What are people saying about Blonde Runner classes?

“Swimming has always been the weakest part of my triathlons, so I jumped at the chance to join Coach Lora’s swim clinic.  She gave me some specific pointers right away, and I immediately felt a difference.  She took video footage of me from multiple angles, and when we got together the next week to review, I was able to really understand what she was talking about.  There are so many technical aspects involved in swimming, but Coach has been incredibly patient with me (helping me be patient with myself!), and helped me to focus on one at a time until I can start combining them. I especially appreciate how well she explains ideas and techniques–trying many different directions until I finally figured out which one clicked for me. That “Aha!” moment was worth every penny spent and every minute in the water.”  ~ Melanie M.

“I want to thank you for your help. I learned much from your nutrition and running form class over the last month. Without the proper training I came within six minutes of my goal time and was back running within a couple of days. Thank you for the tips and willing to share your knowledge with those of us just starting this running adventure.”  ~ Doug S., class participant

“I never thought I needed a coach before, but it makes all the difference.  If you are looking to learn, to improve or just for some accountability with regard to your fitness, Coach Lora is for you.  Since working with her, I’m back down to the weight I was 16 years ago, and I have less injuries and better performance.”  ~ Scott T., MD, TBR team member


“Thank you so much for the running form class. I took away alot of new ideas and I definitely think it is helping to improve the way that I run.”  ~ Kristy M., class participant

“Coach Lora, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your posts and your emails. You are a fantastic motivator!” ~ Becca C., Facebook fan and class participant

“Just want you to know that I am super excited about my running these past couple of weeks. I think the running form analysis has really helped me. I can’t wait to learn more. Thank you for your help!”  ~ Marie E.  – Individual Running Form Analysis participant
