Alicia grew up in the rugged ranching community of Gillette, Wyoming. For most of her childhood you could find her on a horse at a rodeo or with a basketball at the gym. Out of curiosity she tried a season of cross-country and fell in love with the difficulty and freedom of running. Eventually her newfound running addiction landed her at Stanford University to study Human Biology and train and compete for the Cross Country and Track and Field Programs. Those years were incredibly rich and formative in who she become as a person, professional and athlete.
Shortly after graduating Alicia moved to Mammoth Lakes to try her hand in the professional running realm. After a lot of setbacks and difficulty, she had to step away from the sport for awhile. Somewhere along the way she found solace and healing in the small mountain community of Flagstaff Arizona and decided to turn her passion for the sport towards helping others reach their own running and health goals as a coach. Eventually she battled her way back to being healthy and resumed training and racing. In recent years Alicia transitioned from road and track racing to a new adventure in mountain/trail racing. She couldn’t be happier to be back out on the trails again! Alicia considers herself very blessed to have a long and rich relationship with the sport of running and considers it a gift to be able to share that with others as they work towards their own training and health aspirations.
Currently Alicia is the owner of Alicia Shay Coaching and also works for The Run SMART Project. More than anything she loves adventuring around the mountains and valleys of Summit County. You can usually find her out on a beautiful trail or catching a sunset/sunrise ski near the 10-Mile Range.

Jeremy Strom is the founder and Head Performance Running Coach for Satori Endurance. SATORI refers to perfect focus, thought, action and success. In SATORI, fear, failure, negativity and distraction do not exist. SATORI is the purest form of our potential. As a young boy, one of Jeremy’s passions was running, to school, at recess, back home and in most of his free time. Jeremy explains how running gave him freedom, otherwise lost in chaos, school work and social interferences. When he was just 7 years old, he received two books as a gift (Jim Fixx’s Complete Book of Running and Bruce Lee’s The Tao of Jeet Kun Do). The philosophies and concepts of these two books started me on the path of wonder, running, martial arts and performance. Fast forward through change, growth, experience, 50 countries, thousands of athletes, SATORI Endurance was born.
Jeremy is also the Head Coach for Liberty High School Cross Country and Track & Field teams in Colorado Springs. Jeremy brings a unique set of skills, education and experience to youth athletes. Jeremy has been blessed to travel the world working with Fitness Professionals, National Teams and Professional Athletes for the past 30+ years. While Jeremy’s education and experience span a variety of sport and training modalities, his first love is running and coaching runners. Over the last 25 years, Jeremy has built a system of training and running performance that allows athletes to find JOY and SUCCESS in all aspects of running. Jeremy’s unique 5 pillar intensity scale and Perception Based Performance will allow all levels of runners to achieve their SATORI.
LISA RENEE TUMMINELLO
Lisa Renee has coached for over 25 years, as a strength, running and cycling coach. Lisa Renee’s specialties include functional movement and mobility, sport specific program design, endurance training, and power and speed training. Lisa Renee is the Head Coach for the Steamboat Springs High School Cross Country and Track & Field programs and is the founder of Steamboat Springs Youth Track and Field. She is passionate about coaching high school athletes and to help them chase excellence, in ways that are measured by the human heart, much more than a physical outcome.
Lisa Renee’s roots as an athlete began on high school cross country and track & field teams, and she then turned her athletic passions to collegiate and professional rodeo. As an adult, she has competed as a professional road cyclist, including racing on domestic professional teams and as an ultra endurance cyclist. Her cycling accomplishments include winning a National Hill Climbing Championship, winning the 12 Hour World Time Trial Championships, and winning the Race Across America on a 4-person women’s team. She and her husband now race as Team Steamboat in multi-day adventure races, involving mountain biking, trail running, white water and orienteering. Their kids, Alexandra, Bowden and son-in-law Destrey, chase adventure on mountain trails, alpine summits, and around the globe. For Lisa Renee and her family, health and sport is a gift that should cause us to dare to live audaciously and count every adventure as a gift from above.
