About The Club

Welcome to The Public Run Club. We're a group of people who started assembling in Austin, Texas to participate in the daily practice, ambition, and enjoyment of running together.

Now, we've expanded into a group of runners around the world who cheer each other on in the process of achieving our personal goals. 

Together, we've learned that our performance sharpens and our enjoyment expands (both on and off the track) when we tend to our internal cues, so we're in hot pursuit of more deeply integrating our bodies and minds through running. 

If you’re looking for a way to jump in, start with our Mind Training Guide for Runners, which will help you fold 7 new mindful techniques into your daily routine, download our free One-Week Running Challenge to start reframing your relationship to running, or join us for one of our in-person running camps and retreats as we explore the intersection of running and embodiment (and play really hard.)  

You can run with us. 

Meet The Coach 


My name is Karly, and I coach members of The Public Run Club. 

I'm about simple running: if you want to run, then run.  It is the most accessible sport in the world after all (be wary of anyone who tells you otherwise). Technically, all you really need is a pair of shoes.

I'm here to keep it simple for you, too.

I've been running since I was seven. Since then, I've completed more 5k's, 10k's, and half-marathons than I can count. I've run a marathon at my exact goal time, and also joined the cross country in college as a walk-on. 

As an athlete, adopting mindful and embodiment techniques 10 years ago was the element that most enriched my lifelong relationship with running: it prompted a year-long running streak, allowed me to rehab a knee-surgery while staying positive, and launched me into competitive training and racing.

Most importantly, it allowed me to practice a higher level of athleticism and a deeper level of mind/body integration without feeling like I had to beat my body into submission to reach my (running and non-running) goals. 

Regardless of your running history, goals, and enjoyment-level, I believe there's an invitation for you to deepen your training by knowing, trusting, and enjoying your mind and body. 

I hope to see you on the trails, but don't hesitate to reach out to me at karly@thepublicrunclub.com if you have any questions along the way. 

Please be grateful for your mind and body today!
