Ask Coach Tami what she loves about being the coach of the St. Cloud/Sartell MOTR group and she’ll quickly tell you it’s seeing her members reach their goals.
Tami had an eye on Moms on the Run for nearly a decade. First, hearing about the Forest Lake group and then learning about the Maple Grove group while she ran in a Moms on the Run 5K. But both were over an hour from her home near St. Cloud.
Then she learned about franchising opportunities. So instead of going to another Moms on the Run location, she decided to bring a MOTR location to her. In December 2014 she opened the St. Cloud group and has been running with her team ever since.

Whether recovering from an illness or after a long run, Tami is quick to advocate for staying active. She knows a healthy body and mind helps keep your resistance up to fight off viruses and infections.
While motivating her team and helping others maintain their best health, Tami is gearing up for her next race. She is currently training for Grandma’s Marathon in June, so she’s fitting in the long runs when she’s not coaching or working. She’s careful to mix in tempo and threshold runs, speed work, hills, and intervals to improve her own endurance and speed. And while she enjoys any length of run, her ultimate goal is to someday run an ultra race.
