“You two can go, one, two.” It was Martise Moore’s first state championship race, and her hurdle coach had just predetermined her runner-up. The two fingers he put in front of her face summarized the second-place finishes to her senior teammate all season. So, she decided to make a choice: see the two fingers as second place or a victory sign. She chose victory. Minutes later, she ran a PR and was a 55-meter hurdle state champion.
That race and that decision would forever change her life. She would always choose to win. Martise went on to win three more Maryland state hurdle titles and become a scholar-athlete at the University of Southern California (USC).
After graduating Cum Laude from USC with a B.S. in Business Administration, she advised families and fiduciaries on capital market investments and built a successful career. But something was missing….
In 2009, she created the GreenRunner brand to supercharge runners’ confidence and personal bests.
The Mission: Enroll and inspire awesomeness around the world : )
Today, the GreenRunner movement consists of Run Faster Coaching. Using Coach Martise’s Run Faster Formula, clients celebrate PRs in track, cross country, 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, marathons, ultra marathons and fitness tests (PT). She’s honored to coach kids, newbie runners, weekend warriors and military and law-enforcement candidates and personnel.
