Have you thought about a running coach?

Hey, runners of the internet —- guess what!!! Have I got an exciting piece of news for you!

Coach Patrick and I have teamed up because I’ve made myself the first unofficial ambassador of Good Fit Coaching! 😊

Whether your goals are to run your first 5k, or PR your marathon time and everything in between, he’s a great coach to help hone in on your needs and provide you custom plans and support.

Why work with a coach when there are training plans online? I used to just do all my training from free things online but working with Coach Patrick has totally changed who I am as a runner. Working with a coach provides me real time ability to have someone who sets plans for me that are realistic to my schedule and abilities, but also push me a little further than if I was training on my own. He listens to my fears and my doubts, but also lets me have running related laughs and encourages me to be the best athlete I can be. It is great to have support, receive feedback, and have someone to bounce my struggles and my celebrations with. In fact, he is almost always the person I text first after a race!

I’m excited to share that if you’ve been toying with the idea of working with a running coach, that he is offering a discount on online coaching, available to anyone even if you aren’t local to where I live! If you register for online coaching and use discount code VanessaF2F will get you $10 off a month for at least your first three months.

If you want more information or have questions, feel free to send me a message, or check out https://www.goodfitcoaching.com

Cheers runners!

  1. I love your posts and they are so uplifting. I wish I could get my head around it all mentally. How did you get focused for the first time? I am just feeling overwhelmed and that it is a daunting task to get this old body moving. I turn 51 tomorrow and have let myself go. My kids are 25, 21, and 18 and they have always come first. It is now time to change that. I picture myself running and then think, “people will see me trying to do this and I am so out of shape”. I worry about what people think even when I don’t know them.

    How do I start and get the positive outlook you have?





    1. Hi Gretchen! It took me a long time to really wrap my head around just being active for me, and letting go of the other things those around me may be thinking about me. I know that’s their issue! I remind myself why I’m doing what I am doing. For me, being active is my time to regroup, be alone and recharge my batteries. It helps me to want to keep going!
