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.

The day turned out to be very interesting to say the least. Continue reading “North Face 50 miler race report”
As a professional ultra marathon runner and coach, I often get asked what I eat. It’s a great question because nutrition is one of the most important choices runners and non-runners have for health, energy and performance.
Fueling during ultramarathons is very important and can make or break a race. I have raced in over 35 ultras and my fueling is dialed in very well. Continue reading “What I eat daily and during 50 & 100 mile races”
