Running Coaching Giveaway!

Can anyone else believe that it's almost time to start training for spring races? I certainly can't! My next half-marathon is in March, which means I'll probably  start training for that in a few weeks! I'm excited but also a little nervous about the weather. At least I'm not training for  a full marathon like last winter!

Have you started to plan your spring races? Ever considered working with a running coach? I became certified as a running coach through RRCA last June, but spent the rest of the year focusing mostly on my own running. I did help one of my friends train for her first half-marathon (which she completed, in her goal time!) Now I want to shift my focus more on helping others reach their running goals!

I decided to host a giveaway involving coaching services as a way to get started! I'm giving away either a training plan for a specific race (up to 18 weeks) or 6 weeks of individual, online coaching services  geared towards a specific race (which would include a 6 week plan and weekly check-ins). If you win the giveaway, you can choose which option you want!

Also, if you sign up for any of my coaching services by December 31st, 2014, I'll send you a free personalized "training kit"- with things like running related books, running fuel, and other fun accessories. 

(If you win the giveaway, or buy a coaching service, you could also give the coaching service to someone else as a holiday gift!)

      Thanks Michele! It took me long enough but hopefully I will finally get started with coaching:)

    That really is a great idea. I've got a 1/2 in FL in Feb, just found out I got into the NYC 1/2 in March which I'm so excited for. Then a half each month until July. Looking to do my first marathon maybe in the fall. Any good 1st marathon suggestions? Trying to beat my 1/2 marathon time and get under 1:40. I've managed to do it 3 times on the treadmill at 1:35 but can't outside...ugh. A running coach sounds like a great idea!

      Wow first of all I am so impressed that you were able to run a 1:35 half marathon, on a treadmill, not in a race! That is awesome!
      I think the Philly Marathon is a grew one! It was my first 3 years ago, and I ran it again this November.

      That sounds a lot like my plan for next year...half in the spring and full in the fall...and yes lets please get 100% healthy before then!:)

      I ended up traveling to Cape Cod to take it since the one weekend they offered a local one I wasn't able to go. Sounds like you already have a busy 2015 planned for running!

      Thanks! I think that you would be an awesome client because you are so aware of what is best for YOU as a runner. A coach can guide you and make suggestions, but I think its important for runners to also use their best judgement and not just do something because a coach said to. Good luck!

    I have never worked with a running coach, but I would love to! I finished my second marathon this fall, but I was injured the last five weeks before, so I was not ideally prepared... I hope to avoid this for my next one, and improve my time!

    I plan to run the Bay Breeze half in February and then will look into other ones! I think I am almost ready to do another full!

      Its awesome that you want to be able to help others with all of those things! I have heard of a lot of people who do the RRCA coach and personal training to go with it. I might consider that at some point, too!

  4. Awesome! (I'm totally entering.) I keep waffle-ing on what marathon to do this spring... I've almost settled on the LA Marathon (so I don't have to travel). But I also want to run the Great Race half which is two weeks later... So many races! Are you running the RnR DC half in March? I'm sorely tempted to come back and run that one again one of these days!

      Haha I completely understand! Not everyone wants a running coach, even for free! But thanks so much for you support!

      Thanks Laura! While I am not at all qualified to coach something like that, I would love to support you in any way I can!

      I was certified through RRCA which I think is a great program. The classes fill up quickly but you can sign up for email updates so you get notified when a new class opens up. I ended up traveling to take my class but I thought it was worth it!

      Great goals!! Its nice to have a general timeline of races, even if its really far in advance. I am feeling a little lost with no marathons planned at this point!

      Well I wouldn't say I "specialize" in anything because I am only beginning coaching, but I would be happy to help anyone at any pace! When I helped my friend and my sister train for half marathons their only goal was to finish so we didn't worry about pace at all. Arizona sounds like a great place to run a winter race!

    After a really busy work season, I've been so unmotivated to get out there and run! But my current, vague goals for 2015 are to do a fall marathon and maybe a couple of halfs. I'm hoping that actually signing up for those races will give me the push I need!

      That sounds great, and usually once the race is official its easier to get motivated!

  6. I've never worked with a running coach but I think it would be really helpful. I'm running the LA Marathon in March and might do a fall race, but haven't decided yet. I only took one month between running LA 2014 and training for my fall race and then started training for LA again two weeks after that, so I think it might be good to take some time "off" next year...

      I know what you mean...I think Im gonna take some time off from doing a full marathon this spring and wait until next fall to do another. Its nice to cut back the mileage a bit once in a while!

  7. Awesome giveaway! I've never worked with a running coach before but I would love to! I'm considering getting my own RRCA coaching certification and would want to experience it from the client side before becoming a coach.

    My 2015 running goals are to get as close as possible to a 1:40 half marathon. I ran my first half marathon this November and finished in 1:46, so I know with the right training and discipline my goal is possible!

      That is an awesome goal! I am also planning to work towards breaking 1:40 this year. I just ran a 1:43 without really training (I was training for a full marathon) so I am feeling pretty good about it!
      The RRCA training is really great- I just completed it in June but they fill up really fast so I ended up taking it in Cape Cod and making it into a mini vacation:)

    I'm hoping to break 1:45 in the half marathon next year! And maybe get faster at some shorter races, too. Training for my first marathon seems to have seriously slowed down my legs.

      Awesome goals! And I kno what you mean about marathon training slowing down your legs. You will get your speed back with a little training!
