What if you could fix everything that’s wrong with how you run in a single day?  Sounds ridiculous, right?

It could actually be true.  The way you run clearly has a lot to do with your unique body and your experience, but according to some, it has a lot more to do with your brain.

In this episode with Coach Dex Moore, you’ll learn:

  • What commonalities every runner has with their running form
  • Why changing how you run can massively improve your performance and lower your injury risk, and
  • Why a simple mind shift might just be more important than all the running drills you’ve ever done

Dex Moore is a certified running coach and Pose Method Specialist.  He has helped hundreds of runners transform their running form in as little as one day with concepts that can apply to everyone.

His videos on Instagram show the before and afters of regular runners like you that have taken Dex’s course or worked with him in person and I promise you, the change is phenomenal.  You can find him at coachdex_757 to see it for yourself.

And I even sent a video of me running for Dex to analyze during this episode and you might be surprised to learn what he said about me!

And at the end of today’s show, right after the Mental Strength Minute, I’ll announce this month’s winner of our Apple Podcast review contest.  Anyone can win just by leaving a 5 star review of the show.  I’ll choose one random winner to win a free signed copy of my book every month this year.

You can order my book The Planted Runner: Running Your Best With Plant-Based Nutrition wherever you get books or request a copy from your local library. 


I have helped hundreds of real runners chase their dreams and conquer what they never thought possible. My coaching philosophy combines science-based training, plant-based running nutrition, and proven mindset techniques to unlock every runner’s true potential.

I’m a certified vegan running coach, sports nutrition specialist, mom, and borderline obsessive plant lover.

As an athlete, I went from a 4:02 first marathon all the way to a 2:58 finishing time at the age of 42, entirely plant-based.

I coach vegan, plant-based, and plant-curious runners to achieve the same dramatic success, from those on a walk-run program, general fitness, up to high-level athletes.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love the planted runner podcast

I like Claire’s diversity of guests. As a senior age group runner I have enjoyed guests who are more like me and who provide inspiration and insight about the benefits or lifetime running as well as debunking myths about the detrimental effects of running.  GoJoMa

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Great info for runners of all abilities!

I started listening to The Planted Runner in October and I just can’t get enough. You will find simple, straightforward advice as well as interesting interviews with a variety of athletes. The focus is not on a plant based diet. The focus is being the best version of yourself!!  LisaU9

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Concise helpful advice

I liked Claire on run to the top, and I like that she has her own show now! My family is plant-based and loves to run, so it’s a good fit for us. Plus Claire is great at summarizing and making sense of sound running advice which is very much appreciated.  Watson R
