Coach Terri Harris
I started running more than 20 years ago for general health and as an outlet from the stress of day-to-day life. I quickly found a community that is supportive and fun, and I’ve never looked back! I started running local 5Ks but quickly became interested in longer distances and triathlons. I competed in my first triathlon and ran my first marathon in the early 2000s, and I immediately fell in love with the training – the research, the planning and scheduling of workouts, trying new tactics, and especially the long run.
Over the years, I have qualified for the Boston Marathon five times, completed three Ironman triathlons and several trail ultras, including two 50 milers. While I love competing in any kind of race, it’s the weeks and months of training and preparation leading up to an epic race that bring me the most joy and fulfillment. I also enjoy helping others reach their goals. There is nothing better than seeing someone complete a race distance for the first time or set a new PR. After all these years, I still get filled with so much emotion watching the finish of a race.
As a coach, my goal is to offer customized plans to help athletes reach their goals and for them to truly enjoy the training. I am excited and proud to be a part of the Be Fit and Train team of coaches who are so passionate about the sport of running and triathlon and the individuals they coach. When I am not working as a coach and advertising professional, I spend most of my time outdoors with my three pups.
