Running seems pretty straightforward. Why do I need a coach?
Putting on a pair of running shoes and heading out the door is the easiest thing to do in the world. However, running is a sport of repetitious impact, with a high risk of injury. A coach can help you develop the strength, balance, and agility your body needs to keep running for years to come. More conventionally, a coach will help you figure out when and what to do for your long runs, workouts, and -- also important -- rest days. Your coach is accountable to you, and in turn keeps you accountable to the sport. In the grand scheme, a coach guides you in your journey to convert goals into reality. Everyone, from beginners to elite, can benefit from a coach.

Can you help me lose weight?
As a coaching company, our priority is helping you become stronger, fitter, and faster. We are not qualified to prescribe specific diet or caloric recommendations. What we can do is help you stay accountable to a regular and varied fitness regimen, which is a cornerstone of healthy weight loss. We can also address general nutrition requirements and recommendations as they pertain to runners of different demographics.
Do I have to race?
We love racing! It’s thrilling, gratifying, and promotes community. We find racing helpful for setting and achieving specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, time-sensitive (SMART) goals. Although we encourage all of our runners to race, it is never required.
