Courtney discovered endurance sports later in life. After graduating college and moving to Vermont, she completed her first road race, a 5K, at the age of 22. She then ventured into longer events and completed her first marathon in 2000. She loved the discipline and challenge that endurance running provided, and she especially enjoyed the social aspect of the local running community. In 2002, she was introduced to speed work and trained with a coach; she quickly learned the importance of a structured and purposeful plan. She was able to shave over an hour off of her marathon time and achieve her first Boston qualifying time! 20 marathons later; it’s safe to say she’s hooked!
In 2007, Courtney was introduced to the sport of triathlon by a running friend. She loved the variety of the training as well as the many intricacies involved with training and competing in triathlon. She has competed in all distances from sprint to Ironman and has enjoyed many podium finishes as well as Age Group Nationals qualifications.
Running paved the way for a career in the fitness industry. Through her 17 years at the EDGE, Courtney has been a swim instructor, a personal trainer, a cycling instructor, a run coach, fitness director and club manager. As a mother of an active 5 year old, she knows what it takes to balance family, work, and training. She strongly believes that it is important to make time for yourself, so you can be your best in all other aspects of your life!
Courtney will help you set realistic goals, hold you accountable while allowing flexibility, and make training and racing both fun and enjoyable!
