Welcome to NatRunsFar! I'm Natalie and I have had a passion for running for the majority of my life.
I started running with my parents at the age of seven in a local park and trails near our home in Ohio and haven't stopped. My Dad was a huge influence in my running, as he would run 14 miles to and from work several times a week and I loved hearing about his adventures along the way. He taught me that with hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything.

I ran cross country and track in high school and college and truly loved the competitive side of running along with the incredible way it made me feel.
After college, I started running marathons and triathlons and realized that my most successful running days were straight in front of me - if I have the courage to dream big.

Ten marathons later (+ countless half marathons, 5ks and 10ks.), I am solidly carving my way each day to become a better, faster runner.

I am Mom to three young kiddos (ages 5, 8 and 11) and married to my best friend. We have a crazy busy life in Southern California filled with joy, travel, adventure and every day life.

On a November night in 2014, shortly after putting our kids to bed, my husband suggested that I start a running blog to share my passion and knowledge with others. Although I have always loved to write, I couldn't imagine starting a blog. Four years later, it is an amazing journey and I love it - writing and sharing about running.


Join me as I put it all together: Mom, marathoner, writer, small business owner, running coach, and fitness enthusiast.

You'll find race recaps, glimpses into training, product reviews, healthy recipes, workout ideas and more.

On my blog, my hope is that you'll be inspired to live a healthy, athletic, and adventurous life!

Jerold and I started Suite Run in August 2018 as a way to give traveling runners a scenic, safe and accessible (3 or 5 mile) running route that starts from their hotel door. We also publish a Suite Run weekly newsletter that is all things running, travel, current events, interviews with fantastic people and more. We'd love to have you join us! You can subscribe HERE.

After 30 years of running experience, I've decided to share my knowledge and love for the sport, by guiding others on their personal journey. Interested in working with a running coach? I'd love to help you and I'm currently taking new clients. You can contact me via e-mail: Natalie@natrunsfar.com for more information.

I also write for Women's Running Magazine. It gives me a lot of joy to write about the sport of running... you can find it all HERE.

Running happy... yep. All the time. Honored to be an ambassador for Brooks Running.

I'm currently training for my 11th marathon this fall. Join me on this crazy ride and never stop dreaming my friends.

I love hearing from readers!
