Customer Service Manager Maria Williams

Coach Maria brings her "Never Say Never" attitude to SPRC. She helps runners of all levels reach their goals (and have some fun!). A former overweight music major at Gordon College, Maria signed up for her first triathlon in 1999 at a time when she couldn’t swim, bike, or run. Since then, she has accomplished over 100 races from 5k to Ironman and wants everyone to feel as great as she does on a daily basis. With a husband and two children, she understands the demands of training and the impact it can have on family life. She not only trains runners but teaches them the art of training smart, recovering properly, and racing hard while maintaining life balance.
