ULTRA LADIES COACHING

Ultra Ladies Coaching is the first "WOMEN'S ONLY" coaching program with experience in coaching a wide array of athletes, abilities and race distances whether you are new to running or are a veteran who wants to improve your performances.
Coaching is a partnership between Coach and Athlete. A good Coach will instill confidence and independence in the athlete who will gradually learn to be “self coached” through the process of being coached. Training should involve challenge, balance and fun and should be configured into the Runner’s life to not compete against professional or personal time. Goal setting is a huge component of coaching, and monitoring Runners to measure their progress is my job. This begins with assessing the Runner and creating a Training Plan that compliments the runner’s abilities and goals.

Nancy believes in keeping your training do-able, keeping it balanced and keeping it fun! Nancy uses "Mindfulness" techniques that focus on empowering individuals' actualization of potential and embodied transformation through guided imagery and visualization techniques combined with a personalized plan to help you meet your running goals. My UESCA Certification in Endurance Nutrition will help you build the strongest body for running and recovery. I believe in creating a balance between running and life. While you will have a training plan to follow, the plan is a living document that can change according to your needs as an athlete, to build the strongest, most confident version of yourself while maintaining balance with the important parts of your life that also matter (partner, family, work and more).

“When you train smart, a race is simply a celebration of your hard work.”


One of my mantras is "identify your weakness and train to strengthen them". This is how you see the most improvement; such a simple concept! Another old mantra "no pain, no gain" is replaced by "if you put in the work, it will work for you!"

YOUR COACH

Nancy "Ultra Mama" Shura-Dervin is founder and owner of Ultra Ladies and Trail Run Events. She started running for the very first time at the age of 40 and has finished more than 100 marathon to 100+ mile races where she has several age division podium finishes. Nancy was the first person documented to qualify for and finish two of the most prestigious foot races in the world in the same year, the Boston Marathon and the Badwater-135 Mile Ultra Marathon, known as the "World's Toughest Footrace".

"If SHE Can Do It... You Can Too!"

Nancy is a RRCA Certified Running Coach, UESCA Certified Ultra Running Coach, UESCA Certified Endurance Nutrition Coach and holds an active CA nursing license. As Nancy didn't start running until the age of 40, she especially enjoys coaching older athletes. Nancy's career as a groundbreaking educator, coach and motivational speaker in the field of natural childbirth beautifully translates to help female runners learn the physical, mental and emotional tools to complete challenging races.

Let's Work Together to bring your goals to fruition!
