What People Are Saying About Dream Run
Major Performance Improvements
Linda has been a fantastic coach over the past 2 years I have been consulting with her. She takes a more personalised approach than others. She understands myself and her other athletes and their capabilities which in turn creates a sustainable and enjoyable program.
I have been free from any running related injuries since starting with Linda, which has created consistency and major performance improvements from 5km all the way up to 30km. I have been able to smash my PB’s, recently my half marathon PB a year ago was 1:24, now down to a 1:15, 10km – 37:09 now a 34.
I can credit these results partly to my hard work but also to the smart and sustainable training load Linda prescribes to me. Anyone looking for a coach, or thinking about getting a coach, I strongly recommend Linda at Dream Run. You will really enjoy your training and have a great coach athlete relationship, whilst achieving great results!Daniel James
Returned after two knee surgeries
I thought my running days were coming to an end … that is until I met Linda. I have always loved running but after 2 knee surgeries things were not looking good. Linda’s program slowly got me back into it and within a year I ran the Great Ocean Road half marathon. I not only finished it I ran a faster time than what I expected, all thanks to Linda’s support. I am running 3 times a week with Linda’s personalised Dream Run program. New York Marathon here I come!Julie Ray
Helped Me Achieve My Goals
Linda coached me for the period from 2010 to 2013. She was always positive, cheerful and she made training fun. I competed in the Queensland State Track and field titles in 2011 and 2013, the Queensland Cross Country State Titles 2011 to 2013 and the Australian National Cross Country championships representing Queensland in 2013. I won a Gold Medal at Qld Cross Country Championships and a Bronze at the Qld Schools Cross Country Championships in 2012. I also ran a 3000m Pb of 10:07.
She taught be how to be resilient in the face of tough times. She set challenging but achievable goals, inspired confidence in me and I will always remember her as a warm and compassionate person who managed to lift my spirits and helped me achieve my goals.Rachael
Genuine Care and Compassion
Linda successfully coached Rach in Cross country and athletics at a time in Rach’s life when she was going through some emotional difficulties. Linda was like a rock for our family – always displaying genuine care and compassion. She was enthusiastically committed to her work and she gave heartfelt encouragement and guidance to Rach. Her clear attributes and experience as a great technician in her field were outshone by her thoughtful and kind mentoring and guidance – not only about athletics but about life in general and getting back up after being knocked down.Jackie (Rachael's Mum)
