Welcome to Twin Cities Runner Coaching! My name is Nate Leckband, and I'm offering training plans for new or experienced runners. Depending on your needs, I can provide the following:
|City of Lakes Half Marathon, 2016|
- Advice on well-established training plans, coaching, and methods
- Answer questions about one or more training plans or online coaching programs
- Compare multiple training plans with pros and cons
- Create a custom training schedule suitable to your running preferences and goals
- Meet for individual or group sessions at a local track or trail.
I keep up-to-date on the latest research and trends in running, and believe that running can improve your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Runners I've worked find a variety of reasons to run, such as:
- Improving their physical and mental health
- Running a race for the first time
- Becoming more competitive or setting a new best time
- Getting motivated and energized in life
Feel free to contact me with any questions using the contact form on the right side of the page, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fees are on a sliding scale depending on your needs, and start as low as $8.00 — less than the cost of a good book on training.
