Frequently Asked Questions
If you still don't see your question answered after reading the FAQ's, contact Tammy!
Do I have to live in DC to train with you?
Nope! Individual coaching is all virtual, and while group coaching has runs in DC, the majority of the program is also virtual and can be done from anywhere.
I'm not training [or planning to train] for a race. Can I still be coached?
Yep! If you’re in the DC area and looking for in-person coaching, the Tuesday Speed + Strength sessions are your best bet. If you want something more individualized to hit your goals or can’t make it to the Tuesday practices, individual coaching is your best option.
I'm not a fast runner. Will this be a good fit?
Yep! Coaching is for ALL levels of runners. If you attend practices in DC, there will a variety of paces, especially on Tuesdays. The workouts are differentiated to meet everyone’s fitness level and goals. It is a welcoming group and we all support each other, regardless of pace.
How does payment work?
For group and individual coaching, you pay for your first month when you sign up and then you are billed monthly for the number of months you select in your intake survey. Customized training plans are paid in full after the consultation and prior to receiving the plan. Tuesday Speed + Strength sessions are paid in-full when you sign up.
Why do you require a 3 month minimum for coaching?
Becoming a faster, stronger, and smarter athlete does not happen overnight, as there is no silver bullet to becoming a better runner. Working with me for at least 3 months will help you build your training in an effective manner to lessen the chance of injury and increase your speed, strength, and running knowledge base. If you become injured while training, I will work with you through that to help you maintain a base level of fitness while rehabbing.
Do you meet for one-on-one sessions?
Yes, I am available to meet for one-on-one sessions. More information can be found here. Note that one-on-one sessions are not personal training sessions and are focused on running form and strength for runners.
When do I start?
It depends on the program! Individual coaching begins on an agreed upon date in the consultation call. Group coaching begins on the date you select at checkout, at least 3 months prior to your goal race. Tuesday Speed + Strength sessions again on Tuesday, January 8th, but you can sign up at any time. Your first week will be the first Tuesday after you register.
