Hi! My name is Maurine Dobson and I’m a runner, walker, and coach from Tulsa, Oklahoma. For over a decade, I’ve been helping the local community achieve their running and walking goals – no matter what their pace or distance.
In 2016, my journey changed when I discovered the Jeff Galloway Run-Walk-Run method. I was so inspired by this new approach to running that I decided to get certified as a Program Director and launched Tulsa Galloway on September 1, 2018. We are a part of the international Jeff Galloway Training Program. Now, I’m proud to be able to share my knowledge with people of all ages and abilities who want to reach their running or walking goals in a safe and supportive way.
Assistant Program Directors:
Hi, I’m Donna Moen. 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 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.
Pace Group Leaders:
Hi, I’m Dustie Jobe.
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.
I started using the Galloway method as a fluke back in 2017, all because I wanted to run a route that went to Cry Baby Hill one evening. I mean, who wants to run hills, let alone the mother of all hills? Initially, I was hesitant about having to stop and start every few seconds during my run. However, with Maurine’s guidance and expertise on the Galloway method, she made me fall in love with it as she explained how and why it works along with its numerous benefits. So when Maurine started Tulsa Galloway in 2018, I was thrilled to join the program. My association with this worldwide training program also gave me an opportunity to meet some amazing people after moving to my adopted home of Richmond, VA, where I lived for over three years.
There are so many different reasons why people join Tulsa Galloway — setting personal records, increasing running distances, and more. But for me, the best part of being a member is all about the relationships. Every Saturday morning, it’s a reunion with my favorite people as we hit the roads and trails come rain or shine, wind or humidity! We laugh together and support each other through tough miles and celebrate our victories together over breakfast afterwards. This amazing group of humans is a real source of inspiration and I highly encourage you to become part of our family!
I’m Diana Hanson 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.
Greetings! I’m Betty Cox and have been logging miles on foot for about 6 years – it’s been an absolute blast, but due to health issues, I’ve made the transition to being a walking coach. We’re a convivial bunch of walkers from all walks of life, some here to get healthy while others are recovering from an injury or just starting out in their fitness journey. No matter your story, we always strive to challenge ourselves and make progress day-by-day! Come join us as we stride around Tulsa; you’re guaranteed a good time as we chat away and even solve the problems of the world while walking!
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!
