Since you are interested in hiring a running coach you surely have some goals in mind. Goals are particularly important because they help set a direction in which to focus your efforts and specificity of training. Tell me what you hope to achieve.
EXAMPLE: 2017 NYC Marathon, 2018 London Marathon
EXAMPLE 1: I would like to complete a 1/2 Marathon under 2 hours and run the NYC Marathon next fall in honor of my mother who is a cancer survivor. EXAMPLE 2: I am registered for a NYRR 10k in October and I would like to run a personal best.
EXAMPLE: I am currently about 20lbs overweight and I would like to use running as a way to help shed the extra pounds.
EXAMPLE: If I don't see results quickly I typically become discouraged and give up. I would like to build up the courage to stick with a training plan.
Equally as important to defining your goals is recognizing and ackowledging the challenges you may face along the way. Tell me a little about the challenges you foresee which may hinder your progress.
EXAMPLE: I'm limited on time because I work 50+ hours each week and have 3 kids.
Why I want a running coach
Your success, in whatever your goals are, is my priority. To help me fully understand what you would like get out of having a coach, please tell me what would make our partnership successful to you.
Select ALL that apply.
Please elaborate on the service in which you would be interested - if not listed above.
EXAMPLES: I have been unable to maintain a steady training program on my own. I lack the motivation to run on my own so I need someone to motivate me. I need a coach for accountability. I just don't know how to train effectively.
