Time for Change:
I have decided after much thought that I will step down as Head Coach of @AtalantaNY . Coaching Atalanta has been an excellent experience and I still fully support their mission and goals. I felt I couldn’t support athletes both in New York and Flagstaff properly by splitting my time. I’m excited to see them bring on @justrunjulia and can’t wait to follow the team’s progression.
I have moved to Flagstaff, and I’m going to start my own training team @verdetrackclub where I’ll continue to coach both amateurs and professional runners. 📸: @theschultzee
As some of you know, I’m not one to post on Instagram much, and I tend to struggle to share my feelings- whether it’s because I don’t have the vocabulary or because I struggle with simply sharing. In an interview a few days ago, I was asked what coaching Molly is like. I said it's “fun.” As you can assume, they asked to elaborate, and I still came back with, “fun.”
Even in difficult times, there’s an eagerness and excitement with the growth that follows. On our high notes, it’s a reminder to be grateful for the steps it took to get there and to take a moment to smile and soak it in. There’s something thrilling about getting pushed outside of my comfort zone. I'm beyond excited to watch Molly absolutely fucking rip it this week in NYC.
Well this is behind the scenes panic that ensued after I messed up my last covid test before heading to Japan. Lucky for me John at @meentainc who supplied us with tests was able to meet me on a Saturday to supply me with tests so I could head over! I can’t say how grateful I am to everyone at @meentainc for helping me get on that plane to Tokyo/Sapporo to see Molly race!!
