Coach Paula Bryant is the Head Coach with our Sarasota team – she began running in 2000 as a stress relief while supporting family members through serious health issues. Running became a way to continue managing stress, maintaining fitness and meeting new people and building friendships. Coach Paula has completed numerous half marathons, multiple 5K and 10K races, and sprint triathlons. She obtained her personal training certification, and many times leads groups in core workout, dynamic exercises prior to runs. She relocated to Sarasota, Florida in December 2021 and will be leading group runs from there. If you are in the area, let us know so we can connect you with Paula. She is in a warmer climate now!
