Welcome to The Conscious Runner

Get Faster. Prevent Injury. Be Present.

lisahRunningHi Conscious Running Friend,

I’m so glad you found my little corner of the internet! Woot! Woot!

My name is Lisah. I am a mother, runner, coach and the heart and soul behind The Conscious Runner. I help you become a stronger, faster, more injury-resistant runner and feel FANTASTIC while doing it.

Lots of sites help you become stronger and faster, but I also want to help you feel good while doing it, because I know running is more to you than putting one foot in front of the other. It is your meditation, your sanctuary, your challenge. And it sucks when you’re not able to do it.

As a competitive runner of over 20 years, I’ve had everything from stress fractures, to patella tendinitis, to IT BAND syndrome, to SI joint pain to plantar fasciitis. Through it all, I was able to represent the Virgin Islands twice at the World Cross Country Championships in Switzerland and Belgium and almost qualify for the Athens Olympic marathon.

I know the frustration that comes from not being able to run when you want to run. I know the excitement of getting close to a goal race only to be derailed by injury weeks before.

I know what it feels like to sacrifice other things you enjoy, only to have your running dreams not come to fruition.

And I know it doesn’t have to be this way!

Through running-specific strength and mobility training and conscious attention, I have been able to run my highest, most consistent mileage and feel fantastic while doing it.

I want to help you do the same.

With care, Lisah

What is Conscious Running?

Being conscious is more than being awake.

It is running the roads, tracks and trails feeling alive and connected throughout every pore in your body.

It is listening to your body and responding purposefully with every stride.

It is doing those things that help you become a stronger, faster, more injury resistant runner and feel fantastic while doing it.

It is running in the present moment and awakening to the experience.

Runs go by more quickly, injury becomes more avoidable and a feeling of well-being pervades.

At The Conscious Runner, you’ll learn:

  • How to prevent injury by assessing and correcting muscle imbalances, tightness, weakness
  • How to train in a smart, methodical way to avoid injury and run faster
  • How to optimize your form for injury prevention, efficiency and speed
  • How to use mindfulness to prevent injury, run faster and feel good

I look forward to helping you prevent injury and feel good.
