I KNOW you just want to run! I've been there. You NEED that physical outlet for your grief.

Maybe on top of that you are wondering if your PR days are behind you or if running will ever feel good so that you can fully enjoy it again. It’s a part of you - your me time, your stress relief, your main mode of physical fitness…. or all of the above.

You now find yourself in uncharted territory physically and mentally. You've just gone through a massive physical and emotional trauma. No matter the outcome pregnancy is injury to the body. With this outcome, it's a whole 'nother level.

You’re tired, scratch that, exhausted and probably a little (or a lot) overwhelmed. You NEED that run, that thing that makes you feel like you again… but you’re frustrated by the generic, contradictory, and not-so-helpful advice?

"At 6 weeks you’re good to go. Just jump back into what you were doing before... but go slow...listen to your body."

"Wait until 3 to 6 months before you even start back to running. Don’t do this, don’t do that…”

"The aches and pains and maybe a little peeing your pants while you run are just part of your new normal."

On top of that, whenever you look for resources, you are bombarded by the postpartum workout images with a living baby.

You need and deserve better!

This Postpartum Run Ready Road Map will introduce you to the 5 steps in my START Formula so that you have confidence that you are taking the steps back to that thing that makes you feel like you, in a way that feels good in your body and builds a solid foundation for all your future performance goals. All in the context of what your life looks like now.


​Strengthen your body by laying the foundations and intentionally progressing from there.
Tune In to the signs and signals your body is giving you about what it’s ready for (aka. what listen to your body actually means).
Align your posture so that your core, pelvic floor, and breath can fully support your body and movement.
Restore functional movement patterns affected by pregnancy and needed to run efficiently.
Trust in the process by taking the guess work out of it and trust in your body by fully understanding the support it needs right now.

You’re not fragile or limited in what your body can do physically.
You just need strategy to get back to 100% (or better).

​This Road Map will help with that.

Get it now.
