The Mother Runners Coaching Services

The Mother Runners now provides individualized coaching services specifically designed for mother runner athletes of all levels.

As a mother runner myself, I 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, I provide nimble schedules and training setup to allow you to stay healthy and reach your goals. I offer attentive coaching that’s individualized to your goals and stage of life. What’s more, is that my coaching connects you with other The Mother Runners athletes so that you can support one another on your journey to being the best runner and mother you can be.

What Runners Are Saying

“The best thing about working with Whitney is that she constantly asked me how I felt and I was encouraged to listen to my (previously injured) body during the entire training block.  No matter what was going on, Whitney always answered my questions and taught me how to be flexible in my training when the niggles hit. Whitney always kept an open line of communication; Being a mother runner (both Whitney and myself) sometimes means texts at odd hours and responses at odd times due to managing kids, spouse, and work. I would definitely recommend any runner work with Whitney (mother or not)!”–Emily B.

“I had always run intuitively listening to my body.  With so much uncertainty that pregnancy brings, Whitney helped me understand what was safe, right for the moment and could strengthen my body throughout my pregnancy. She was a safe and knowledgeable sounding board, flexible, and helped me meet my goals: feel as good as possible while pregnant! I am looking forward to postpartum recovery and returning to running with her by my side!”— Jessica J.

“Whitney has been amazing coaches in helping to provide consistency, strength building and emotional/running support. She helps take the stress of training out by providing complete training/workout schedules and is always there to help switch up schedules when life happens and also to provide needed encouragement. She has helped to give advice and suggestions when needed from fueling to stretching and all the in-betweens.  As a runner, I have often struggled with building my strength, and with her leadership, I have really started to feel the difference in both my physical strength and running as a whole. The Mother Runner environment is a true team with so many encouraging and uplifting athletics. Best decision I made was joining the team!” — Elizabeth M.
