Beginner-Friendly Running Coach

Run with Outdoor Beginner

Laura is a UESCA-certified running coach specializing in beginner runners learning to trail run. Any runner, regardless of ability, pace, size, ethnicity, gender identity, or other background is welcome and can benefit from coaching.

Having a running coach takes the mental load off by planning your runs each week and helping you reach your goals, whether that’s consistency, fitness, or a race.

Coaching Philosophy

I strongly believes that running is for everyone and there is no one way to “look like” a runner.

Running also isn’t a punishment for eating certain foods, you don’t have to lose weight to do it, and there is no pace that makes you a “real runner” (yes, if you walk you’re a runner). Outdoor Beginner coaching focuses on staying curious, finding joy in moving your body, and learning to do hard things.
