Lilly was the previous owner of Fleet Feet and worked hard on creating a great community for runners and walkers of all abilities. Her commitment to coaching has not only seen many of her athletes get fitter and faster, but she has helped change the lives of many to live healthier and happier! Fleet Feet Boulder is proud to support Lilly and her coaching group.
By way of introduction, I am Donna, a 64 year old runner and I have been running for six years. I met Lilly about 3 ½ years ago shortly after my husband and I moved to Boulder. At that time Lilly was the owner of Fleet Feet running store on Broadway just a few blocks from my house. I would stop by her store to browse and to have her reset the time on my old Timex running watch. I eventually decided to sign up for the No Boundaries running program conducted by Fleet Feet, which helps prepare people to run a 5K or 10K race. Our first group was small but Lilly was the thread that wove us together in friendship, fun, and her love of running. Through that first running group I met the people that would become my best friends in Boulder and Lilly was my first best friend. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for running inspired everyone in the group and as the time passed the group began to grow because of Lilly’s passion for life and running.
I have now been a part of approximately a dozen of Lilly’s running programs, and I cannot imagine running without Lilly’s programs. Lilly has changed and evolved since we first met. She has sold her running store and has her own running coaching business. Lilly’s coaching continues to inspire me and all others who know her. She makes me proud to be a woman and inspires me to be a better runner and a better person. I am proud to say I am one of Lilly’s best friends.
…Lilly is an accomplished athlete, trainer and mentor, who has made it a personal mission to give back to the community. Her training programs offer a supportive and encouraging environment for new or experienced runners to gain confidence and achieve their goals. She has inspired me in many ways, and it is a joy to watch her motivate athletes of all ages and abilities.
