Each Endurance class includes dynamic stretching, warm up, cardio with walking, run/walk intervals, cool down, static stretching and a small amount of post run bodyweight strength. ALL paces and ALL fitness levels welcome.

At our weekly Destination Run, our Jacksonville-Mandarin, St Johns and Nocatee locations come together for our long run! We will break into groups according to fitness level and walk or run at our current fitness level.

Amy, coach and owner of Jacksonville-Mandarin, Nocatee and St. Johns, running in the sun with a smile and Moms on the Run visor


Coach Amy started MOTR Jax in September 2017 with the goal of helping women to get moving and to feel good in their own skin. Her love of running started after having her son in 2010 and struggling to get the baby weight off. Although her mom was a long time marathoner, Amy thought running was stupid and boring…until she lost all the baby weight and fell in love with running!

More than10 years later, Amy has ran 20 marathons, 50+ half marathons and numerous shorter distance races.

​Coach Amy is your MOTR Jacksonville-Mandarin Head Coach. She’ll be the one who’ll call you when you don’t show up, encourage you to stay consistent, and help you navigate any aches and pains along the way. She’s known for being tough – but encouraging – as she pushes you out of your comfort zone to help you reach your health and fitness goals! ​

​Amy’s favorite quote: “Hard work is fun! There’s something unsatisfying about things that come too easily.”


Tiffany has been with MOTR since the spring of 2018 and has improved leaps and bounds in her consistency and dedication to her health and fitness. She is the consummate support system for our women and is always smiling and taking fun selfies.

​Tiffany shared, “I am beyond grateful and blessed to be a coach with Moms on the Run. These amazing women have inspired and motivated me to become a better version of myself and I am excited to continue to support, encourage and celebrate each of you as you reach and surpass your goals!” ​

​Tiffany’s  favorite quote: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!” ​


Coach KC is 67, married for 34 years, has 3 kids and 7 grandchildren!

She began running years ago with her daughter Samantha while at the same time maintaining a horrible smoking habit. In 2005, she decided to train for her first marathon in order to quit smoking for good. She ran many 5Ks, Half Marathons and 4 marathons before giving up running for about 10 years due to lung issues and an injury.

In 2019 her good friend and our St Johns Head Coach, Tiffany DeTardo, talked her into visiting a Moms on the Run social event where she met Ginny, a member who said “just come out for one run with us”.

The next day she was at a long run and from that moment she was hooked! KC loves what MOTR represents and has done for other women and herself. She knows that running will keep her healthy so she can be around a lot longer for her grandchildren.

Coach KC’s goal is to do for others what other MOTR coaches have done for her; help you find, or bring back, your love of running and living a healthy lifestyle. KC has a lot more races in her future and she is looking forward to lots more friends whose lives she can touch at MOTR Nocatee!
