My goal following a nasty ankle injury was to complete my first half marathon. The thought of a full marathon was so far-fetched and elusive that it never even crossed my mind at the time.I needed a lot of help! Not only to run the distance but to also recover from injury and prevent further injury.I felt comfortable from the first phone conversation I had with Shona. She showed genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. Her training methods focus on all aspects of running- physical, mental and nutritional.Shona’s love of running is infectious and inspiring and her encouragement brings the best out of me in every training session.  Within the short 6 months I have been training with Shona, I have not only completed my goal half marathon, I have run multiple trail races including the Lamington Classic back to back 21km, the Mount Glorious half marathon and that far-fetched and elusive full marathon will be in 2 weeks!I have Shona to thank for helping me achieve my goals and for helping me continue to strive to complete new goals. Definitely the best coach ever!!Cora
