“Since working with Shira, I’ve PRed in the 5k, 10k, and half marathon and actually feel strong while I’m running.” ~ Morgan


Running Beyond Baby is a signature running program for moms and moms to be.  Well, for any female that is but I have a place in my heart for the women out there juggling kids, careers, chores, and their run.

Let’s be honest and agree that there is tons of stuff out there for runners.  Training plans, downloadables, guides but none of them are geared towards mamas, teaching us how to train to run or showing us how to do it with our postpartum bodies and hormones.

There is a BIG difference between training to run and running to train especially when it comes to mamas.

Most people run to lose weight only to end up gaining weight in the end not to mention wrecking the metabolism.  Let’s not even talk about not getting faster or stronger.

When we run to lose weight, we get softer, create out of whack hormones and basically eat ALL the food.  Why?  Because we are trying to use running as a way to lose weight which is basically spinning your wheels.

It simply cannot happen.

Training to run the RunningBeyondBaby way, leaves you stronger, less injured, more efficient and of course more confident because rather than just running, you are crushing your times.

Oh and you show up looking fit because you have finally changed the shape of your body.  You are no longer searching for body change you desire.

“I now run 1-2 times per week, have shed 20 pounds and actually got faster!” ~ Dawne

From Other Mother Runners

Pre-Shira I would run 3-5 times a week depending on what I was training for. My pace was always in the mid 12 min miles. I also was 20 pounds heavy and could never shed the weight no matter how much I ran or how many points I counted. After starting strength training, I now run 1-2 times a week and do your workouts 4x per week. I am now consistently running 9:50 min/mile pace for over 3 miles. That’s about 2.5 minutesoff my time running less per week!!!! I’ve also shed the extra 20 pounds and don’t count a thing
I haven’t run any races since I had Dean in September BUT, I feel stronger running now that I did 7 months pp with Roy, and I am running significantly less, only 1-2 days a week and always with my double stroller. I have focused on pelvic floor and strength training this time around and feel so much stronger when I run. Can’t wait to race this summer!
Doing only walking with weights and no excessive cardio/runs-I was able to run 1.5 miles at an easy pace, right after not running for over 6 months. I thought I’d be super sore and hurting, but I just felt great!!
Pre baby I was running 4 days a week, no strength training at all. Very consistent at a 10/min mile at any distance, but if I skipped a run day I felt like I took two steps backwards…since working with you for 3 months, I’ve been running 1 day a week, 4 miles. If time allows, will get in a weekend interval. I feel incredibly strong, I don’t seem to lose anything in endurance.

Who Is Running Beyond Baby NOT For?


Women who want to spend hours running


Women who are not open to learning a new way


Women who are not willing to lift some heavy shit to become a better runner


Women who already think they have reached their running potential

The truth is that running more is the old way.

Who Is Shira?

Hi. I’m Shira Nelson of MomBeyondBaby™.

Not only am I a mom of two, I am a runner. A mother runner that is! I am also a RCAA certified running coach, a hormonal fat loss specialist, personal trainer and a postnatal fitness specialist so I know a thing or two about this stuff :). In the past 15 years I have run well over 200 races from 5K to marathon.

I spent years running because I wanted to lose weight only to end up puffy, overweight, and injured. I was insatiable, I had zero energy and my metabolism was wrecked. I’ve run the pavement, the trails, with a single stroller, and now with a double stroller but the difference is how I do running. How I train to be a mother runner. I am so proud to bring this program to you.

From Other Mother Runners

Prior to working with Shira my times for a 5k were in the 27-28 min range, they are now closer to 25-26 min. My ankle that I have perpetually had issues with has causing no issues. I am only able to get one day of running in a week generally. (About 3-4 miles) and have ran two 10ks with times matching my best (50 mins 12 secs and 51 mins 3 secs) when I was consistently running 7 or so miles 5x a week. Run less, lift more and I’m killing it thanks to 4 months of Shira.
I have been running for a while and had generally been at the same old pace. My speed increases were pretty slow. Since adding more strength training into my life, across the board all my times have been better. Since working with Shira, I’ve PRed in the 5k, 10k, and half marathon. Staying consistent with strength training makes it so I walk to the start of most races knowing I’m faster and stronger.
Before I ran because I felt like I had to because I thought I was fat and if I ran I felt like I accomplished something and running was the only way I need to lose weight. The more you run, the skinnier, right? WRONG! Now I do it just because I enjoy it. I know I don’t HAVE to, but I WANT to. Which is something you’d never hear me say before. Now I run with a purpose. I enjoy it. I love pushing myself on a run and seeing what my body can do. I enjoy listening to my body and knowing my limit. I love being alone with my music and the pavement. Oh, run less is best… as far that, for me, I’ve realized if I run too much, I end with aches and pains… and not muscle soreness. But “I over did it” soreness. I’ve learned 1-2 3 mile runs a week are plenty.

Weights help me run stronger because I can feel my running form is so much better since I started lifting. I’m not hunched anymore, my legs are much more defined, so my form is stronger. My back, neck and shoulders don’t hurt, even though I’m pushing a stroller because I’m standing up straighter. Also, I am not running to punish myself anymore. I’m running because I truly enjoy it, which makes my runs stronger mentally.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time will this take?
This is a 12-week program. There are three different training plans included and each will call for 4 days minimum of exercise between running, strength training and yoga. None of the workouts are more than 40 minutes. If you are currently training for a longer race and want to do long runs, that is your choice as this program does not have any long runs programmed.
Will my body change in 12 weeks?
Yes. 100% yes.  Your body composition is going to change because you are going to be working with your hormones instead of against them.  Get ready, you are gonna see some definition in your body.
Can I do the running portion on a treadmill?
Absolutely.  You will be given a pace chart for the treadmill for your running workouts as well as a treadmill guide to make the most out of your running especially with things like intervals and strides.
I want to do this program but I can't start right now. Can I wait to start or do I need to start right away?
Great question. You will have lifetime access to RunningBeyondBaby so you can go through the program at your own pace.
What equipment do I need for the strength workouts?
Great question!  The strength workouts can be done at home with a set of dumbbells but some will utilize a barbell for heavier loads (think legs).  If you do not have access you can certainly get results at home with a set of dumbbells.
What if I am not running at all?
Then you are in the right place.  My advice, sign up for Running Beyond Baby and then pick your first 5K because you will be ready to run in 12 weeks.
What if I am just starting or coming back from an injury?
After being cleared by a doctor this will be perfect for you as the program is written to focus more on strength and less on overuse injuries.
I am already running and training for a longer race, would this benefit me?
Absolutely.  Doesn’t everyone want to cut their split time?  No really, by building strength and becoming a faster 5K runner you can only imagine what this will do for your endurance.  Running Beyond Baby does focus on Vo2 max for shorter distances like a 5 or 10K so you can crush those while prepping for the next half.
Can I do this program pregnant or early postpartum?
Yes, because the content in Running Beyond Baby is designed for mamas.  This program will teach you how to ease back into running after baby and also give you the “how tos” on running pregnant.
Can my husband do this with me or is this only for moms?
Great question!  Of course.  The only portions of the program that are “mom specific” are the bonus videos and the nutritional “stuff.”  The running and strength portions are absolutely gender friendly.  You know what they say, couples who train together, stay together ?
Is there any other coaching that goes along with this?
There is a closed Facebook group for all the mamas who have purchased Running Beyond Baby.  I will not be coaching in the group at this time but I will be in there from time to time.
