To Be Coached or Not To Be Coached?

-

In her Monday New York Times column, Gina Kolata looks at three different types of people: those who enjoy working with coaches, those who don’t, and coaches themselves. (Fun fact: Anyone can claim to be a coach. There’s no certification process required.)

She names a number of runners who’ve chosen to work alone, including Olympic great Joan Benoit Samuelson and American half-marathon record-holder Ryan Hall. Benoit Samuelson says she was unable to find a coach whose personality worked with hers, while Hall cites the flexibility of self-coaching as his reason for going solo.
