Meet Running Evolution

Running sucks...until it doesn’t.

It’s time to get past the suck and into the fun.

So. You hate running. 

It’s time for a...


The ultimate training for people who hate running.

Get ready to become a “real” runner and complete your first 5k!

Raise your hand if the last time you tried to run, you were thinking:

  • I'm going to die.
  • Everyone is looking at me.
  • I’m so slow!
  • I feel like I’m being chased.
  • What if I fall and hurt myself?
  • I look dumb.
  • I’m way behind everybody else...
  • I’m so out of shape!
  • Maybe I’m just not a runner.

...And that’s just the beginning of a long list of things EVERYONE thinks when they first start running.

I get it.

When I started running, I hated it...then I loved it.

So if you’re thinking, “Running sucks!”

...This is ESPECIALLY for you.

Running is pure awesomeness.

(You just haven’t experienced that part yet.)

⇉ Here’s what’s on the other side of the suckage:

FEELIN’ YOUR BODY. I’m not just talking about feelin’ yourself, I’m talking about a feeling in your body like you never have before. Feeling alive.

FITNESS. You’re going to get stronger, leaner, meaner, and faster than the fears holding you back.

CONFIDENCE. There’s nothing that gets you in your power quite like a runner’s high. And even when it wears off, you’re gonna feel pretty awesome about yourself.

MENTAL HEALTH. Have you ever seen one of those movies where a character’s like, “I’m gonna go on a run to clear my head?” You too can become that person!

GENERAL BADASSERY. When you conquer one hard thing, you’re gonna wanna conquer more hard things. This goes for running races, launching podcasts, playing instruments on stage, or any of your other scary secret dreams.

What Rachel Said.

"Six months ago, I could barely jog two miles. Yesterday, I ran a half marathon in just about 2 hours and 45 minutes.

In the past, I have approached exercise as a way to lose weight. But last summer, I committed to running because I thought it would help my mental health. I found Beth Baker and her uniquely inclusive program Running Evolution.

At first it sucked. And then it worked.

My mood improved. My focus at work got sharper. My energy level shot up.

I became someone who wakes up before sunrise and runs with a headlamp on. I made friends and had fun. I got high without drugs.

Also, my dog was psyched.

Our culture has taught us that the value of exercise is that it improves your appearance. How shallow. And what a bummer. After 27 years of struggling to exercise consistently, I have finally learned that weight loss is not a good enough reason to get me outside when it's cold and raining and I don't want to go. I just don't care that much. Sorry, Society.

But if exercise is going to make me feel like an unstoppable goddess whose sole purpose on this earth is to kick ass?

Then fine. FINE. I guess I'll go for a run."

What Tara Said.

"There’s “running” (bleck!) and then there’s “running with Beth” - yay! She turns the intimidating logistics and mental & physical game of running into a positive, approachable, honest and often hilarious effort. In the past 3 months, I’ve gone from not being able to run for ten minutes, to being on the verge of running a 10k…I literally CANNOT believe this is happening and there’s no way I’d be here without the kindness, know-how and community building Beth delivers in the Virtual running club. 

I have tried and given up on running so many times, but there’s no getting around the simplicity (and rewards) of a running workout in a busy life. Enter Beth. With her supportive and smart coaching (aka she is kind & empathetic but also helps you get past the excuses/barriers), monthly calendars, community-building and treasure trove of practical tips, I am finding true running success for the first time in my life (I’m 49). "
