WHY Running Performance is for EVERY Runner (with tight hips)

What if I told you with ABSOLUTE CERTIANTY that running performance IS for you?

Here me out.


You're a runner.

And you want to run better, be better,...whatever that may look like!

With me so far?\


Then what you're looking for is…running performance.

Not convinced?

Let's bust some running performance myths real fast.

Running performance looks like:

"I have to run faster"

"I have to want to run further to need it"

"Running performance is for those runners who are trying to get a crazy PR"

"Only runners looking for a BQ need running performance"

"Running performance is going to take soooo much time! And I just don't have that.."

Let me stop you right there.

There's nothing wrong with having a time, PR, distance-based, BQ running goal, etc! In fact, all of those ARE great reasons to seek out running performance.

But just because those aren't your immediate running goals, doesn't mean you can't benefit. Because in reality, to meet ANY of those amazing, big aspirations, you have take smaller steps to achieve those bigger goals!

That's why I want to challenge YOU to Dare to Train Differently and redefine running performance.

Let's dive in!

Part 1: Redefine Running Performance

You've already done your own running performance if you've:

  • you've every debriefed after a race or workout

  • figured out what you needed to adjust or change to do better next time

  • Decided to strive for specific running goals,...etc

Looking for HOW to figure out what you did well on and what didn't go so hot your last training block/race? Check out my blog post HERE (off season/better runner blog post)


Seem too easy?

Running performance is for any runner who wants to run better.

You've run a race.

You're training for another one.

You probably want to do even better this next race, right?!

Making a plan to make that happen: that's running performance.

Let it be easy! Simple is NOT bad. Often, simple is effective.

Part 2: Let It Be Easy
  • Pick ONE running performance goal.

  • Make an action plan

  • Work the plan.

  • Re-assess to see whether you got the results/met the goal you wanted.

That's it, running fit fam.
