I am not a plant-based evangelist.  I’m not here to convince anyone to do anything.  But if you’ve already decided that you want more plants in your life and you’re trying to figure out how to do that and get really good at running at the same time, this is the episode you need to hear or watch on YouTube.

Welcome to the Planted Runner.  I’m Coach Claire Bartholic and my mission is to help you improve your running, your mindset, and your life with science-backed training and plant-based nutrition.

Today, I’m going to go over:

  • The common reasons runners struggle when starting a plant based diet
  • How to build a plant based plate for every meal, and
  • What key nutrients you need to pay attention to for health and performance

In this episode, I’ll go over what you need to eat better today, but if you are wanting even more details, I’ve got you. My book, The Planted Runner: Running Your Best with Plant-Based Nutrition is available now wherever books are sold.  I include everything you need to become a better runner all in one place, fueled by plants.  You can order your copy today, OR you can enter to win a signed copy from me for free.  

To enter, just write a 5 star review of the podcast on Apple Podcasts.  I read every single one and I will randomly choose a winner at the end of each month for this entire year. 

Don’t forget to stay tuned for this week’s Mental Strength Minute.  Fortify your mind in 60 seconds or less.
