About Blue Fire

Hi! My name is Mary Gandee and I'm the owner and coach at Blue Fire Running. One of my greatest joys in life is joining people in their health and fitness journeys! Each adventure is an experience as unique as we are; filled with highs and lows, growth, and learning. 

I began coaching in 2009 when I realized how important these journeys are to my own life, and wanted to share with others. I have had the pleasure of coaching people to start and finish lines from their first 5ks and sprint triathlons, to marathon and Ironman distance events.
