Welcome to This Runner’s Recipes!
My name is Laura, and I’m an RRCA and Run-Fit certified running coach, writer, distance runner, craft beer lover, sourdough baker, and outdoor enthusiasts living with my husband and two rescue dogs in the Seattle area. In addition to coaching and writing this blog, I develop content for companies including Runkeeper and Stonyfield.
As you can see from this blog, I love to run – and I love to help others in their running. I have been running since 2008 and started racing once I finished up graduate school in 2014. In October 2015, I completed my first marathon at the Portland Marathon. My PR in the half marathon is currently 1:38:13 at the 2017 Lake Sammamish Half Marathon and I placed second overall in a local 10K with a time of 43:53. Most recently, I ran my second Boston Qualifying time with a 3:29 at the California International Marathon in December 2017.
This blog is where I talk about running, racing, hiking, food and nutrition, and life in general. Here you will find nutritious recipes, nutrition for runners, running tips, race recaps, and more. I strive to help others pursue their running goals and develop a healthy eating lifestyle that fuels running and nourishes the body. I also write about my own running and training for half marathon and marathons.

I believe that no matter what your pace or favorite distance, running can and should be an enjoyable part of your life where you can push yourself beyond your self-imposed limits and towards your true potential. I work with dozens of runners in helping them achieve their goals and find joy in running – from first-time runners to those seeking a PR in various distances.
