Personalized run coaching!

Alysha Whitney



My name is Alysha Whitney. I Began my running journey in 2012 and have run many half marathons, full ​marathons and challenges. Most of my running career has been runDisney races; I most recently ​completed the Dopey challenge (48.6 miles over four days) for the second time in 2023 and the Walt ​Disney world marathon in 2024 for my seventh full marathon!

I have mentored runners since 2016 through two facebook groups I created and have helped many ​achieve success in their first races. In July 2022, I became a RRCA certified run coach and In April 2023, I ​also became certified through UESCA. I am very excited to formally coach individuals!

What you can expect from my program is a coach that will help and support you through the ups and ​downs of training. I will be motivational, but also realistic and firm at times, to help you get to your ​goals! After you fill out the consultation questionnaire, I will set up a virtual call to get some more ​information about you and your goals. Finally, I will determine if I feel I would be the best suited ​coach for you before creating a personalized plan. Since these plans can change, they are usually sent ​out in smaller weekly segments to help work around life events. I hope you choose to fill out the ​consultation questionnaire and work with me on your journey towards your running goals.

Alysha and her run coaching may just be the best investment I have ever made for myself. The care, research, ​detail, and consideration she puts into the training plans she makes are amazing. My life is never dull, and I ​have a lot of different things that affected my training, but she made sure to take all of those things into ​consideration without allowing me to give up on myself or my progress. She always had my weekly and ​monthly plans out with plenty of time to arrange my schedule. Alysha never complained about my random ​texts at all times of the day and always had the answers I was looking for. Having built in monthly Facetime ​calls also allowed me to get to know Alysha better and connect the dots on why I was doing what when during ​my training. I may not have any more running challenges planned at this time but as soon as I do, I know who ​I'll be calling! I would whole heartedly recommend Alysha to anyone for anything they want to achieve.

Several years ago I remember being part of this ​motivational facebook group, and you posted that you ​had completed your first full marathon. In your post, you ​said something like “Now I am a marathoner.” Those ​words inspired me to complete my first marathon in ​2020, because I wanted to say “I am a marathoner,” too! ​Five little words moved me to complete it! Thanks for the ​motivation!


It was my lucky day when I connected with Alysha ​through her RDMT Facebook page! We soon met at ​the 2018 RunDisney Marathon Weekend. Following the ​marathon, Alysha encouraged me to sign up for Dopey ​2019. What a journey that was! I relied on Alysha’s ​encouragement, advice and support while I worked ​through the training miles, as well as at the races. I ​credit her for getting me to all four finish lines ​successfully! Alysha continues to be my motivational ​running friend.


I am working with a coach right now to find out what I want in my career. One of the assignments was to write down ​people who inspire me and Alysha is one of those people! Her kindness is inspirational. She has so much patience with ​everyone, we see the same questions multiple times a year in the facebook groups, and she will answer them thoroughly ​and as many times as needed. No question is silly or weird. I've met Alysha only twice in real life, but she is a kind and warm ​hearted person. I admire her determination, running is the easiest example for me to articulate that, all those training ​miles she has done to get to her goals is so amazing to see! I love seeing her stories on instagram where she tackled great ​distances. I have so much respect for her virtual marathons! That takes a lot of willpower to do a marathon virtually. I am ​so happy you're a host on the Rise and Run podcast, I always enjoy listening.
