Why hire a running coach?

Having a running coach is not limited to elite athletes. Many runners, especially beginners, can benefit from a customized training plan. Besides helping you improve, ongoing feedback can help you stay motivated. Having professional guidance can also minimize injury, help you train smarter and provide accountability.
