Hello, Chattanooga!

Let us tell you a little more about ourselves:

We are a specialty run coaching service with a small group of elite runners who have also developed ourselves as USATF, RRCA, and ACE certified coaches.  We can help you balance your training to make sure you're at your best on race day.  As for the basics of training and where you're at right now, we collect a questionnaire at sign-up and make sure we understand who you are.  We go over those to see what your needs are then follow up any additional specifics.

 

We collect the data from our runners on their training and their history as runners, then use that information to tailor personal running schedules for them.  We write the schedules by hand every week then post them on our website in the runner's dashboard.  The dashboard is totally private.  The workouts appear on your calendar and you will also have a full array of messaging and commenting tools to give us feedback on the workouts.

 

Our decision to write workouts by hand is meant to fit into your life and compliment the needs of your body in a way that normal training plans never can.  For example, there's a bunch of couch to 5k apps which provide an online coaching tool.  But they use a set database of workouts which force you into a group that 'sort of' meets your needs.  This mass-coaching style often leads to injuries and rarely produces peak results for the runner.

 

In our system we pay attention to the details.  As a result our runners show significant improvements in their performance and in general, are below the average for frequency of injuries.

 

You also have the power to cancel your participation at any time with no penalties or commitments.  

 

If you have any questions we would love to walk you through the process.  Please, email us at info@runninglane.com, or if you prefer, give us a call at 940-206-8624 (Coach Will).  I hope you'll give us a shot and of course if you have any more questions we will be happy to answer them.

 

Thank you!

I was a 2:27 marathoner that seemed to have hit the ceiling. It seemed that I couldn't break that time. I ran a 2:20 marathon this past fall and a big reason for that success was due to coaching and guidance. Coaching is like having a second set of eyes on a problem.

As an active duty service member we are taught "Attention to Detail." I was focusing on my stronger attributes while neglecting my weaker ones. My personal coach pointed a few things out and changed a few of my workouts and like magic; I smashed my PR in the marathon.
