Coach Christine T.
Coaching since summer 2013
When you’ve practiced a sport for years, it’s easy to get focused on time, technique, and performance. Those are important, but the Title IX girls have reminded me that there is also joy in the act of running. Every Tuesday, each girl I mentor teaches me to let go and enjoy the run.
Let’s face it. The transition from childhood to adulthood is hard. There are specific challenges for girls at this age as they define who they are, and who they want to be. Our coaches can help girls by providing a safe, healthy place to explore this stage of their development.
Take our coaches: we’re different personalities, but we all approach club with the same spirit of friendship, compassion, and healthy competition. It’s my hope that every girl sees this, and finds ways to incorporate these qualities into her own life.
Fun fact about me: When I’m not running, I’m usually planning my next trip. Exploring new places, meeting new people, eating new food—I love traveling!
