Carolyn Coffin and Kim Senechal

Lynsey Romano is the owner of Skyline Run Coaching, a virtual business based in Airdrie, AB with a team of two coaches and over 35 athletes. They create personalized and evidence-based running and strength training plans with an emphasis on enjoyment of the sport and long term athlete development. Lynsey is a lifelong learner when it comes to both the science and art of coaching, taking into account the unique needs of every athlete on her roster.

  • The importance of strength training for runners
  • Fueling for performance 
  • Reframing the idea of “motivation”

  • Training Peaks certified coach - Level 1
