We at Wholistic Running hope you had a great summer with lots of happy running. Many of the athletes we coach had very successful races this year. Some had other goals including weight loss and overcoming injuries. Those athletes met their goals and often exceeded them which we couldn’t be more happy about.
Lindsey and I only coach a handful of athletes at any given time in order to offer the most comprehensive and individualized attention that runners require no matter what level they are at. We love helping beginning to competitive runners reach their goals! Our athletes often exceed their goals with not only our knowledge and attention but by inspiring them to go beyond what they believe is possible.
Next week we will be increasing the prices of our 1, 3, and 6-month coaching packages. Right now we have a couple of coaching spots available where you can lock in our current price. Athletes that we currently coach will pay the same price they have paid in the past.
You may use your coaching package now OR in 2017. You may also purchase packages as gifts for friends and family. Don’t miss out! To view our current packages, click HERE.

We at Wholistic Running take a comprehensive approach to helping runners perform their best. This includes biomechanics improvement, detailed training plans and nutritional coaching. Too many runners are not reaching even close to their potential because of the way they eat.
Lindsey and I are passionate about nutrition and helping others lose weight, increase energy and improve their health. I wrote an article in the June edition of Trail Runner magazine featuring 3 of the world’s best ultra marathoners and what they eat. You can check it out HERE. Just like these world class athletes, Lindsey and I are advocates of whole foods, plant-based diets for health and performance. We are both certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell and Lindsey has her Master’s in Holistic Nutrition as well.
So what do we recommend? We encourage and teach others that eating healthy is a lifestyle and not a diet. We share recipes that include lots of fresh fruits, veggies and other whole foods including nuts, seeds, quinoa, rice, beans and grains.
How about you? Do you eat as healthy as you would like? If not, make a commitment to a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle and you will be amazed at the benefits. If you would like help doing this, check out our Nutritional Coaching page for more info.

I went into this year’s North Face 50 miler in Park City, Utah wanting to improve on my performance from last year where I finished 3rd in 7:45:46. I felt fitter, stronger and faster this year. The day turned out to be very interesting to say the least. Continue reading “North Face 50 miler race report”
I am a professional runner who has raced in over thirty-five 50 & 100 mile races. I haven’t had a significant running injury in over 11 years. Yet I was told years ago that I had to give up running by several doctors because of chronic injuries. So what allowed me to go from injured runner to professional runner?
I learned how to run, train and eat smarter. This is what Wholistic Running is all about and how I’ve helped thousands of runners run pain-free, faster and longer while having more fun.
What improving your running technique will do for you:
- Fewer injuries, less pain and decreased fatigue: Improving your technique will reduce impact and improve alignment.
- Run faster: You will run more efficiently and you’ll save energy.
- Enjoy running more: Running will be easier in less than 3 weeks.
- Run farther: You’ll be able to train more frequently with less fatigue, fewer injuries and quicker recovery time.
- Get results quicker: Train smarter and reach your goals quicker.
- Hills: Run uphills easier and downhills without any pain.
There are many resources for learning how to improve your running technique nowadays. However, much of the info out there is complicated and even harmful. As a biomechanics and technique specialist, I teach runners how to improve their technique with immediate results. No matter where you live, you can learn with my Online Technique Guidance Plans.
Efficient running technique is the foundation of healthy running. When you combine that with proper training and optimal nutrition, you can run injury-free while greatly improving your performance.
Wholistic Running is based out of Park City, Utah. We offer in-person and online coaching for runners of all levels as well as nutritional coaching and technique analysis. Please visit our Coaching Page to find out more about what we offer.
Who doesn’t want to be a better runner? For me, becoming a better runner doesn’t just mean being faster and winning races. It’s about being healthy, injury-free and doing the right things to help you achieve and exceed your running goals. Here are some of my tips to help you be a better runner:
