A New Look + Online Coaching Services!

I am so excited to share with you the updated look of  Better With Veggies! I’ve been working with an amazing designer (who I will highlight in a future post) on a new logo – which I hope you guys love as much as I do. If you look carefully, you’ll see the triathlon theme woven into the logo – a swimmer, cyclist, and runner.

I’ve been hard at work getting everything ready for the new design. I thought that with my background in web development (back in the day) it would be a snap, but it wasn’t quite as easy as I remember. I guess I’m really rusty! I did learn a few tricks along the way, so let me know if you’re planning a redesign of your blog in the future and I’ll be happy to share what I learned (and save you some time)!

And now for the really big announcement…


Online Coaching Services!

I’m pleased to officially launch online coaching services for both running and multisport events! This is another thing that’s been in the works for a while and I really wanted to launch the new look and new coaching options together – success!! Kirk and I will both be coaching, so as you continue to read “we”, that’s why. =)

We are offering two different types of coaching options: Race Training Plans and Monthly Coaching.

  • Race Training Plans are for those who are looking for a customized schedule for an upcoming race, including: 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, Sprint Triathlon, and Sprint Duathlon. Instead of a generic schedule, each training plan will be customized for your current ability level, goals, limiters, and available training time.
  • Monthly Coaching is best for those that are looking for guidance on building a long-term training plan with multiple races and priorities or multisport athletes targeting longer races. We’ll build an Annual Training Plan (ATP) and design your training to maximize your performance throughout the year. Three levels on monthly coaching are available, with increasing levels of interaction and frequency of plan updates.

Interested in learning more? See the Coaching Services pages for a detailed breakdown of the benefits of our coaching plans, options, and pricing. You can also send me an email if you have any questions not covered there.


TWO Race Recaps Tomorrow

I’ll be back tomorrow with TWO race recaps from this weekend – Run the Rocks 10K Trail Race and Publix Half Marathon! For now, let me just say that I had a great time and finished both smiling. Honesty, running two races didn’t feel as crazy (and tiring) as I expected.

In case you missed it on Facebook, I’ll leave you with this early morning picture of my AWESOME TUTU!!



Questions for you:

  • I’d love to hear what you think about the new site and logo – like it, not your thing, don’t care either way?
  • Did you race this weekend? Brag on your accomplishment!!

      Thanks Laura – I’m really happy with the way everything has come together. It was great seeing you to, and depending on how this week goes, I’ll let you know on getting together. =)

      Thanks Alayna – I’m really excited about it. Isn’t it funny once you do something different how much you don’t like the old one anymore. :)

    I love it!!! The idea for making the swim, bike, run stand out like that was perfect! Better than when it was all green! And you look so darn cute in your tutu!

    • says

      Thanks Tiff – tutus are all the rage, you know. :) Yes – we need to get you healthy and running again. Would love to help you crush your next half!

    • says

      Thanks Lee!! It was great to see you too – I think Laura tried to convince me to wear the tutu to lunch, but it just didn’t go as well with the outfit. :)

    • says

      Thanks – and send your questions my way! I learned a lot and wish I had someone who could have helped me skip a few steps along the way. :)

      I say any race is a potential tutu race. Although maybe a trail race would be weird… ;)

    • says

      Thank you! And YES, I ran the half in the tutu and it was so much fun!! You get a lot of extra cheering running in a tutu, which made the race even better. :)

    I saw that tutu picture yesterday. Love it! And… love the new site look. You go lady with your races and your redesign! I could use a hlaf marathon training plan to increase my time a bit. :) I’ve never trained with a plan before. Happy Monday!

      Thanks – it was a very busy weekend at our house. :) You have great results for training without a plan, but I already knew you were awesome!! I’d love to help you whenever you’re ready!

    GREAT new look, Heather! I love the green color and the darker green border, and of course the new logo. Well done! Excited to hear about your race recaps and would DEFINITELY wear a tutu for a race…especially if I could run one with you! That’d be a blast. :D
