The new Believe Training Journal was inspired…by YOU!

Authors Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas created the Believe Training Journal to help you become the runner you were meant to be. In the new Electric Blue edition, over one hundred runners from the Believe community are featured in the colorful end sheets—because we train, dream, and believe in community, and the shared running experience inspires us all.

The Believe Training Journal has it all: designated grids for recording workout information as well as space to process and plan. The journal offers a full year of undated weeks, an annual calendar, worksheets, quizzes, lists, and plenty of room for notes. Lauren and Ro share their wisdom and experience on training, racing, recovery, and more—all to help you find balance in your running and to make you a better athlete.

A good running journal makes the miles make sense. Use this training tool to learn more from your runs, to dig deeper, and to join a running community that believes in you.

About the Author

Lauren Fleshman has been a runner since she was 13 years old and 78 pounds of scrawny, scrappy tomboy. A top high school recruit out of California, Lauren went on to win five NCAA titles and 15 All-American honors while at Stanford. In her 12 years as a pro she won USA championships and international competitions, represented Team USA many times, and finished as high as 7th in the world amid many years of injuries and setbacks. Lauren is passionate about the pursuit of embodied performance, authenticity, and courageously creating your own definitions of success as a pathway to joy through sport. She is married to pro triathlete Jesse Thomas, and they are the proud parents of Jude and Zadie. They live and train in Bend, Oregon, where their performance bar company, Picky Bars, is based.

Róisín McGettigan-Dumas grew up running the beaches, trails, and roads of Wicklow, Ireland. She left home for a chance to compete in track and cross-country at Providence College, where she was a four-time All-American. In 2008 Ro represented Ireland in the 3K steeplechase at the Olympics. She was awarded the bronze medal in the 1500 meters at the 2009 European Athletics Indoor Championships and still holds the Irish record for the indoor mile. While she’s retired from running competitively, Ro remains invested in the sport as an entrepreneur and certified sports psychology consultant in Providence, Rhode Island, where she lives, trains, and juggles family life with her husband, Myles, and daughters, Hope and Ava.
