Why Read this Blog?

Good question - you're the same as a male runner, right?


Right... except for your hormones, nutrition needs, options for birth control, the fact that you lactate after creating human life, (assuming you decided to sacrifice your entire body to start a family) and your physiology & psychology changes wildly every two weeks or so.

Listen. There's enough talk & research about "runners" on the internet. Let's talk about the female runner.

This blog is my personal, ever-evolving, on-the-ground reference for applying what I learn about the female ecosystem to the sport of running - then I tell you how to apply it yourself.

I plan on breaking barriers, and I want you there with me.

You're more than some generic athlete, you're a woman.

Your Running & Emotional Plan
(half marathon)

13.1 miles in under 2 hours? Easy. Mental toughness throughout? That's harder.


17 years of competitive running & five years of coaching have taught me the toughest battles are not on the track, but in the mind.

This painstakingly detailed, 8-week plan establishes a powerful connection between mental toughness and the act of running through a running, mental, and emotional activity every day.

It’s easy enough to give up running when there isn’t any positive emotion connected to it. But you’ll stick to it when there is.
