My athletes seem to be healthier when we do a variety of activities in training and they usually perform better too and don’t get burnt out. I highly encourage you change up your training here or there to keep it exciting.

Hello. I just recorded a new episode on my podcast covering Ogden Marathon Training and Racing Frequently Answered Questions. Please tune in. You can find it on your favorite platform below:
I am excited to announce that I started a podcast to share my experiences. I will be covering running and triathlon training, grief, anxiety, humor
When you face a major challenge, be grateful for it. Many people will see something difficult as a bad thing. If something goes wrong, it’s a reason to complain, it’s a time of self-pity. That won’t get you anywhere. Instead, learn to be grateful for the challenge — it’s an opportunity to grow, to learn, to get better at something. When asked why I am not envious of the other runners here. Well…envy prompts one to feel inadequate, incomplete, impotent and missing out and I am none of that! While some things might be out of our control, much of what happens is based on our thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and are largely a conditional response to our focus. Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack. I lack nothing! I am whole.

It has been 23 years since I held you in my arms and had to said goodbye to you all too early. I am thankful for the motivation you give me to do better. Although you only lived five hours, you inspire me. You are an angel. I know you are rooting for me and love me despite my mistakes and imperfections and that makes all the difference. I miss and love you! I will continue to keep the promise I whispered to you. You will never be forgotten and your life matters @raceforgriefutah 💕
Going from being an Opioid addict to cleaning up his life, getting an education and having a family, now Justin is working towards qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships working with Coach Lora. He began as a novice athlete just 9 months ago when he first contacted the Blonde Runner. Listen to him share his story in his own words.

I hired Coach Lora five months ago to help me train for a triathlon. She not only introduced me to new kinds of workouts but challenged me beyond what I had considered myself able to do. She has been encouraging and excited about my progress, willing to answer questions and has shared insights and training tips to help me do my best. She adapted my training to include other activities I enjoy such as hiking, which helped me complete the Rim to River hike in the Grand Canyon recently, and I have discovered that I can do much more than I ever thought I could! Her coaching has been of great value to me and I have become not only more physically fit but mentally tough and confident in myself and my abilities. I am going into my triathlon next week prepared to give it my best and have fun doing it! I would recommend her coaching or consultations to anyone who seeks a professional perspective on goals, training, racing or personal motivation. Thanks, Coach Lora!
