RUN COACHING FAQS

I am so excited that you have invested in yourself + your running with Run Coaching by The Concrete Runner! I cannot wait to help you reach your goals this year! Below are the expectation and deliverables you can expect to receive from me each month you are in the program. Feel free to email me any questions you have about this expectations document!

Coaching is a partnership between the athlete and the coach. It’s extremely important that you read this section and are completely comfortable with the expectations that come with coaching. We want you to be successful and it’s important that both the athlete and the coach are committed to this partnership to reach that goal.
