  1. LOVED running with Gretchen. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and obviously a great runner herself. I would recommend her coaching to anyone looking to push themselves to the next level!

  2. Gretchen is an amazing coach!! She was my running coach when I was in a group she started called “Runaways” in Ketchum. She is fun, enthusiastic, talented, kind, inspiring, and generous. I actually looked forward to running with her every week — whether we were doing hills, going for a long run, or practicing pacing. She helped me push myself, become a better runner, and develop confidence. I count getting to work with Gretchen as a big gift in my life. It also helped to be part of a group. I tried new things, ran faster and longer, and had more fun training for a half marathon with a group than I would have on my own. Thank you, Gretchen! I wish you lived in Portland and were starting a group here.

  3. I’ve noticed a huge difference in both my running and my motivation levels in just the few weeks that I’ve been training with the Betties. Gretchen is a an amazing coach! She’s kind, supportive, encouraging, extremely knowledgeable, and she creates a variety of workouts that are challenging yet fun. My teammates are awesome as well. Fun, motivating and inspiring women. Thank you Gretchen and the Boise Betties for renewing my love of running!
