Jaime Barbieri Head Coach

My name is Jaime Barbieri but you can call me Coach Jaime. This is my 6th year with WeRock. I was first introduced to WeRock when my neice participated in the program in 2011. My kids watched as she accomplished this amazing goal of completing a marathon. This lit a spark in them and they couldn’t wait to be in middle school to participate. My oldest daughter completed there years with WeRock and is now is starting her third year on the ANHS Cross Country team . My youngest is in 8th grade ready to complete her third Marathon this coming season. There is nothing like watching these kids work so hard and cross the finish line at the Marathon or Half Marathon. They inspire me to work harder. I am so excited to be a part of the WeRock team again this year. My goal this year is to work with the kids and help them achieve their personal running goals.

It’s always fun to hear a coach’s race history!

I was a sprinter in high school running on the varisty team all four years. I didn’t pick up distance running until about 10 years ago. I have been running various races over the past 10yrs with my husband and kids. We have run everything from 5k to Marathons. My oldest even did an Ultra Marathon completing 51 miles. My youngest will be attempting the same Ulta Marathon after this season. I also enjoy doing Ragnar Relay races and the Gladiator Runs with my husband.

My favorite race that WeROCK will run during the season?

By far my favorite race is the OC Marathon. Getting to be on course and watch these kids accomplish what they have been training for all season is so inspiring and rewarding. I can’t wait to run the OC Marathon again this season!
