Club Coach – Janae Richardson

I’ve been coaching runners of all levels of running for 11+ years and I absolutely love helping others chase down their running goals. It truly brings me pure joy. Life is busy though and I’ve realized that my coaching impact has limitations because if I want to do a really thorough job of helping the athletes I’m coaching then I have to put a limit on how many I can directly coach. Then the Utah Running Club idea emerged and I realized that with the help of Utah Running Club Captains I can help coach hundreds of runners across the state of Utah. This got me excited! Here is how it works…We have hand picked amazing Club Captains and then I have mapped out weeks of workouts. After receiving detailed instruction from me, each week the Club Captains will facilitate these workouts with their running groups. You get quality workouts and support as you navigate the running world and I get increased satisfaction as I get to see more fellow runners “Dream Big. Train Together. Finish Strong!”
