RRCA-Certified Coach

Lesley Jones is a busy mother-of-3, adventure and race addict, marathoner, ultrarunner, and an RRCA-certified running coach. She has run 11 ultramarathons (50K – 100 miles), 12 marathons, 29 half marathons, and many other distance races. But her greatest joy is coaching others to meet their goals and inspiring them to reach for goals they never even thought to attempt. Lesley has taken many runners from their first run to a marathon, and has a passion for new runners! She also enjoys helping establish runners tweak their training to reach new distances and set personal records. Coaching is done online, mostly via email, and every plan is customized for the individual’s schedule, needs, limitations, and capabilities.

Client Testimonials

"The first thing you should know about Lesley is she's a runner and a coach. There's no better source of information than someone who's already been there and done that. ... If you're considering a coach, I recommend Lesley without reservation, whether just starting out or looking to accomplish greater things."
- Stuart Mackinnon

"Lesley gave me workouts that I didn't think were possible, but I would nail them because she knew what I was capable of. She is there to answer questions and support me through every run. Lesley keeps me accountable and motivated and driven to continually raise the bar. I’m excited to see where I can go from here."
- Aubrey Power

"Lesley started coaching me in June of 2013. At that time I was only running 3 to 4 miles at a time. I was never a runner and not in shape. She coached me to a half marathon by September of 2013. I couldn't have done it without her. I also live 2000 miles away, and she coached me online."
- Marilu Wilson

"I had participated in several half marathons through a charity organization and got bitten by the bug. ... Before Lesley, my focus was on surviving the distance. She changed my approach and taught me training techniques that have increased not only my ability, but the joy I get from running. I’m now learning how to run and not just complete the distance!"
- Jennifer Mitchell
