Meet Amanda Strommen of Mountain Mindset Endurance Run Coaching

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Strommen.

Hi Amanda, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I fell in love with endurance running in college. Running has always been a self-care activity that has helped ground me. It has also taken me to some of the most beautiful places. I decided to get my run coaching certification in 2020 and start my own coaching business so I could share my expertise and passion for running with others. I want to help others find the joy and fulfillment that running has brought to my life. Through racing and reaching toward my running goals, embracing the journey of endurance run training has influenced my lifestyle and mindset in a way that has allowed me to live my life to the fullest.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has most certainly not been a smooth road. I firmly believe anything worth pursuing in life will have challenges that come along with it. Starting my run coaching business was no exception. Unfortunately, the covid-19 pandemic shut down life as we all knew it right before I launched my business. Races were canceled, people were quarantining, and many lost motivation to run without the camaraderie of run groups and racing events. The pandemic also took a financial toll on many. This certainly wasn’t the ideal time to launch my business but it brought me joy, and I had put so much hard work into it, so I launched in mid-2020 anyway. It was slow building an athlete base at first, but patience and hard work paid off, and I have had the pleasure of coaching many wonderful athletes over the past several years.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
As your certified coach through Mountain Mindset Endurance Run Coaching LLC, I will work with you in a shared partnership to help you reach your endurance-running goals. I will take the time to get to know you and your lifestyle, your athletic history, training availability, and motivations for your running ambitions. These factors will influence the development of your personalized, adaptive, exercise science-based training plans. The best results and most rewarding experiences are achievable in a coaching relationship with open lines of communication and a shared dedication and commitment to your goals. I would be honored to help you make strides in your running performance and my hope is that embracing your endurance run training journey will further enrich all aspects of your life. Celebrating your hard work throughout the process and achievement of those goals will always be the most rewarding moments for me.

Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
