Runner's Mindset Coaching

Your thoughts can work for you instead of against.


You’ve read every article and tried every tip. You’ve done meditation, mantras, and everything you know to stop the doubts and negative thoughts that bog down your running but the truth is, you just can’t seem to do it or make it stick.

You know you can run better, further, and more consistently - your body can do so much more - but your mindset keeps getting in the way. 

Avoiding it costs


  • Worrying about failing or living up to expectations
  • Comparing yourself to others and despairing 
  • Beating yourself up over bad results
  • Stuck without motivation


  • Holding back because of self-doubt
  • Resisting what you fear, like night running
  • Struggling to stay positive when you hit a low spot
  • Quitting on yourself  - DNFs

You run better when

You’re no longer at the mercy of doubts and fears.

Your thoughts become positive power.


"I do okay," I figured.

Before I started running ultras, mental training was easy to put off. "There's so much I need to do to get my body in peak shape," I thought, "I'll work on the mind stuff later." What I didn't realize was how closely mind and body work together. Your body can't reach it's potential until the mind is fully on board.

When I experimented using my life coach training on running, a whole new way of ultrarunning opened up for me.  

There's no question. I wouldn't have achieved all I have - over 100 100-mile races for example - and had as much fun doing it, without strong mindset skills.

"Nine years ago, after one too many glasses of wine, I signed up for my first trail ultra.  The next morning I read the course description and went into full panic mode.  1900' climb, stream crossing, rock staircase, expect it to take twice as long as your fastest 50k.  I was ready to cancel my registration, but after several email conversations with Susan, who was the RD, she offered the assurance that I could indeed do this.  Race day came and I did show up at the start, and yes, achieved what I had earlier thought was impossible and finished the race.  Now here I am at 59 years old, still running those "impossible" races, thanks to Susan not letting me not start."

    Why? Think about races. If you enter a race and on race day you're injured, get cold feet, the race still happens. The race director has cleared her schedule for this and given you one of the entry slots. She's committed time, energy, and money to the event based on your commitment. It's the same with coaching.

    Respect your time and mine. Do the work. Remember why you signed up in the first place and say "yes" to it. You deserve better results and you're worth the investment.
