Amy Baker I coach: Killer B's with Brent (Tues DT PM group) Background: I've been running for 18 years and it's become a part of me. It makes me the best possible version of myself.  Years Coaching & Philosophy: 6yrs; Listen, learn, guide, repeat.  Best advice for new Rogues: Speed is a result of training - it comes & goes, but our values and work ethic stay the same. You will get out of this, what you put into it, both in terms of running & community.  Most memorable run/race: I did a week long trail stage run in Ireland that I'll never forget because of the beautiful scenery & relaxed atmosphere helped remind me why I love running.  Interesting fact: I ran over 4,000 miles in 2015 - I might be slightly crazy! :)
