Allison Land

Hi, my name is Alli, and I have been the Training Programs Coordinator in Holland for almost 5 years now - but have been involved in training programs through Gazelle Sports for 7 years.

Growing up, I was never a runner. I was one of those who in gym class in high school would just stop running whenever everyone else had finished their timed mile, even though I wasn’t close to a mile yet. I was an adult onset athlete. After I graduated from college in 2009 I decided that I needed to do something to get in shape. So I started a run/walk program because running didn’t require an expensive gym membership or any equipment past a pair of shoes.

I ran my first 5k in 2012, and haven’t looked back since. Running has become one of my passions. I'm excited to share my coaching and training skills with others.

Angela Carron

I am a certified Lydiard Running coach at Gazelle Sports Northville. I've been running for 27 years and have completed race distances from 5k's to 100 mile ultras. I've run 95 marathons/ultra marathons and am anxiously anticipating number 100! Over the years (and miles) my experience, training and research has taught me a lot about what it takes to be a good runner, how to get faster and knowing when to take a break.

I take great pride in helping people accomplish their running goals and showing them that anything is possible with the power of a positive mind mixed with commitment and determination.
