Ashley McLeish

Ashley started out as a gymnast whose career was cut just short of college by a surgery gone wrong. When she needed another corrective surgery 3 years later just to be able to walk she was left depressed and unmotivated and her physical therapist told her she needed a goal to get her through rehab. She decided she wanted to run a 5k. Nine months after surgery she ran, and won, her first 5k and quickly found a new passion and within 2.5 years she had run a marathon.

Fast forward more than 10 years and many, many races later she is now a physical therapist herself and loves motivating endurance athletes back to the start (and finish!) line. Ashley understands that everyone needs some help and motivation to reach their goals and is honored to be a part of your story!

Ashley lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Sean, who she trained to his first marathon finish in 2018. She is a physical therapist at UCLA where she treats those in the Motion Picture and Television Industry. You can find her running the beach path in Marina del Rey most days.
