Science-backed performance & injury prevention training
designed for your unique adventure
Our tribe. Our vibe.
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.
Run & Strength Coaching
Great to meet you!
I am doctor of physical therapy, coach, avid runner, mama, and founder of DPR. I grew up playing team sports, but felt the draw and love for running start to grow in college. In those early days, I coached at the high school and collegiate level and then transitioned to caring for injured athletes in the clinic as a PT.
There I found mostly frustration, since insurance doesn't allow for the necessary care and time needed to return patients back to sport safely. So I pivoted, created DPR, and now Coach Leslie and I help runners - beginner and experienced - prevent injuries before they start, all while chasing ridiculously fun goals together. We team up with runners like yourself to navigate the lows, celebrate the highs, and meet challenges head on with laughter and grit.
