A common misconception people have regarding running coaches is that they are reserved for elite or professional athletes, or those very serious runners that only want to be competitive. That is just not the case. You’d hire a personal trainer to help you learn to lift weights, or develop a better strength training workout, right? Well, think of a running coach as your personal running trainer. ANY runner can benefit from having a coach.
A coach is going to design a program based on your current fitness, which means it’s going to take your health history, your injury history, and your running experience into consideration. The program will also reflect your specific goals regarding training paces, race times, how much time you have before your race, and your own personal schedule.
Life also has a tendency to throw us curveballs, which can interfere with the training process. Sometimes you get sick or you lose focus and motivation. Sometimes, you want to improve but you just don’t know how to get there.
Plans that you find online or in books are a good starting point, but they’re not tailored to your unique lifestyle, goals, abilities, and situation. By having a personalized plan, you increase your chances of having a great training and racing experience while remaining healthy and injury free.

By following the plan designed specifically for me, I was able to improve by 51 minutes from my first marathon to my second. That improvement occurred on the very difficult Mount Desert Island course also, only showing how well my body responded to Moe's coaching and guidance.
As a result of working with Moe I have never felt as comfortable or prepared for a marathon. I shaved 24 minutes off my PR and I qualified for Boston.
