Ryne Anderson

CTS Expert Coach – Specializes In Ultrarunning Coaching

 

“I believe the most successful athletes are the ones who find joy and fulfillment in their running by balancing training, racing, and life. Quality, not the quantity of workouts, will improve each athlete’s fitness, but not at the expense of losing that all-important social, emotional, and physiological balance.”

 

Coach Bio:

I have been coaching ultrarunners since 2018 and joined CTS in 2021. I grew up playing baseball and football and enjoyed a brief stint playing college football before injuries forced me to end my playing career in 2010. I quickly turned to running to satisfy my athletic and goal-setting temperament and found ultrarunning a few years later.

Before turning to coaching full-time, I was a middle school PE, Health, and Social Studies teacher for nine years. My time as a teacher taught me the importance of meeting the individual needs of each student I worked with rather than a one size fits all approach. Teaching and coaching are similar in that regard. One of my primary goals is to individualize training to each athlete and their life demands through frequent and honest communication.

I understand the challenges of training for mountainous ultras when limited by geography. I have run and coached numerous athletes with limited access to mountains that had successful races at Bighorn 100, Leadville 100, CCC 100k, and San Juan Solstice 50. Integrating strength and mobility work is vital to an athlete’s overall development, and I incorporate running-specific strength work with each athlete I coach.
