Michele Pettinger   P3 | Running

What are the 3Ps? Purpose. Passion. Perseverance. More specifically Train with Purpose. Run with Passion. Always Persevere. I believe that every run has a purpose; from stripping all technology and running free to using a heart rate monitor as a tool to gauge effort on hill repeats. From running for fun or recovery to speed intervals around the track; there is a time and a place for each run, and if you’re training to be the best runner that you can be, they all play an important role.


Michele, the owner of P3|Running, 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
