As mother runners ourselves, Laura and I both personally understand (and have lived) the benefits and challenges unique to motherhood. From training with a stroller to running while pregnant to crazy schedules to breastfeeding babies to sleepless nights, we provide nimble schedules and training set-up to allow you to stay healthy and reach your goals.
I partnered with Laura because of rich running knowledge, experience with mother runner athletes, and stage of life as a new mom. Laura, who serves as The Mother Runners’ head coach, has a level of detail and care in her coaching that is unparalleled. (Read her athlete testimonies here.)
