Learn to Run Bend is a 9 week, beginner level, women's training group just for brand new runners, women who haven't run in a reeeeally long time, and terrified, discouraged, or reluctant would-be runners who are seeking a safe and welcoming place to learn to run a 5K.

Learning to run creates vibrant health, increased energy, greater confidence, and self-efficacy.  We'll cover important foundational running information,  like running form, gear, and nutrition - but also subjects that will help you to move your body long after our class ends - like motivation,  your big why, overcoming exercise reluctance, discovering joy in  movement, and more.  We'll also enjoy a few complementary movement experiences to build strength and confidence!

What you get:

  • An 9 week training plan that will take you from reclining on your comfy couch to completing a 5K
  • Twice weekly workouts, on Wednesday nights at 6pm PT and Saturday mornings at 8am PT
  • Running clinics on breathing, running form, gear, warm ups, and more
  • Behavior change science that puts a strong foundation under your new running practice
  • A private Slack group for accountability, support, and FUN
  • Weekly emails from your coach and mentors
  • Optional 1-on-1 coaching and/or runs with your coach

Your coach is Michelle Poirot, an  RRCA-certified running coach and Duke University-certifed health coach with 9 years and 16+ beginner-level training groups under her belt!
