Coach: Kristen Watkins

I have been married for almost 28 yrs. A mom to my son Rebuma and daughter Chaltu. My husband, Duane and I are new empty nesters and learning how to live as a couple again!! We find ourselves at the local breweries, spending a lot time running or at the gym or binge watching intense shows. I love encouraging others and talking people into running races with me. Strength training is my 2nd love to running and could spend hours doing kettlebell activities! I coach the half- marathon group and find joy in their achievements.


Virtual Training

We also offer virtual training options for half marathon training. You can either purchase a training plan or sign up for monthly virtual training with access to an expert coach.

Description

The BWC Women’s Training Program is presented to prepare you for the MedStar Health Women’s Classic 5K presented by New Balance. Our goal is to provide a fun, inexpensive and supportive workout, and to encourage women to embark on a lifelong program of fitness.

The training is broken into four groups, depending on your own goals and physical condition. Whether you have yet to start a walking program, or are a seasoned runner looking to improve your race time, one of our groups will be right for you. We offer groups for:

  • Beginning & Intermediate Walkers

  • Walker to Run

  • Beginning Runners

  • Intermediate Runners

Our coaches will help you determine the best group for you. You are also welcome to change groups at any time during the program based on your progress or fitness level. There is a great deal of flexibility—you can alter the workouts to meet your needs—our coaches will help you find the right workout to achieve your personal running/walking goals.

Each week’s training session will be held for one hour and will include talks on a variety of fitness-related topics, a warm-up session and a great workout.  Participants also get a training premium at the end of the program if they attend 4 or more training sessions.

Training will start the week of May 13th and will conclude with the MedStar Health Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K on June 23, 2024
