INJURIES, RUNNING, NUTRITION
Dr. Brianne Showman Brown has been a licensed physical therapist since 2006. Since that time, she has been helping athletes get to peak health and performance. She incorporates nutrition programming into her coaching in order to help you heal faster from injuries, recover faster from your training sessions, and overall perform better.
Being a runner herself, she understands the desire to want to push through the pain, not wanting to take time off, and getting back to activity as soon as possible when required to take time off. She does her best to keep you active in the things you are able to do, modifying as necessary, but not taking you completely away from your training.
Running history: She ran cross country and track in high school and one year in college before transitioning to half marathons and marathons. She has run 5 half marathons and 3 full marathons. She has also been on teams for both the Ragnar road series and the Ragnar trail series.
