Coaches Biographies

Colleen De Reuck



Colleen's running portfolio has 4 Olympics Games.

Don't let that fool you. Colleen is really down to earth and calling a group "Group C" was a bit bland.

During the winter training program she formed the "Desperate Housewives" running group know as "DH". The fun continued as the group was awarded kitchen aprons at the end of the winter training.

She has enjoyed coaching the Striders and offers some flavor to a wealth of running - training knowledge to her group.

Shawna began her running career as a way to stay in shape coming back from college. She began training in the middle striders group slowly working her way up to the faster group over a number of years. Her first marathon was in 2006 in Portland Oregon finishing in 3:41:00.

“Running has grown from a hobby to a passion. Crossing my first finish line in Portland gave me the confidence that I could do ANYTHING I set my mind to, it was empowering.” “ The Striders family is an amazing group of dedicated runners who share the same passion and love of running as I do. They have helped me push myself harder than I thought possible” – Shawna Han

Shawna began coaching for the Striders in 2012. She offers personal experience in the sport and a strong dedication to help people reach their goals and find their own passion in running.
