For many runners, especially us “regular runners”, the thought of working with a running coach may seem like a luxury.
While it’s true that hiring a coach is not a requirement, there are many benefits for working with a running coach no matter how much experience you (do or don’t) have, and regardless of how fast you run.
But how do you go about choosing the right running coach for you?
Too often, the decision is made based on price and/or name recognition. I would argue that those factors should be considered, but they shouldn’t be the primary reason that one coach is hired over another.
When it comes to choosing the right running coach for you, the most important thing to consider is how you and the potential coach get along. Because the better you get along, the better your chances are of success.
No matter how famous the coach may be.
