Run with Nutrition is owned and operated by Certified Holistic Health Coach, Running Coach and Personal Trainer, Karen Welby.
I am a graduate of Lehigh University where I received my Bachelors of Science in Marketing (and a minor in Track & Field!). I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach and a Board Certified Member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories, learned innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I work in internet marketing where I manage social media platforms, e-newsletter, and public relations for various clients.
I have many years of experience with running, fitness and exercise, both personally and professionally. I have experience as a Collegiate Cross Country / Track & Field Coach with a specialty in Mid-Distance and Distance running. During my time at Stevens Institute of Technology, I coached athletes of all levels and abilities. I currently teaches group exercise classes, work as a Personal Trainer and help teach weight loss/nutrition education sessions at Innovation Fitness Solutions.
My personal experience with running began in 8th grade, when I decided to join the Track & Field team. After competing at the National level in High School, I pursued a Division 1 collegiate athletic career in Cross Country / Track & Field on an athletic scholarship at Lehigh University. My collegiate career focused on competing in middle distance events, with my main races being the 800m and 400m. (If I had to pick I liked the 400m more but was better at the 800m!) During my senior year of college, I was named Track & Field team captain and established a new school record in the outdoor 800meter – and other relays. Running has been a huge part of my life over the past 15 years and I continue to compete in a variety of road races throughout the Northeast.

Health Coaching. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, running, training and preventive health. With these skills and knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with numerous clients and help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “road-map to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. I am confident that I will be able to assist you in setting short term and long term goals and developing action plans to achieve them.
