ABOUT

Run Intended was created by Amanda Shannon Verrengia. 

I'm a certified personal trainer and Sports Performance Training specialist through the American Council on Exercise (ACE), and a certified run coach through the USA Track and Field (USATF) and the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). I specialize in strength training for endurance athletes and race preparation/training for runners of all levels.  Check out the coaching page for more information on training & coaching. 

A runner since childhood, I've gained experience both personally and professionally in the running world. An advocate for a healthy, unified community, I am the race director for the Stride for Pride 5K

The Run Intended store was born through the desire to create unique, inspiring items that express who we are as runners and to celebrate those that make our sport great. 

I can often be found pushing the double stroller during a run with my husband, Anthony, and our two sons, Oscar (3) and Finnegan (1). I adore a good book and an even better latte. Our 4 cats remind me to relax and take time to sleep and our 2 dogs remind me that beauty is literally right outside of our door. It won't take much to convince me to pack up and head out on an adventure. I love to travel and have a lengthy lists of "must sees."  I'm a fierce supporter of women, small businesses and my family. 

I hope we can connect soon!
