Meet The Run Formula's NEWEST Coach!

Mar 23, 2016

A year ago I met my soon-to-be coach, Beth Shutt for coffee. For several weeks before we met in person we talked on the phone here and there and emailed routinely about my Boston marathon training. Out of the kindness of her heart Beth put up with my incessant questions about anything and everything running related. I say this because at that point she wasn’t my actually my one-on-one coach, rather I had simply paid for the mission-plan option with The Run Formula. With this option a coach creates your training plan and to some extent you are sent on your merry way (well, not really - there is an online group forum where you can post any/all run questions and get a response back within 24 hours).

There’s no magic in marathon: The five pillars of race day success.

Mar 01, 2016There's no magic in marathon. Maximizing your race day performance requires months and weeks of practice learning the ins and outs of your body and what is truly capable of at the big event. You put it the work, you reap the rewards. It's really just that simple!

Saying ‘so long’ to your sole-mate: The benefits of training in two shoes.

Feb 09, 2016Many runners spend their days scouring the earth’s surface to find that single special set of shoes that will take them to marathon greatness. These runners mistakenly hunt for their soulmate as they believe there is only one special shoe out there that can get them to the starting line unscathed. But what if you not only could- but possibly SHOULD train in more than one shoe to prepare for race day? What if training in two shoes actually has real physical, psychological and training benefits that can enhance your race day performance?

Dressing for the three C’s of winter: The crisp, the cold and the cruel.

Jan 15, 2016Not sure what to wear when you have to brave the cold temperatures for your long run? You’re not alone! Many runners have difficulty knowing how to dress for winter’s ever-changing conditions. Whipping winds, slippery snow and brutally cold temperatures often make for challenging- but not impossible- training runs. Investing in durable and functional gear allows for runner to comfortably train through the majority of winter’s extreme conditions.

  • Over the past year you've taken me from a 4 ½ hour marathoner to a Boston qualifier. I stepped on the starting line at 160 pounds. In 5 months of training I dropped 18 pounds and 35 minutes off my previous marathon.

  • The Run Formula worked with me on every aspect of training. The Run Formula program is flexible and produces great results. This program has been and still is well worth the investment.
