Welcome to Superior Running Co.! I’m Melissa, founder and head coach at Superior Running Co. I founded Superior Running Co. to guide you through exploring your strengths and achieving your goals. The Superior Running Co. training philosophy is based on a foundation of finding strength and joy in harking back to our roots as active foragers, discovering we are capable of much more than we believe to be possible.

I am continually inspired by seeing others accomplish things they once thought weren’t possible and my fulfillment as a coach comes from seeing you succeed in accomplishing your own audacious goals. Whether you are new to running or a seasoned veteran, you will receive personalized training plans specific to your individual goals. Any pace, any distance – with Superior Running Co. you will receive personalized attention and we will work collaboratively through consistent feedback, communication, and support.

I am a RRCA Certified Running Coach and ACE Certified Health Coach with a nursing background which led me to become passionate about guiding others in seeking health and happiness through running. I have over 15 years of running experience from high school cross country to ultra-marathons, with finishes ranging from back of the pack to award winning. I look forward to supporting you through achieving your running goals and celebrating your success!
