I’d like to introduce you to my coach and mentor, Alyssa Morrison (AJ). I’ve been working with her for about three years now, and she just helped me through my first 50 miler. AJ and I have worked through a lot together over the last several years – everything from Olympic triathlons, Ironmans, marathons, and now ultras.
I cannot endorse Alyssa enough. When I met her three years ago, my body was in shambles as an athlete, and I almost felt like walking away from racing. In a very big sense, she saved me. Since she comes from an occupational therapy background, she understands a bit more about the body and balance than all other coaches with whom I have worked. She’s certified in everything you could ever want/desire in a coach, and has been selected to partake in some very exclusive certification programs. She is an extremely accomplished athlete in her own right – but always has the business savvy and acumen to always put her clients first. In short, she’s one of the best–and most connected–in the area. I could go on for a while, but you get the idea. She’s simply one of the best people I have in my life.
