Addison Smith

CTS Expert Coach

In running and in life there are two things that you can always control: your attitude and your effort. If we as a coach-athlete team can give our best attitude and effort towards the daily tasks at hand, good things will happen!”

Coach Bio:

Coaches have played major roles in my life; prodding me to understand my “why” when chasing after goals, helping me push past the physical and mental limits I thought I had, and educating me on lifestyle habits that breed success in and outside of the context of sport.

With a love for sport and a love to help others realize their potential, I knew that one day I too would have the opportunity to coach others. This journey to being a CTS Coach started with degrees in Exercise Science and Movement Science to build foundational knowledge of how the body works and can be optimized for human performance as well as participation in a variety of team sports and individual running pursuits that grew my passion for running, exploring, and competition. Today I’m excited to give back to the sporting community as an ultrarunning coach!
