Meet your coach!

Dede Schneider

Growing up running was part of Dede’s conditioning for dance, gymnastics, tennis and the fierce sport of badminton. As most coaches do, running was used as a punishment so she never really enjoyed it. During college she found a love for running but only ran shorter distances to keep her mind and body balanced. In 1998 she ran her first marathon. After that race she was hooked. Since then she has run numerous 5k, 10k, and half marathons. Dede joined Snail’s Pace in 2010. In 2011 she was invited to be an assistant coach and then co-coach. She loves interacting and running in the group settings. The energy the group produces is contagious and make running enjoyable. She never has a boring run. Her coaching goal is to help you believe in yourself. By joining Snails, you will be able to complete the goal you set for yourself.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
