Deirdre has been working with Charm City Run since the Spring of 2006 and started coaching beginner runners in 2007. A high school athlete who lost athletic drive to academics in college—she picked up running in 2000 to get back into shape and enjoy the outdoors. She has coached runners of all levels for a local non-profit, Back on My Feet, but has been coaching half marathon and marathon runners through Charm City Run since 2011 when she left her full time job as a dolphin trainer to open Charm City Run in downtown Baltimore. She loves motivating people to run and being a part of the running community. Deirdre has completed 2 ultra marathons, 6 marathons, and too many ½ marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, and triathlons to count. She is a certified running coach through the RRCA.
