Runnerpeeps is a group training program for runners and triathletes, yet it’s far more than running. The Peeps are healthy, diverse, and active members of our community. They are fun to be around and supportive of newbies. They strive for balance and make time for their families, friends, careers, and hobbies. They push themselves to great achievements, but they also take time to encourage others to be their best. For us, it’s about the lively and supportive community of athletes who care for and encourage each other to achieve their goals.

andrew stephen richmondAbout Andrew:  I’m a USATF- and USAT-certified coach, with more than 30 years of running experience and 15 years competing in triathlon.  Over the past 8 years I’ve coached over 300 athletes–many to podium finishes, personal records and new endurance achievements. Many others have successfully completed their first races in my program and ignited their passion for distance running and triathlons.

I’ve completed dozens of marathons and half marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, and lots of wacky trail races. For many years I was an avid triathlete, with three half ironman and 60+ sprint and Olympic distance triathlons under my belt.

These days, I love trail running and open water swims.  The diverse training demands of triathlon are an important influence on my run coaching philosophy:

  • Limited but quality running
  • Heaps of diverse cardio workouts
  • Efficient, economic swim mechanics
  • Frequent, brief core conditioning, agility and stability workouts
  • Functional strength routines, relevant to endurance athletes
  • Smart nutrition, ample rest
  • Balance…And, that means life balance – healthy, diverse, well-balanced lifestyles.  Time for family, community, friendships, spirituality, and other interests outside of running

EnoAbout Steph: I love to run trails, eat cookies, and encourage our Peeps. Umstead State Park and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail are my favorite places to run. I also manage our Runnerpeeps communication, volunteer, and social activities.

I love to badger peeps to do crazy trail races, silly workouts, and team events. Personally, I run for fun and love trail adventure runs with friends. I completed my first ultra-marathon distance in 2012 and was hooked on running long, but I mix up distances and venues to keep balanced.

I’m not a coach, but I’m always happy to share my experiences with Peeps who are trying something new. Nothing excites me more than seeing one of our athletes achieve something they didn’t think was possible.
