A Complete Training Solution
With so much running information out there, it's tempting to cobble together generic plans and bits of advice that sound pretty good at the time. But that's sort of like trying to bake your own wedding cake with 3 different recipes and a handful a random ingredients.
It's hard to have confidence that you'll get the results you want.
Wouldn't you rather let go of the worry and constant wonder if you're doing everything right?
Fact: Following a quality plan created by an experienced coach can help ensure that you are getting the workouts and recovery you need at the right time to reach your goals.

I had Coach Claire in mind for months! Mostly due to her amazing podcast. Her blogs and recipes are a must too! Once I started working with her, running felt super enjoyable. As the training went on, I noticed the increase in speed and strength gains, as well as feeling great! No workout burnouts or overtraining. The speeds I’m at now are speeds I only dreamed of before working with her. Coach Claire cares how you feel, how your run was, what your goals are, and understands how life can get into your training schedule. She motivates me to be my best and gives exceptional feedback. Coach Claire knows the research behind the why’s us runners ask. I’m a big fan of how she brings science into the equation of running. Working with her has made me a smarter, healthier, stronger, and faster runner.
Claire is wonderful to partner with if you are looking to push forward in your running journey. She listens to you and ensures the plan works with your goals and your daily life.
I began working with Coach Claire in preparation for my first marathon. She was encouraging when the workouts were tough, and taught me to trust the process. It was Coach Claire’s belief in me, and her positive and realistic feedback through the process, that helped me hit my goals, and the result was a BQ in my first marathon! Coach Claire clearly loves running and coaching runners of all ages and abilities. I’m eager to see where her coaching will take my running next!
I started working with Coach Claire with the goal of a fast 5k in mind. I finished the quarter with that and something even better. Through the training program, I rekindled my love of running. Working together virtually gave me the accountability I needed and the strcuture and resources I never would have found on my own.
I had the pleasure of working with Coach Claire with the goal of increasing
top end speed and producing a PB in the 5K. In 4 short months, Coach
Claire's holistic approach (mind, speed, and strength training) has made me
faster and a more well rounded runner and athlete.
The time I worked with Coach Claire was hugely impactful;
informative and transformative. Coach Claire is a wealth of knowledge and
an accomplished runner herself. From the 5K to the marathon; seasoned
veteran to beginner, I would highly recommend working with Coach Claire to
take your running and wellness to the next level.
Claire is a gift. I’ve been fussing and fretting about my training for weeks now. This feels so much better and right for where I am right now!
