Addie Bracy, Head Coach

I've been spent over half my life immersed in the sport of distance running, and I'm still finding peaks that I want to summit (literally and figuratively). After going from a walk-on to a school record holder and national qualifier at the University of North Carolina, I decided to move out to Boulder, Colorado in 2012 to pursue the marathon. After five successful years racing everything from the 3k steeplechase to the marathon, two years ago I made the switch to trail and ultra running and have fallen in love with a whole new kind of challenge. I'm currently a graduate student at the University of Denver studying Sport and Performance Psychology while training for my first 100 miler. The only thing that has ever rivaled the feeling of setting out to chase my own goals, has been helping someone else do it. Coaching has been one of the most important parts of my life for the last 9 years. I spent 5 years under the mentorship of renowned coach, Brad Hudson, including co-authoring his training book "Coach Hudson's Little Black Book." My coaching experience has included work with high school athletes, sub-elites, beginning runners, and those seeking their first BQ. Coaching is something I've always been passionate about and I would be honored to help you on your running journey.

Corey Conner, Assistant Coach

Corey has competed in distance running at many different levels including high school, collegiately, and professionally. She was a 4-time All-American and school record holder at the University of Maine where she qualified for the NCAA DI Championships as an individual on 6 different occasions in cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. She went on to  run professionally for the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project where she qualified for two U.S. teams. After 2 years of training in Rochester Hills, she "retired" from running to move back to the east coast pursue being a "normal" person. In 2017 Corey found a new home in the Rocky Mountains, and it wasn't long after moving to Colorado that she rediscovered her love for running. She raced her first sky race last summer at The Rut where she took 7th place in a very competitive field. She has been an integral part of my transition to ultra running and has been the main crew leader and pacer for both the Never Summer 100k and the Leadville 100. She brings a wide array of knowledge to the Peak Training team with experience in competing at a highly competitive level for most of her life, while also putting that same effort and passion into crewing and supporting others' ultra running goals, qualities that make her an excellent coach.
