Leadership

Meet Our Team

Since September 1, 2018, Tulsa Galloway has been helping people of all ages and abilities reach their running and walking goals through its Galloway Run-Walk-Run method. This evidence-based program has helped thousands of people to become regular runners and walkers, while avoiding injuries. With experienced leadership and a supportive community, Tulsa Galloway can help you too!

Program Director:

Maurine Dobson

Hi, my name is Maurine and I’m an excellent coach who has been serving the Tulsa, Oklahoma community for over ten years. I started my coaching career in 2012 after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Since then, I have coached numerous groups from 5K to marathon distance and completed 94 races in 13 states! I discovered the Galloway Run-Walk-Run method in 2016 and it has completely changed the way I approach running. I’m excited to bring this training program to Tulsa and help even more people achieve their running goals!

Assistant Program Directors:

Donna Moen

Hi, I’m Donna. I’m a bariatric-athlete and I started running at the age of 40. I began training for triathlons when I was 49 to encourage a “full body” cross training regime and got hooked. I participate in triathlons for “whole body wellness” but not necessarily to compete. However, I did win an age group bid to nationals last year.

I have numerous running, triathlon, and Tulsa Tough medals. I’ve trained for all distances up to and including marathon in running, and all distances up to and including Olympic in triathlons. I’m currently training for a 70.3 triathlon. As a bariatric-athlete, I work closely with my nutritionist to ensure proper nutrition and hydration strategies for success at long distances and multisport. 

Gretchen Mosley

Gretchen is a fun-loving fitness enthusiast who loves nothing more than pushing herself to her limits and encouraging others to do the same! She began running in 2011, training for her first 5K, and has continued running consistently since. Gretchen has run two marathons, a 25k, and numerous half marathons.

Gretchen is a huge proponent of group fitness and building friendships through training. She feels it promotes accountability and increases joy. Gretchen attributes her running friendships with pushing her outside her comfort zone. This helps her to show up to do hard things. And enriches her life in immeasurable ways.

Coaches:

Dustie Jobe

Hi, I’m Dustie.

I started running in my late thirties and have been hooked ever since. In 2014, I was introduced to the Galloway method and have used it to train for and complete 15 half marathons, 4 marathons, and 1 ultra-marathon. My one-mile personal best time is 7:30.

I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with crossing the finish line, and I’m always looking for new challenges to keep me motivated. Running has become a huge part of my life, and I’m grateful to have found a hobby that I can enjoy for years to come.

Diana Hanson

I’m Diana and I’ve been training using the Galloway method since January 2018. I’ve completed 8 half marathons with a personal best improvement of 15 minutes in less than a year. I’ve also completed 3 marathons! My mantra is “Trust the training and enjoy the journey!” because I believe that the process is just as important as the outcome.

I got into running after years of playing soccer. I was looking for a new challenge and something that would allow me to stay fit and active. A friend introduced me to the Galloway method and I was hooked! I love how this method allows you to run injury-free and enjoy the process.

Denise Rounds

Denise has been a runner for over 10 years. She started with run-only training and achieved her first 5K virtually before a friend suggested they run the Tulsa Run together. That became Denise’s first completed race. Denise continued to run but had injuries off and on and was looking for answers. As a physical therapist, injuries were not her goal. Denise found the Jeff Galloway Run-Walk-Run method. She bought Jeff’s books, followed his website, listened to podcasts that featured him, and trained using his apps for 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon.

Denise was a member of Jeff Galloway’s virtual customized training program. This was the eventual connection to Tulsa Galloway’s Program Director, Maurine Dobson, who was also training remotely via e-coaching.

Denise has completed multiple 5K’s and 10K’s, 3 half marathons, and 2 relay marathons. She run-walks for overall health, fitness, flexibility, stamina, and balance to enjoy time on her feet as a home health and acute post-op orthopedic physical therapist. Denise is the mother of an adult child who has run for decades, grandmother to two new young runners, and is a friend to the ‘back of the pack’ Galloway members in Tulsa.

Support:

Dwight Dobson

Going at it alone can be hard. The most important thing runners need for success is a strong support system! Dwight provides first-class support to our group every Saturday with hydration, nutrition, first aid, transportation, and encouragement. Dwight is like a lighthouse in the midst of the miles with his “aid station buffet” and high-fives. He helps our runners reach their goals happier and healthier!
