Jill Sellars

Coach
 

Jill is a Lydiard Foundation Level II running coach and has been
instructing runners professionally since 2014; mentoring, motivating,
and inspiring runners to achieve their individual potential. Like many
of her clients, Jill did not begin running until later in life and as a
result, has a unique understanding of the challenges and opportunities
afforded the novice runner. Her philosophy is that foundation and
consistency are essential. Learning to “run easy” is a crucial first step
one must take to truly train successfully. Jill strives to make running
fun and hopefully spark and cultivate a lifelong passion for people of
all abilities and backgrounds.
Jill earned a B.S. in Health Care Management from Metropolitan State
College and spent 27 years as a medical office administrator. She
recently retired and now works part time in the BVSD as a bus driver
for special needs children.
Having raised four wonderful children, Steve and Jill are now recent
empty nesters and the proud pet parents of Peanut and Snickers.
