COACH DEB LENSING

I started the Waconia Moms on the Run franchise in 2015.  I thought it would be a great way to start a little side hustle by doing something that I really believed in – exercise and moms taking care of themselves. 

Little did I know the amazing women this group would attract and how much it would impact my life.  I truly believe running is much like life and by doing it you get stronger mentally and physically. 

I am so grateful for all the women that I have met through the years and for what each one of them brings to the group.  We run, we talk, we laugh – it is therapeutic all while getting our exercise.  

COACH ANN SCHULAR

Hi my name is Ann Schular!  I have been a coach for Waconia Moms on the Run from the start!  I am grateful for this group.  As a mom of 3 children, life gets so crazy!!! 

This group has kept my joy of running going through the wonderful friendships and accountability!  Go Waconia Wonder Women!!!

COACH KATIE

Hi- I am Coach Katie!  Honestly, I grew up as a gymnast NOT a runner.  A long distance run for me was the vault runway.  My favorite part about collegiate gymnastics was my TEAM and the lifelong friendships I developed.  I have found my team again with Waconia MOTR…I literally can’t wait to see these incredible women every practice!

And I have fallen in love with running.  I run because I can, I run because it keeps me healthy, I run because it is challenging and I run to show my children how important it is to stay healthy their entire lives.

If you are nervous to join us…”What if I can’t keep up?”  “I haven’t run for years.”  ” I have never run.”  Put those fears aside, you absolutely can do it…take it your pace!! Many of us had those same fears.  You will have the chance to run with a group of fantastic, inspiring and encouraging women – WONDER WOMEN.  You will be on a team & I promise we can have fun together!!

COACH KRISTINE GREER

Hello – I am Coach Kristine!  I enjoy living an active lifestyle and I participated in a variety of different sports growing up but I had never really explored the sport of running until I joined Moms on the Run.  Since that time, I have pushed myself to run distances and races that I never thought were possible, all while creating new friendships and developing a true passion for running.  What I love most about MOTR is that it is a group of motivated and positive women that will support you on your running journey – whatever level it may be at.

I run to test my own limits, inspire other women to push their own boundary, socialize with my friends in MOTR and to set an example for my children on how important it is for self-care and a healthy lifestyle.

COACH KATHRYN NULL

As a stay-at-home mom, I really enjoy getting out for a run – whether its solo ‘me’ time, or time to socialize with other women.  Moms on the Run has been a great way for me to learn a new community through both friendships and exploring the area with running.

year-round programming

SPRING AND SUMMER: SIGNATURE TRAINING

Our signature training program lets you attend classes from 1 to 5 times per week. We strongly recommend choosing an interval class at least once a week, which includes a higher level of structure and support. From walkers to runners, women will start at their own level and progress throughout the season.

FALL: STRENGTH + CARDIO BOOT CAMP

Our strength and cardio boot camp offers a variety of workout options to help you get fit. We’ll help maximize your metabolism by providing run/walk high intensity interval training (HIIT) at your level. Enhance your fitness level by improving strength, muscle tone, speed and agility.

WINTER: POLAR RUN AND INDOOR TRAINING

Our Polar run offers you a way to maintain the running endurance you built up during the summer and fall, while staying accountable and motivating during the long, cold winter months. We also host virtual and indoor strength-training classes.

MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON TRAINING PLANS

Moms on the Run offers training programs and social media groups to current customers who are training for a marathon or half marathon.

Our training plans have been designed by our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson.
