I have benefited with Laurie providing guidance and accountability to help me be more consistent and targeted in my training. I am a masters “has been” runner that she is helping me to find improvements in my running and set realistic goals and expectations. Better performance is harder to find I get older and I have had some health set backs along the way, Laurie helps guide me to keep reaching and trying. I am grateful for her knowledge, have fun attitude and overall she has made training a team effort rather than me just slogging away at miles on my own. I also appreciate her incorporation of strength and drills to improve running mechanics.

Laurie is fantastic. She is attentive, responsive and made an individualized plan for me. I feel like I’m getting stronger and making progress injury free.

I started working with coach Laurie six months ago. As a seasoned self-trained marathon runner I was unsure at first if an online coach was worth the cost and effort. Coach Laurie soon put those uncertainties to rest. Working with Laurie over the past 6 months I’ve seen consistent improvements in my physical and mental health. My risk of injury is at an all time low and love for the sport is at an all-time high and I’m recording personal best performances at distances from 5k to marathon, all while following a highly individualized training schedule that accommodates my family and work. From her positive attitude and uncanny ability to both listen to athlete needs and push athletes to strive harder or hold them back when needed, coach Laurie has exceeded every one of expectations and in my opinion is about as good as an online coach can get.

Laurie has been working with me for about 3 months. I was looking for a coach who is experienced in coaching older runners. She has been amazing. She is encouraging & gives me workouts & tools to bring me to the next level. I trust her completely and the results in my running performance have improved already. Laurie comments daily on my workouts & it’s just nice to know that she’s there & knows exactly what I am doing. She’s the greatest!

I never imagined I could run up to 6 days a week. I thought I was forever plagued by injuries and had to walk on egg shells each time I went out running. In just a few months, Laurie has helped me run distances consistently without any injuries. Being attentive and flexible with my schedule and updating my training plan whenever needed. If you’re new to running or a seasoned runner, Laurie can cater to it all. Highly recommended!

I am so thankful for the coaching that Laurie has provided in the few short months I’ve worked with her. She has been amazing at providing guidance, feedback, and encouragement through my entire program. It’s incredible the progress I’ve seen already.
I can’t recommend Laurie more highly. Seriously, she’s the best.

I have been working with Laurie for about two and a half months now. I am 57 years old an was just recovering from a stress fracture when I signed up. Laurie has been a great motivator, but has also done a great job of keeping the brakes on me so I don’t over-train and hurt myself again. I am thrilled with my progress to date. I have never been able to do my speed runs as fast as I am right now and my “normal” pace has improved dramatically. Laurie checks every run and workout and will provide feedback daily. She checks in regularly to make sure I’m not experiencing new pains that might turn into injuries. I email Laurie with questions or other life commitments and Laurie has always responded that day to my questions and works with me to make adjustments to my training schedule because life happens.

I have been working with Laurie for two months, and she has been very supportive and available to answer questions. I have been impressed by how knowledgeable she is about all aspects of running and feel like I am in the best hands to prepare me for my first marathon!

I have been working with Laurie for 7 months. I was looking for a coach that has experience coaching the older runner. Laurie was the perfect fit for me and helped me recover my running fitness after a nasty bout of plantar fasciitis that lasted over 6 months. I am now running injury free and loving it once again!

Laurie has been coaching me for about three months now as I prepare for my first ultra. Laurie been thorough in ensuring I understand why we’re performing workouts and how to best execute specific workouts. Laurie also provides a level of experience within running and coaching that is evident from the first meeting.
She has been attentive, understanding, and proved to be an experienced mentor for a tough journey. I will continue to trust
Laurie for my future endeavors in running and racing for these reasons and recommend her coaching to anyone.

I have been working with Laurie for several months and the experience has been incredible! I have been a runner for many years, but the amount of knowledge that Laurie provides is amazing. Her experience and expertise is very evident in her approach and how she coaches. She explains the reasons behind the different types of workouts and how it impacts improvement as a runner. I’ve learned so much! She is very responsive with questions and always gets back to me quickly. She is so encouraging, supportive and knows how to challenge and push me. I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt as a runner!

Laurie is a great coach and has helped me improve a lot as a runner.
Sheli Morrell –
Laurie is a very knowledgeable and encouraging coach. She has set up my schedule in away that is sensitive to my needs and time as a full time working mother. She understands when life happens, but also provides opportunities and workouts that are challenging and fun! Being a solo runner for so long, I tried to make up my own workouts, but wasn’t really sure if it was “right.”….nor did I have the time to figure it out or do the research. With Laurie’s help, I don’t have to plan anything, I’m running fast and feeling good!

I am on my 3rd month with coach Laurie and she has exceeded my expectations. She is not my first coach – but is by far the best . She always responds to any questions I have – and listens to the feedback from my workouts and plans my training accordingly . I 100% recommend coach Laurie .
Erica Hunsberger –
Coach Laurie has exceeded my expectations going into this process after self-coaching for a number of years. We hit the ground running right away and from the start she has been very attentive to my specific running needs. In only a little over 2 months I have gone from being at the bottom of fitness due to medical reasons to PR-ing a half marathon that I wasn’t even aiming for! Her creative workouts have enabled me to gain a lot of confidence that I was lacking in myself. Her knowledge and experience has allowed me to learn a lot about myself as a runner. Most importantly, the believes in me and my goals and will do whatever it takes to get me where I want to go.
Laurie is an awesome coach! She has been coaching me for just over a year, and I am running the highest mileage and the fastest paces I have ever run in my life. Her training plan is catered towards my personal needs as a runner. While it has helped me improve my speed and endurance, there is also a lot of emphasis on strength training and injury prevention. Working with Coach Porter has not only made me more physically fit but also has been a huge confidence booster. She always approaches training with a positive attitude, and her faith in me and my fitness makes me much more confident in myself. Training with her for the past year has been such a blessing, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is in need of an amazing coach!

Coach Laurie has been an excellent running coach for the past two months! The price you pay for is excellent and competitive considering her expertise and experience! You could have contact with her endlessly! She truly deserves the price you pay (probably even more) as she really invests her time and money for you. She’s really busy at times but she does so well at responding! She can help you reach fantastic goals! I’m reaching my goals gradually and very quickly at the same time! She’s considerate about so many aspects of your running which are really important! Depending on your goals, she does really well at planning workouts specifically for you and also at adjusting your schedule if you’re not able to workout at certain times. She will adjust your schedule accordingly. It’s best to let her know as soon as possible if your planned workout schedule conflicts with your own schedule! I found out about her after seeking for help in order to find the right coach! For me, she was the one! Good luck on reaching your running goals!

Working with Laurie has helped me to set PRs in every distance from the mile to half marathon. I am now comfortably and confidently running at paces I thought I had lost over the last 10 years. She has a very consistent and pragmatic approach in her programming that gradually pushes you just enough each week to create lasting gains over the course of a training cycle. She is also very willing to help with race planning and strategy. I highly recommend her to everyone!
Joyce Duval –
The training plan and schedule is great. Laurie is very knowledgeable. She is supportive, encouraging, and personable. She has a great sense of humor.

Laurie is an excellent coach — supportive, communicative, skilled in creating workouts. I am delighted with the progressive I’ve made in only 2.5 months. Her confidence in me and my potential has risen my own confidence. It’s led me to challenge myself in ways I couldn’t have imagined prior to her coaching.