Doug is an experienced adventurer and expedition leader, having completed multiple mountaineering, ocean, and polar expeditions. His mountaineering exploits include summits of Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest mountain, and Denali, North America’s tallest mountain. Doug was team leader for both expeditions and his team was awarded the Denali Pro award by the National Park Service for assistance they rendered to another climber during a severe storm. Doug was also a team member of an 8-person crew that rowed 3,600 miles across the Indian Ocean from Western Australia to the African continent in an ocean-going rowboat. Their team was awarded multiple Guinness World Records for the expedition, including the fastest crossing of the Indian Ocean by rowboat – 58 days at sea. In 2016, Doug attempted a solo, unsupported ski expedition, traversing from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole. He was forced to abandon the effort after 36 days/360 miles due to adverse weather conditions and nagging injury.
Doug was a cross country athlete and 800m runner in high school track and field. As an adult, Doug has focused on endurance races such as the New York City Marathon, Leadville Silver Rush 50-mile and the Leadville Trail 100 Ultramarathon. He and his wife Lisa Renee now compete in multi-day adventure races involving trail running, mountain biking, orienteering, and white water rafting. Doug enjoys speaking to youth athletes about goal setting, perseverance, the power of attitude, and the beauty of the natural world.
Kelly is currently the assistant Cross Country and Track coach at Steamboat Springs High School. Her foundation as an athlete today was built in her high school running days. She grew up in Massachusetts and competed in cross country and track there, and then as a collegiate runner at Cornell University. As an adult living in Boston, she competed in the many road races there, eventually moving up to the marathon distance. After moving to Steamboat Springs, she was training for her third Boston marathon when a stress fracture changed her course. Spending that summer on a bicycle, she fell in love with mountain bike racing and thus began a 15 year stint in the professional/elite world of cycling. She credits her years of hard work and discipline as a cross country and track athlete for the successes she had later in life on the bicycle.
Kelly is also a mother of two daughters, and has enjoyed traveling alongside them with the many different mountain sports that these lucky Steamboat kids are exposed to. Six years ago, her older daughter decided to run cross country as a freshman. Kelly was introduced to Lisa Renee and found herself coming full circle as a coach in the sport that introduced her to all of the greatness of athletics.
Eva was born and raised in the mountains near Salzburg, Austria. She retains a love of the mountains to this day. High schools in Austria, like most of Europe, do not have interscholastic school sports. Instead they have a club-based sports system. Eva was an alpine ski racer in her school days. Upon meeting her husband Mike while he was stationed in Italy, and moving to the U.S., she picked up running and became an outstanding road racer.
Eva was an assistant XC and track coach at the United States Military Academy - West Point, from 2000 to 2002.
When they moved to Colorado, Eva coached the Pentathletes on the US Olympic Team at the Olympic Training Center. It was in Colorado Springs that Eva started trail running and ski mountaineering and quickly became a top-level competitor. While Eva can still occasionally be convinced to enter a trail or skimo race, which she typically crushes, she runs or skis daily for the joy and bliss of being in nature.
Shortly after moving to Breckenridge, Eva and Mike founded the Summit Distance Project for area youth runners. Eva has coached the Summit Middle School XC and track distance teams for several years with outstanding results. In 2020, Eva began coaching the Summit High School nordic team and they have already won a state championship.
Eva loves coaching youth runners. She had a remarkable ability to inspire youth runners and instill confidence while they learn to train hard and love running.
Mike was an unremarkable high school and collegiate athlete who nevertheless greatly enjoyed endurance sports. He gradually improved, earning a few results such as 1997 USAT Amateur Triathlete and Duathlete of the Year (Age-Group Duathlon World Champion and Triathlon National Champion), five second-place age-group finishes at Ironman Hawaii (but never first), 6-time consecutive Armed Forces Triathlon Champion, 2013 Xterra National Champion, 2014 Ski Mountaineering North American Master’s Champion, and 2015 and 2018 Breckenridge Epic 6-day mountain bike master’s champion.
Mike earned a Master’s in Exercise Physiology, taught Physical Education at West Point and commanded the US Army World Class Athlete Program (Olympic training program). After retiring from the Army he worked at Carmichael Training Systems as the director of coaching where he selected, trained and supervised the coaching staff.
Mike coached the Palmer Ridge High School XC team for one season and the Air Academy track team for two seasons. Both programs were fortunate to win state championships and had three individual state champions during his coaching tenure there. He coached over 10 athletes who received scholarships to D1 and D2 colleges.
The Hagen family moved to Breckenridge in 2018, upon which Mike coached the SMS XC Team for three years. Eva and Mike started the Summit Distance Program to provide free summer coaching to areajunior and high school runners.
Mike feels very fortunate to have begun coaching the SHS XC and Track distance runners in the Fall of 2021.
