Meet your owner and coach!
Jenna Allerson is the proud owner and coach of the Apple Valley and Farmington Moms on the Run locations. Jenna first became involved with Moms on the Run in 2016 when she was a member of the Burnsville location. Jenna fell in love with running, the accountability, and the support that Moms on the Run provided.
Fast forward four years, Jenna continued to run and became a certified holistic health coach and will soon be a certified group fitness instructor. In 2020, Jenna decided to leave her full-time marketing position to pursue an opportunity to work for Moms on the Run nationally as their Marketing Manager. A short 10 months later, Jenna decided to invest in the company by purchasing the Apple Valley and Farmington locations.
Jenna lives on the border of Lakeville, Apple Valley, and Rosemount with her husband Matt, two sons Owen (6) and August (3), and fur baby Lucy.

meet your Head Coach!
Coach Veronica lives in Rosemount with her husband and three kiddos (well, two kiddos - one is in college), and their dog and two cats. She is a certified holistic health coach and certified group fitness instructor. She LOVES all things health & fitness!
Veronica has been a health & fitness enthusiast since she was a kid when her favorite class in school was Phy Ed (yep, she was the one training for the physical fitness test)! ;)
She has done many races over the years ranging from 5k's to an Ultra-Marathon to a Ragnar Relay. Her most recent running adventures have been on the trails.
She is so excited to start her second year with MOTR and be part of this amazing group!
meet coach margarita!
Margarita lives on the boarder of Rosemount and Apple Valley with her husband, Mark, of 17 years and their children Valery (21) and Alex (16). She is a Master Level social worker and works full time for Hennepin County as an adult protection investigator.
Margarita has always been active and did ballet for many years. She enjoyed ice skating and cross country skiing with her family growing up. She also participated in ballroom dancing prior to college.
Margarita began running about 16 years ago when she was still new to the US and did not know much about gyms and running groups. Since then she's ran various distances such as 5Ks, 10ks, several half marathons and one full Twin Cities Marathon in 2017. She's been coaching MOTR since 2017 and have met some amazing women whom she continues to admire and whose company brings her so much joy and happiness.
Her most recent (for the past two years) obsession has been CrossFit. She attends five times per week while continues to run and coach with MOTR on the weekends.

meet assistant coach heidi!
I live in Farmington with my husband of 25 years. We have three kids (ages 17, 18, and 21) and 2 fur babies. I have been a Special Education teacher for 28 years and coached both Track & Field and Cross Country for about 18 of those years.
I've always been a runner and have found that it is a great stress reliever, as well as a way to connect with others who love running. We are a fun group! I have run everything from 5Ks to Half Marathons to Ragnar Relays.
I just joined the MOTR group, and I am super excited to be an assistant coach and not only participate in all of the great activities, but also have the chance to support new and current runners!
