KellyI’m Kelly Bither, founder and coach for Runner Chicks Training Club and Adventures.

I  have been married to my wonderful husband for 20 years and have two awesome daughters in high school!

I’m  not like most running coaches. I was not an athlete in high school or college. In fact the thought of running was very unappealing to me! I always was very intimidated by team sports and was not real coordinated. But as the years went on, I realized I needed to find something I could to do to stay healthy and try to keep the metabolism motor going! In 2003, I had some college girlfriend that were going to run the Rock-N-Roll Marathon in San Diego, of course San Diego and a reunion trip with my girlfriends was too good to pass up! So the marathon training began, yes I went from never running to training for a  marathon, (I recommend  going for the half marathon first) I did give myself 6 months to train. I trained with a girlfriend and realized this was something I could do–I mean I could put one foot in front of another….I made it through that first (and only) marathon, but loved it and all that went with it!

I realized that  there were other women like me , that wanted to start running, maybe got intimidated easily, would love to run with an encouraging group of gals. So I started Runner Chick Training Club! My clinics will train you for your first 5k run/walk program, 10k or Half Marathon!  It has been amazing meeting all the fabulous women!

With my love for hanging out with my girlfriends..after running….came the idea of Runner Chick Adventures…have a “fun run” somewhere really cool, where you wouldn’t go on your own, then have some fun afterwards, like wine tasting, chocolate fondue or maybe white water rafting!!

So that’s it in a nutshell, check out all the cool stuff coming this year, or email me if you have questions.

Look forward to seeing you at an Adventure or with the training group!

Come and join us, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for reading!
