Our Coaches

Diana Sanchez-Edwards

Head Coach - Red Marathon Group

Years Running:  I have been running since high school. I continued running and participated in 5k’s over the years. I’ve been involved with USA Fit Shreveport since the first year in 2008. I started as a participant and ran my first Marathon that season, Dallas White Rock! I have been hooked on distance running ever since. I have had the opportunity to coach for several years and I love it!

Number of Marathons/Half Marathons.  I have run 11 Marathons and 20+ Half Marathons.  “Do training runs count?  LOL!)

Hobbies besides running:  Riding motorcycles, spending time with family & friends, crocheting, volunteering, and enjoying life.

Favorite Races:  The Dean-Williams Memorial 5k. This is a Memorial run for Police Officers killed in the line of duty. It raises awareness and funds for people with mental and physical disabilities. It is held every year in Shreveport.  The St Jude Memphis Marathon. We all know what St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for kids. Everything about this run is amazing. I am the Captain of the LA Law Heroes Team.  The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics which kicks off the Louisiana Special Olympics Summer Games.

Favorite distance:  Love the Half!

Other:  Running has introduced me to so many awesome people from all over the Shreveport-Bossier City area.  I have made lifetime friendships and look forward to meeting new people. This year I hope to achieve my goal and run my first UltraMarathon. I look forward to training with everyone and I am thankful every day that I can continue to get out there and run. I really enjoy helping others achieve their goals. I Love it when someone crosses that finish line for the first time! #Priceless
