Welcome!

Stoked: being completely and intensely enthusiastic, exhilarated, or excited about something…when one is stoked, there is no limit to what one can do.”

Word. I’m Erica and I am stoked to help YOU make strides on your journey towards your true potential. Here’s what you need to know about me:  I’m a certified Level I RRCA Running Coach (Level II in process!) and a certified personal trainer. I’m into health, fitness, science, and sharing what I know with people. I live at the beach with my family, including a smart and sassy 4-year old, a fast-moving, always-climbing 2-year old, a supportive husband, and a wacky dog. In between running, teaching, training, coaching, diapering, and playing, I do a lot of research on a wide variety of topics. This website is a way for me to share some of that research and my own experiences with you about running, staying active,  and optimizing your health. It’s also a way for you to check out the services I offer as a coach and trainer. Achieving personal health and fitness is a lifelong journey, not a destination. So let’s share the stoke- with my help, there is no limit to what you can do!
