Liza Howard. Ultrarunning Mom.

Ultrarunning Mom


I’ve enjoyed great success running ultramarathons and I love sharing the lessons I’ve learned about training and racing with others to help them achieve their goals.  I will provide you with a biweekly schedule designed to improve your endurance and speed, as well as, keep you healthy and uninjured.  We will check in weekly by phone, e-mail, or Skype to make adjustments to your schedule and you can contact me by e-mail with questions that come up during the week.  As a spouse, mother of a six-year-old and a six-month-old, and a NOLS and WMI instructor, I am particularly talented at designing schedules that respect family and work commitments.  Please take a look at the About page for more information about me and my racing history.  Use the Contact button on the top right of website if you have questions or would like to start working together.  I look forward to hearing from you.

“Liza was instrumental in helping me complete my first 50 mile run. I finished strong, happy and healthy. The training plan I received was thorough and Liza is always quick in responding to all my questions ranging from nutrition to pacing and even the mental hardships of an ultra. My endurance not only increased after Liza’s instruction, but my speed has improved significantly too as I saw my marathon time decreased by over an HOUR from last year. Liza’s knowledge, experience and passion for ultras has definitely given me an edge out there.”
-Tim Smith, Cactus Rose 50 mile finisher

“Liza has been coaching me for about 4 months. In that time I have completed my first and second hundred milers. When we started working together, Liza was able to assess where I was and put together a program that capitalized on my current fitness level and focused my efforts toward my next event. The plan Liza provided was balanced and allowed for recovery and kept me challenged. After completing my first 100 Liza adapted my training plan to allow for recovery with an eye toward the next race 7 weeks away. Due to this I was able to successfully finish my second 100 coming in under 22 hours.

I feel confident that the experience Liza brings to the table will allow her to be successful with any client training for any goal.”
