And I’m here to help you reach your running potential! As Eat 2 Run founder, holistic sports nutritionist, and running coach, I get really excited about helping others reach their running goals because I have personally experienced just how profoundly the right nutrition strategy can positively affect race day performance.
I’d like nothing more than to help you realize your running potential too! Let me explain…
Eating 2 Run is about providing your body with whole, natural and delicious foods while supporting the systems of your body that work to recover from the repetitive stress of running.
Maybe you are constantly sidelined by injury or illness. Or super frustrated that despite all the running you’re doing, you just can’t reach your racing weight. Or maybe, like I did, you want to break a certain time barrier, get a personal best or qualify for Boston.
If you want it… If you really want it… You can have it. That’s where I come in!
I’m a registered holistic nutritionist. For the love of food and running I specialize in sports nutrition for runners. I love to race all distances, but the marathon is my favourite. I’ve 2012 BMO Vancouver (3:33:34)combined my natural nutrition and sports exercise studies (and experience as a personal trainer) with my passion for running… And in doing so I offer you a unique perspective on what it takes to build a healthy and resilient body capable of running strong and achieving your dream race performance.
My focus on “eating 2 run” grew from my belief that proper nutrition is a key component in running stronger, reducing injury risk by building a strong, healthy body, and obtaining better race times. After nine years of “running to eat”, I began “eating to run”. Four months later, I ran a 3:33:24 marathon (May 2012, Vancouver BMO Marathon), shaving nearly 25 minutes off my previous personal best and achieving my long standing goal of qualifying for Boston. Later that same year, I ran a 1:36:25 half-marathon, over 12 minutes faster than any half-marathon I’d run the previous 9 years. You could say I’m hooked… I’ll be eating to run for always!
I share my love of running with my amazing husband and we have a few non-running furkids (Sparkle, Sunshine & Daisy). I’ve now run 18 marathons (with a current PB of 3:30:31) and countless half’s, 10’s, 8’s & 5k’s since I began running 14 years ago. While my long-term goal is to still be running strong at 100 years old, my current focus is training for a sub-3:21 marathon.

Really… I mostly run, eat and sleep. Repeat.
