ANN SCHOLL @joyful_runner

TEAM GritChicks Ultrarunning Coaching

With over 100 marathons, 24 ultras over 50 miles (including eleven 100 milers!) under her belt, Ann brings priceless knowledge and experience to the athletes she coaches. Ann is a Certified Ultra Coach through United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy, trail race director, and joyful runner!

Ann specializes in coaching distances from half marathon through 100 miles, and ladies training for the joy of running.

"Training can be a big commitment, but it doesn’t need to be overwhelming. I'm here to take the guesswork out and make a plan that will prepare you both physically and mentally to take your goals to the next level.

Whether your goal is to run your first Half Marathon, a personal best at a 100 miler, or something in between, we will work together to create a training plan just for you! Let’s dream BIG together!"

"I have been running for years, but had stepped up my game five years ago with a 50k.  I found a training plan online and  followed that plan until I became injured from overtraining for what my body could handle.  After recovering, I decided to go for my first 50 miler. Knowing I had limitations, I knew I needed someone with experience who would listen to what I needed to create a training plan.  Ann talked with me to find out what my goals and expectations were and developed a plan that wasn’t just running. Her plan included power walking, spin and strength training. Needless to say, I rocked my 50 miler with the help of her knowledge and encouragement.  Since then, she has created two more plans for me. Ann believes in her clients while working with their abilities to help them achieve their goals." -Jeannette S.

 

"Ann helped me focus on my training around my goals without overthinking. She’s compassionate and accommodating, but also willing to call me out for my overtraining or under stretching. She gave me the pep talks when I needed them and helped me achieve my stellar year of running." -Relena R.

Jen Labesky  @jenlarun

TEAM GritChicks Coach Jen Labesky

Jen has completed 16 half marathons, 6 full marathons, eight 50k's, a 50 mile trail ultra and countless 5k's, 10k's, 10 milers and 25k's.

Jen specializes in coaching runners from beginners to 50 miles in addition to runners seeking the benefits of low heart rate training. 

 

Jen's journey to running was anything but traditional. In her mid 30's she was diagnosed with a congenital sacral disorder which had been dormant but was likely exacerbated by childbirth.

After 3 years of chiropractic care with days where the pain was so excruciating she couldn't move off the floor, Jen reached a point where she was fed up with feeling broken. After seeing how running had empowered so many people, ten years ago at the age of 40, she decided to give it a try.

She sought the help of a phenomenal physical therapist, who helped her strengthen her body to the point where she could safely run.*

 

And to her surprise, the more she ran, the stronger she became... physically, yes, but what she hadn't expected was how strong she would become as a person.

What a gift! Running allows us to experience our limitless power. Running allows us to access a level of freedom and joy so rare in our daily lives.

It is this experience that Jen's coaching promotes.

Jen has been an RRCA Certified Running Coach since 2018.

 

Her focus is on running healthy and running for life. 

*Always follow the guidance of a qualified medical professional.

"If you are looking for a coach that gets you and your needs, Jen Labesky is THAT coach! Jen started coaching me after I recovered from an injury. I had run a marathon the season before, but I in no way would be doing another one any time soon. Between the pull of family life and what my mind, body and heart needed in that season, I needed a coach that got me! Jen is that coach. Each month she crafts plans that are fun and stretch me without breaking me. I've gotten my love of running back since she's been coaching me. Last month for the 1st time ever I placed in my age group for a 5k. Not because I was trying. But because I was having fun running. Jen brings the joy to running. And that's huge!" - Chandra M.

Custom Training PlaN w/ TEAM Membership ($75/mo)
