Buffy has been active in the local running community since the 90’s when she moved here from San Diego. She has competed in everything from the 1500m to the marathon. Inspired by the birth of her first child (now 15) she brought Stroller Strides to Hawaii where she was able to combine her love of teaching, exercise and motherhood! She is thrilled to be able to continue to promote a healthy lifestyle, now running side by side with her kiddos!
Pete has been running for over 40 years. He started his running career before kindergarten and he always wanted to be the fastest runner in his class. He believes that running and racing challenges him and keep him physically fit. Also through running he meets great new people (he met his wife, coach Buffy Whiteman, through running), he can explore new places, and unlike many other sports he compete in the same events as the world’s best. His favorite part about coaching other people is to use his running experience and knowledge to help other runners reach their goals. It doesn’t matter what the goal is. The goal could be following a regular exercise program, running a distance without stopping, or setting a 10K PR.
