Meet Your CoachES
Coach Laura is excited to return as head coach at Duluth Moms on the Run. She loves encouraging others, maybe even more than completing goals herself. She is looking forward to a new season of fitness, fun, and friendship.
Laura originally stumbled across the program in West Fargo, ND when she saw the group exercising in a park. She had recently moved to the area and was interested in running a 5K and meeting new people, so she decided to join. Two years later, she ran her first marathon - all because of her running buddies. Her friends at West Fargo Moms on the Run supported her when she moved to Duluth and even joined her in running Duluth’s famous Grandma’s Marathon.
Laura is a mom to two children and wife to her husband who is a basketball coach for the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
Meet Coach Steph! I started my journey with Moms on the Run in 2011 when I was training for my first half marathon. I wanted to learn how to be a better runner and I really wanted to make some mom friends. At the time, I lived in the Cities and I had 2 girls and a baby boy at home. I spent 4 years with White Bear Lake MOTR & a summer with Coon Rapids Dam. I made so many lasting friendships with moms all over the Metro that I was excited to join again in Duluth in 2018 when my family moved north (now totaling 2 girls, 2 boys, 2 dogs & a cat). I have run everything from 5k to 100 mile ultra marathons, road & trail Ragnars, and triathlon. What I love about MOTR and the sport of running is that everyone can do it by putting one foot in front of the other. I gained that confidence each time I showed up for class and accomplished something new. Laura & I are a great team and we love watching each woman that joins us reach new distances each and every week!
Stephanie will be coaching the majority of our Virtual Class Release and Restore: Yoga for Runners.
