Coach Ruth Ascalon


Hey! My name is Ruth Ascalon and I’m 21 years old. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and found my love for running when I started college as a way to de-stress. I have ran multiple races since, and am currently training for longer distances!

As I continued my own training, I became obsessed with increasing my knowledge especially in gear, proper running form and gait analysis.

In early 2017, I started working with one of San Francisco’s Top 10 local running stores called, “A Runner’s Mind” and filled my days getting to know the running community as the Assistant Manager and Social Media Director. There, I spent time with runners at all levels-- from the true beginner to seasoned marathoner.

Despite the varying abilities I encountered, I found a common ground that everyone could benefit pursuing more knowledge of-- The awareness of training smart. I knew right away that I wanted to be a trusted resource to lean on, so I decided to strengthen my education by earning my RRCA and VDOT O2 coaching certifications!

As your coach, I am committed to helping you reach your goals with accountability, tough love and most importantly… having FUN! Happy running!
