Want to expand your running knowledge?

Attend my seminars!

These seminars are created by Trisha for YOU: Athletes and coaches who want to improve and make a difference. They cover a variety of important topics to give you the knowledge and tools to successfully pursue your goals or help others pursue theirs.

Each seminar includes substantial time for questions and answers with our expert speakers as I believe dialogue is a crucial part of the learning process. Due to the desire to foster good conversation and allow for fully productive sessions, space is limited. The enrollment cap is listed in the information for each seminar.

I want you to join me!

“Since having Trisha at the wheel, I have not only become a smarter runner, but have been able to reach and surpass my goals, gain more self confidence and have a trusting relationship with someone who genuinely wants me to succeed.
