CLUB MEETING – MONDAY, MARCH 12 (CHANGE FROM MARCH 5!!)

We meet at 7:30 PM at the Peachtree City Hotel and Conference Center.

Guest speaker will be Margie Ellison:

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I moved to Peachtree City earlier in the fall to continue my career in the coaching industry. At the moment, I work with the PTC Rowing Club. In addition to that, I run my own coaching business on the side.

I work with a wide variety of athletes on their training and nutrition. I’ve worked with marathoners, ultra marathoners, triathletes, cyclists, strength athletes, general population, and others.

I offer various services such as race preparation for both training and nutrition, strength training on off season, online coaching, and in person training, along with other services.

I wanted to reach out to see if any members of the PTC Running Club would be interested in the services I offer.
