Michele Pettinger   P3 Running

Train with Purpose. Run with Passion. Always Persevere.

We understand that every runner is unique; your history in the sport, current lifestyle and personal goals all play a role in designing the right plan. P3 Running is built on the belief that when you have the very best knowledge as your starting point, and support from your coaches and community throughout your training, you can foster, nourish and unleash your true potential.


Michele, the founder of P3Running, grew up with running as a second language. With her father working as the high school cross country coach, she spent many a day on the edge of a cross-country race course or in the infield of a track, watching him teach his young runners, listening to him call out interval splits. It was only natural that she laced up her first pair of shoes at a young age.

“So running is "in my blood" so to speak. I believe there is a balance between family, and work, and life and that balance looks different for everyone. I always keeps this in mind when coaching. I love to set a goal, put together a plan to reach that goal, and then work hard to achieve it. I would love to have the opportunity to help you do the same! ~Coach Michele

Michele holds a Masters in Communication Studies from Baylor University.
