About Coaching

Gayle Deavers at The Cool Down after Junior Worlds Track and Field Champs June 2014

I learn more about coaching running all the time. I ran for the first time starting the summer before entering 7th grade, for the Santa Fe Los Alamos Golden Flashes. Traveling to Junior Olympic Nationals in the 4x400, and a trip to China with that club left huge impressions on me going into high school. I ran through my junior year; then stopped due to injury and lack of motivation. Coaching now is a treat. I have been working on my own running and have the good fortune of having Matt Holton coach me to my best 5K. Matt and I have coached several schools starting with the girls team at Seabury, Haleakala Waldorf middle school, volunteered at Maui High, and most recently Kihei Charter boys and girls Cross Country and Track and Field teams. We are currently helping youth, and high school athletes year round providing free practices at War Memorial stadium weekly on Wednesdays, and long runs up in Poli Poli on Sundays. We want to help runners succeed. Our website www.mauirunner.com helps communicate our experiences in the running community on Maui.
