Megan Smith   Team RunRun

I offer coaching services to runners in all events as well as athletes looking to condition for other sports. I currently am offering remote coaching services through Team RunRun, but am open to doing in-person coaching as well for anyone in the Pittsburgh area. All of my remote training plans include a monthly, personalized plan that includes both running & strength training (w/ videos) with daily feedback through Training Peaks as well as unlimited access to contact me with questions.
