Erin Karara

Erin started running in middle school and has been running most of her life. She completed her first half marathon in 2003 and her first full marathon in 2005, and has raced all distances from 5k to 50-mile ultramarathon. Her favorite distance is the half marathon, because she feels that while it is a challenging undertaking and an extremely rewarding accomplishment, it is still manageable to incorporate the necessary training into a busy working professional’s life. Erin enjoys helping others meet their running goals, and has coached first time and seasoned marathoners and half marathoners throughout the years, many of which juggle busy work and family lives. She even motivated her husband to complete his first half marathon in 2013, and in 2014, the couple went on to become “Rock Idols” for completing 10 Rock’n’Roll marathon series races across the country. Erin became an RRCA certified running coach in May 2016, and even if she isn’t leading your pace group, you can count on her to be there cheering for you at the finish!
