Adam St. Pierre

CTS Expert Coach – Specializes In Ultrarunning Coaching

 

Running and training are not things you fit into a schedule, they are an integral part of life, part of what makes a person whole. As a coach, I help to ensure that the athletes I coach do enough work to meet their goals.”

 

Coach Bio:

I started running on the middle school track team in New Hampshire. I didn’t know then how big a part of my life running would become, I just knew that my dad held the school record for the decathlon and that I wanted to break it! In high school, I took up cross country skiing as a way to get in better shape for track season. I went to Colby College in Maine expecting to play soccer and run track, but decided that XC skiing was actually my sport. I raced collegiately for 4 years while getting my degree in Physics and Biochemistry then moved on to earn my Masters degree in Kinesiology: Exercise Science from the University of New Hampshire. While working towards my degree I worked as an assistant coach for the Bowdoin College ski team. I immediately realized that I am a better coach than an athlete and have coached ever since! In 2006 I moved to Boulder and started coaching the Boulder Nordic Junior Racing Team and working as an Exercise Physiologist, Running Biomechanist, and Coach at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. I left BCSM in late 2014 to pursue coaching full-time and have been with CTS since 2017.  I’ve run races from ½ Marathons to 100 milers and particularly love the variables associated with ultra-distances. I love spending long days on trails in the mountains, accessing places you can’t get to by car (or bike!). I love to stand on mountaintops and travelling fast and light in the wilderness on my own 2 feet. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife, 2 young kids. and 2 old dogs.
