The DPR Team Story
Dasher Personalized Running was established in 2017 while Dr. Asher was treating overtrained and injury-plagued runners in the physical therapy clinic. Though injury is an inevitability from time to time, a cycle of pain and heartache from continual setbacks is not. The DPR philosophy centers around long-term running that maximizes joy and mitigates injury through science based strategies and close athlete-coach communication.
The team is filled with amazing runners of all levels and goals: milers, 100 milers, power hikers, road racers and trail blazers. We are run-walkers, Boston qualifiers, just beginning-ers, belt buckle earners, and mountaineers... but in our hearts, we are all adventurers who love the life-giving nature of running. We might be spread across the world, but we are here to lift each other up, cheer each other on, and experience this crazy journey together.
A bit about the coach
My name is Asher Henry. I am doctor of physical therapy, head coach here at DPR, and an avid runner too! I grew up playing team sports, but felt the draw and love for running start to grow in college. Since those early days, I've been a high school and collegiate coach, worked with corporate, youth and adult runners, treated runners right after an injury as well as helped them improve mechanics, tap into their childlike joy of running, and reduce injury rates. From working with beginners to those of us with a bit more experience - I've loved every minute of it, and would be ecstatic to help you too!
