MEET THE TEAM
Dasher Personalized Running was established after witnessing pain and heartbreak time and time again in the physical therapy clinic and out in the running community. There is an inherent injury risk to running and chasing big, scary dreams - BUT there are also ways to mitigate injury, mental burnout, over training, under recovery and chronic fatigue.
DPR partners with all levels of runners with the primary goal of running happy and healthy for as long as possible. Strength programs and gait analyses support effective form, strong mechanics and powerful running, while interactive running plans offer fine tuned progressions with recovery based on your individual needs. There is no need to comb through the sea of articles, webpages, and blogs in desperate search of the right plan for you. Each program is built off the foundation of your life circumstances and what YOU respond to best.
When you join the team, you'll also get access to our private Facebook team page, where we cheer each other on, share tips and wisdom learned on the run.
A dear friend and OG DPR team member graciously introduced me to Asher over a year ago. I was always hesitant to hire a coach. Only because I was fearful that a prescribed plan would take away some of the pure joy I have for running and training. Clearly my fears were irrational. Asher’s coaching is just the opposite! We thoroughly discussed my personal goals before we ever talked about an actual plan. Those goals had nothing to do with speed or weekly mileage or number of ultras I wanted to run, they centered around work-life balance, staying healthy, and making it to the start line of every race for which I signed up (training hard but staying healthy).
We all seek guidance/coaching for various reasons and we all come to coaching differently. A conversation with Asher can help you think about what you want to get out of your training plan before it ever starts, and I think that’s critically important. She’s exceptional at crafting plans based around your goals - tangible or not. I’ve really enjoyed the prescribed but flexible nature of Asher’s programming. And when she sets the plan, I follow it to a T but let her know if I need to adjust it based on life events. She’s wonderful about changing things up as life gets in the way - you just have to communicate to her what you need and you’ll quickly find not only your coach, but also one of your biggest and most supportive fans!
