Terms of Service

At RunCanvas Coaching, our mission is simple: we want to help you achieve your fitness goals. We believe that we can best assist you throughout your journey by providing a training plan just for you; primarily based on your goals, abilities, and life.

Services included in your monthly coaching are:

  • An initial consultation to discuss your running goals, abilities, and life as it pertains to your current, past, and future training.
  • Fully customized training plans created by certified coach, and adjustments made through the training cycle as needed.
  • Unlimited communication with coach as needed through the training cycle in the VDOT app.
  • Strategic pre-race discussion as needed including nutrition discussions.

Your commitment includes:

  • Uploading your training data into the VDOT App or manual entering data
    • This information is vital to the success of you reaching your goals as the feedback allows for better modification and customization of workouts and overall training programs.
  • Always notifying your coach if you have something that seems to be causing you pain outside normal training/muscle soreness so she can quickly give advice as to how to proceed. This gives the best opportunity to limit injuries.
  • I understand that training programs are made specifically for me and shall not be shared with others without consent from RunCanvas Coaching.
  • Training/Racing, doing your best, and having fun along the way!
  • I give RunCanvas permission to post post-race congratulatory statements on the Runcanvas Blog and Social Media pages which could include pictures and tagging you in the post.

I hereby contract Janell McKinney owner and coach of RunCanvas Coaching, as my personal running coach. I agree to pay for coaching services up front as agreed upon. I agree that should I require any one-on-one coaching outside the time included in my monthly coaching package that I am expected to pay a rate of $65 an hour for said services. I understand that these services can, at my discretion, either be billed as one complete hour or split into two half hour sessions. I understand that ALL services I require are to be billed and paid for up front before I receive said services.


 In consideration of RunCanvas Coaching for the purposes of improving my fitness, I hereby attest that I am in good health and that my statements in the Consultation Questionnaires are accurate to the best of my knowledge. I fully understand the risk involved in such a fitness/running program and accept for myself, my heirs, and my personal representatives’ full responsibility for personal bodily injury, death, or property losses that may occur as a result of my being a part of this program or engaging in training sessions. I hereby indemnify and save and hold harmless my coach and RunCanvas Coaching from any loss, liability, damage and cost I may incur due to my participation in this program. I have read this waiver and release from liability, and further agree that no oral representations, statements or inducements apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made.
