Madison, WI , United States
My name is Nora Bird. I am currently located in Madison, WI.
I provide personalized training plans to fit your life. I work with all abilities and skill level. I coach athletes in every distance from the 5K to ultra marathons including 100 miles and beyond.
I offer a unique perspective where I offer the opportunity to run with my clients. I do have a large virtual coaching team as well.
I work with athletes on the trail as well as the road.
I believe that the right coach can help you see the potential you already possess and the confidence you deserve. Training isn’t always easy, but it should be fun and accessible. I believe that running should be a part of your life, not your entire life. I take rest days seriously and hard days hard. That being said, there is always room to move things around and a majority of the time we train on effort and time.
That is the beauty of personalized coaching, not two plans are the same and they are unique to you. All facets of your life are considered.
I love competing. I love the atmosphere that a race holds. I also love the challenge that comes with each and every race. The purpose of my coaching is to help you achieve the goals you have set for yourself. Whether you are new to running, chasing a BQ, or looking to venture into a new distance, the feeling of achieving that goal is the same.
I have personally competed in every distance. I have qualified and run Boston. I have run to date 10- 100 mile races, placing overall or AG for most of them. Currently, that is my focus for myself.
I starting coaching for the Girls On The Run program. Those girls helped me grow as a person and unknowingly helped me through some dark times with their positive and energetic attitudes. My love for coaching started there.
I am a USATF Level 1 certified coach, and currently taking the UESCA certification course.
