“Through her coaching, I ran my best-executed half marathon by really honing in learning how to push myself when needed and finished an entire 26.2 miles.” – Caroline, first-time marathon finisher in last year’s Marathon Training Group
On June 5th, I am launching my second annual virtual marathon training group!
Maybe you signed up for your first marathon ever (congratulations) and now are overwhelmed by the prospect of training for and racing 26.2 miles. Maybe you finally want to make this year the year you qualify for Boston or run a big PR. Or maybe you want to finally finish a marathon strong and happy, with a finishing kick and a smile on your face at the finish line.
I firmly believe that individualized training, community support, knowledge, and preparedness are essential for any runner who wants strong and enjoyable marathon. My training philosophy to a marathon differs from what you may find in Hansons or Hal Higdon cookie cutter plans. With each runner, I work to develop the best possible training plan for you.
My Fall 2017 Marathon Training Group offers exactly that, to help you run your best marathon – whether it’s your first or fastest.
Pre-registration is now open for the Fall 2017 Marathon Training Group!

The Road to Success: What Runners Say
“Before I started working with Laura for the Marathon Training group, I wrote to her and said, ‘If you think this isn’t the time because I’m not good, just say so.’ Instead of turning me away for being a non-consistent, slower runner using a run/walk method, Laura took me as I was and guided me to a marathon finish line. Laura helped me define my goals and carefully crafted a race plan tailored to where I was with running. She helped motivate me and give me advice for all areas that impact my running – my stress level with work, my eating habits, and my recovery. Through her coaching, I ran my best-executed half marathon by really honing in learning how to push myself when needed and finished an entire 26.2 miles. After the Marathon Training Group was over, it never crossed my mind to discontinue training with Laura. She is kind and knowledgeable which makes her a great coach!” – Caroline
“Thanks to training with Laura I was able to complete my first full marathon in Sept. 2016. I’m fairly new to running so crossing the finish line was a huge success for me. To complicate my training I have rheumatoid arthritis, Laura carefully designed a program that wouldn’t over stress my body. She taught me about nutrition, fueling on runs, recovery and mainly self-care. Her continues encouragement helped boost my self-confidence and in return I became a stronger runner. I am eternally grateful for her sincere concern, support and guidance during my marathon training.” – Alison
