Beginner-Friendly Running Coach

Run with Outdoor Beginner

About Coach Laura

Laura began running as an adult before becoming a UESCA-certified running coach specializing in new and beginner runners. In addition to Outdoor Beginner programs, she teaches beginner trail running clinics with Life’s 2 Short Fitness and also works at Runners Roost in Colorado.

Coaching Philosophy

Laura strongly believes running is for everyone and there is no one way to “look like” a runner. Any runner, of any ability, pace, size, ethnicity, gender, or other identity is welcome.

Outdoor Beginner programs are not dieting or weight-loss focused. Running 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). Start running in the wonderful body you have right now!
