10k’s. I have also ran both the half marathon and the full marathon. I am getting hip labrum surgery in December 2017 and plan to race more often once I am injury-free. Once I return from my Injury, I will continue to chase my “running dreams” which includes: qualifying for the Boston Marathon, running a 2:35 800M, & racing in the U.S. Mountain Running Championships. 

Why do I coach?

I started this business to share my love for running with the women in my community. I believe that I can change my hometown for the better through running. I want to help women reach their goals and provide them with the confidence to dream big.
