Honey Badger Run Company was created in 2018 to assist runners of all experience levels learn to run faster, more efficiently and with less impact on the body.

By reducing fatigue and improving mental durability while running, we have seen runners improve both finish times AND the time it takes to recover after an event.

We also partner with up and coming fitness tech like SQOOSH sweatbands and BOCO headwear to give our runners the opportunity to purchase at discounted rates. HBRC believes that if you have the right gear, it improves your chances of success 10x.

One of our biggest partners is the Galloway Training Program. Jeff is a close personal friend and has certified us to work directly with runners and coach them in his renowned Run/Walk/Run method that has helped hundreds of thousands of runners cross the finish line injury free and with a smile on their face.

Here is an overview of what our runners receive:

Initial Consultation with Weekly Followups
Magic Mile Analysis
Personalized Schedule and Run Journal
Text/Social Media Support
Trainer-led Runs (2 per month)
Assistance with Safe Running Routes


We are especially interested in runners coming back from injury. Our methods target low impact and low fatigue workouts, which if you ask any physical therapist, is the best way to get back to what you love doing best and to prevent what laid you up in the first place.

Scott founded Honey Badger Run Company to be a place where fitness enthusiasts, runners, tri-atheletes, crossfitters and anyone looking to cross boundaries and achieve the “theoretical” unachievable could congregate and support each other and their goals.

While serving in the United States Marine Corps, running was second nature and an expectation that all Marines could run without injury. He brought that ideal with him to partner with America’s run coach, Jeff Galloway, to bring a new way to run to the St Louis area. Through that venue he has brought countless runners, new and old, across the finish line, injury free.

Personally, he has run 4 marathons, three of them as part of the WDW 48.6Mile Dopey Challenge, as well as the Marine Corps Marathon. He considers himself a half marathoner at heart, with over 50 to his credit. He is a “middle of the front of the packer” who now runs more for others than his own personal goals, pacing numerous RunDisney and other various races.

Scott is a honey badger at heart and tries to instill the “take what you want” attitude in anyone who trains with or for him. HoneyBadgerUP is his mantra and looks forward to sharing that with the world.

Our Founders

Kelley, co-founder and social media guru of Honey Badger Run Company, did not start running consistently until she was in her 30s. Exercise and fitness was always a part of her lifestyle, with her background in Health Education, but running was not. After running her first half marathon in her late 20’s she thought it was a “bucket list” item to just cross off, but as many of you may relate to, she had the running fever.

She continued to run for fitness after that.

She did not complete her next marathon until after she had her first child in 2011 at 35. Little did she know, she was also running with her 2nd child. Diapers and running shoes behind her, our founder has since completed over 50 half marathons – , over 25 marathons and one 50 mile ultra marathon.

Not only does she live the running life but she also coaches others in not just running but also nutrition and leading a healthy lifestyle thanks to her health education background. Her goal for this community is to support and educate all those that love running and strive to be a better runner!
