Not Your Average 5K

Train for a 5K and transform your life!

Does this sound like you?

  • Successful in most areas of your life…but you struggle to stay consistent with exercise.
  • Don’t consider yourself athletic…but you secretly want to be a runner.
  • Identify as plus-sized, fat, thick, overweight, or something similar.
  • Tried Couch to 5K (maybe more than once) and never made it through the whole thing.
  • Sick and tired of dreaming about running and not doing anything about it.
  • Wish you could find other women like you who are struggling with the same things.

If any of the above describes your life, we need to talk.

Because running a 5K isn't just for uber-fit people who only eat kale and chicken breasts for dinner, exercise 7 days a week, and can fit into the smallest LuluLemon sizes.

Running is for everyone.

Even you.

I know what you're thinking...

Running is just too hard.

Whenever you try it, you can't catch your breath, you look ridiculous in spandex, and let's be honest—at this age, you're too old to try something new. 

But keep thinking about it, right?

It would be awesome to be able to lace up your shoes and go for a 3 mile run whenever you feel like it.

You don't want to run a marathon—you just want to see what all the fuss is about!

But you don't want to get hurt or feel embarrassed.


Training for a 5K can transform your life, and it's a lot easier than you think.

You just need the right plan, the right coach, and the right community.

Not Your Average 5K has all of that and more.

This is not your daughter's 5K plan

In just 6 weeks, you’ll go from couch to 5K—the RIGHT way.

Feeling confident and strong instead of embarrassed and hiding.

Able to breathe and go the distance instead of wanting to die.

Staying motivated and excited instead of quitting.

I’ve tested this program on literally hundreds of women, and it works every damn time.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a beginner who just started walking regularly.

Awesome! If you’re currently able to walk 3 miles, you can do this course. You can walk as much as you want or need to in this program. There’s no requirement to run the whole thing.

Can I walk part of my 5K?

Absolutely! In fact, that’s what I recommend for most people. This course will help you figure out what the best ratio of running to walking is for you.

But what if I want to run the whole 5K?

That’s fine too! I can help you build in more running to move you toward that goal.

I don’t want to go too fast too soon.

I don’t want that for you either. This program will have you going at your own pace—there’s no requirement to change up your intervals or go any faster than you already are. We want you to be successful and proud, not injured.

It’s hot outside/It's cold outside.

I hear you. There's weather everywhere. But they run marathons in the Sahara Desert and at the South Pole. We’ll teach you how to dress and run so the heat or cold aren’t an issue—and how to master the treadmill so you can keep training in case the weather keeps you indoors.

I canceled my gym membership because I never used it. This could turn out the same way. I’ll sign up and quit before I ever get started.

That's the great thing about this class, we don't just tell you what to do, we help you shift your mindset so you can get it done. You're not on your own, you have coaches and a whole community of women just like you to help you stay focused and motivated.

I weigh 250 pounds and my brain tells me I’m too fat to run.

I can 100% assure you that at 250 you are more than ready (I weigh more than that and I’ve finished several half marathons). You can walk as much as you want or need to in this program. There’s no requirement to run the whole thing.

I don’t have enough time.

Here’s the deal. Everyone has a crazy life. 5K training doesn’t take nearly as much time as you think. If you can carve out 45 minutes three times a week you have enough time to train. Most people spend more than that on Facebook every day.

I have an injury. Is it OK to do this program?

If you’re injured, the first thing you need to do is get well. Go see your doctor, get into PT, and join the next class when you’re healed.

How is this different from your books?

This plan is based on my books, but with the added component of live coaching and support from me, the support of a like-minded community, and a ton of additional tools that are only available in my coaching programs.

I’m nervous about making the commitment. I did a 5k a few years ago with a friend but don't know if I'm motivated enough to train on my own. Will calls and online support be enough to keep me accountable?

The calls and online support are some of the tools we provide to help you learn to be accountable to yourself! One of the skills we’ll be working on is motivation and how to create it so you never have to rely on someone else to keep you going.

I’ve already done a few 5K’s and I’m past the beginner stage. Is it still OK for me to join?

If you’re already doing the distance, that’s awesome! This class can help you with some of the finer points of training as well as working on your mindset and inner mean girl.

I’ve been doing your free 30 day training course, is this the next step?

Yes! This is a perfect next step after the 30 day free training.

I’ve started and stopped a lot of 5K training courses. I don’t believe I’m motivated enough to stick with it.

Here’s the deal. Motivation is something you create, not something you have. In this class you will learn the skills to create motivation.

I travel a lot and don’t know if I’ll be able to attend the group coaching calls.

All of the training calls are recorded and posted on the members' website within 24 hours, so you don’t need to attend live to get what you need!

Where are you based (time zone)?

East coast.

When are the coaching calls?

Coaching calls are held on Tuesdays at 1pm Eastern.

Do I need any special software to attend the calls?

Coaching will be done over Zoom. Video is not mandatory, you can also join with audio only.
