Coach Sallie Ferguson grew up Mansfield, TX and started running in the 6th grade. She worked all summer to get better at running, only to go back to school that year and win her first race. She's been running ever since and never looked back (ok fine, sometimes in a race she might look back to check on her competition).
Sallie has run countless races including 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and even a marathon. She looks forward to many more races in the future.
Coach Ferguson competed for the University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!) on a cross country/track and field scholarship with her specialty being the 5000 meters. She graduated with a degree in Kinesiology, which she used to teach elementary PE for several years.
She is passionate about creating spaces of belonging in the running world. She believes anyone can be a runner if they set their mind to it. If you are looking for a place for your child to safely run and train with their peers, Coach Ferguson and the Forney Flyers is place to be.
Coach Fergie resides in the Forney Area with her crazy crew of 4 kids and awesome husband. You can usually find her running around town, at the park with her kids or taking a much needed nap. She also enjoys reading, spending time with her friends and family and planning her next race.
