Maximizing Your Results Requires More Than A Training Plan

We Surround You With Your Own Support Team
If you are going to spend money hiring a running coach, you want results. And if you want real results, you need more than a training plan. Successful running requires the application of science-based training customized to your unique needs. And this is where most run coaching programs end.
Inside PaceBuilders we go a step further by providing you access to experts in the field of nutrition, strength training, and injury prevention in addition to experienced, certified running coaches.
In other words, we surround you with your own support team.
Your PaceBuilders Support Team
Steve Carmichael - Founder
RRCA/USA Track and Field Certified Coach
Hi, my name is Steve!
I created the RunBuzz podcast and our PaceBuilders Training Program in 2014 to bring team-based, expert coaching to the running community.
I am a USA Track and Field and RRCA certified running coach. I have been coaching runners since 2012 in both a group and a 1:1 setting.
I have coached hundreds of runners from 5k's to ultramarathons and helped runners of all ages and experience reach their personal best.
My vision for PaceBuilders was to create a team of experts who will surround you and support you every step of the way by integrating running, strength training, nutrition, and a positive athletic mindset into a single, comprehensive training program.
Serena Marie RD
Team Registered Dietitian
Hi, my name is Serena!
I am a registered dietitian that helps athletes run free from crazy diets while chasing personal records. I am a runner myself and discovered nutrition through my love for running!
I have nutritional sciences degrees from Cornell University and Yale University. I decided to focus on sports nutrition after realizing how radically performance improves when focusing on nutrient timing and optimization.
I blend sports nutrition with intuitive eating practices to help athletes make peace with their diet and their bodies. I truly believe that nothing in the world is better than a good run and a delicious meal and I want everyone to appreciate these simple pleasures in life!

RRCA Level 1 Certified Coach
Hi, my name is Shawn!
I am an RRCA certified running coach and wife and mother of two teenage daughters.
I always played sports such as soccer, softball, and tennis growing up and in college tried my hand rugby for a season or two. After my daughters were born I decided I needed to lose weight and get healthy to be the best mom I could be. I lost 100lbs over the course of about 8 years. I began going to the gym and exercising as part of my healthy lifestyle.
Since that time I have run countless 5k's, several 10k's, several 10 milers, and 3 half marathons.

I started running in 7th grade and have finished over 150 races of various distances from 5k to 50k, including 11 Marathons.
Through running, I have learned to set and achieve goals, while developing confidence and proving that hard work does pay off. As a coach, I love meeting new people and using my passion to encourage other runners.
