About Coach Judy
Hi! My name is Judy Mick, also known as The Streaking Runner. With over 35 years of running experience, I know how much running can do for a person’s well-being! Throughout the years I’ve run numerous races at all distances. I started running in college (around 1978) to basically try to stay in shape (you know, beer and pizza at all hours). There was also a secondary reason. My best friend and roommate was trying to catch the eye of a member of the cross country team. Well, it worked on all counts, she married the runner and I’m still running!
I am passionate about running and helping runners to stay runners for life. So many runners start a running program and quit for some reason or another – I want to help them get started correctly and keep running for life! As a Certified Running Coach, I know that each runner is an individual. There is no “one size fits all” training plan. I help runners access where they are, what their goals are and create a plan especially for them.
I’m also a firm believer in positive attitude and motivation. Positive attitude can make all the difference in all area of life – including running! I am a huge cheerleader for my clients! I wanted to become a running coach to help others reach their running goals and keep them running for life. Running is such a great lifestyle – I want to help everyone stay on the roads!
I believe that each runner is unique and deserves a running plan customized especially for them. I also believe that customized programs are important for every runner – whether they run a 7 minute mile or a 17 minute mile.
Being a certified running coach with over 35 years of running experience, I love motivating runners (and future runners) to be the best they can be. This also involves training the mind.
My philosophy is to help runners enjoy the journey on the way to achieving their goals – whether it is to run a 5K, marathon, or to keep running for life.
