About Kristen:

Kristen is a Physical Therapist and running coach who helps runners achieve their next PR without nagging injuries. She is the creator of the Run Your Life Method, an online course providing a comprehensive and individualized approach for runners. Run Your Life’s mission is to provide runners the resources (prehab, rehab, strength training, recovery, nutrition, training, and mindset) they need to stay healthy, so they can enjoy the sport they love for their entire life. Kristen’s passion for her work stems from suffering a number of injuries herself. She ran competitively in high school and college with plans of continuing to improve her running times after college. However, injury after injury kept her from reaching her goals. It wasn’t until she started incorporating a comprehensive approach to running that she found herself able to run without constantly being injured. She finds great joy in being able to teach others how to do the same. Kristen has had the opportunity to live in many different parts of the country and currently resides in North Dakota. She graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Exercise Science and Spanish, completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
