We are so happy to welcome eight time marathoner, Laura Peifer to the Suite Run Podcast! 
Laura is a certified integrative nutritionist and she is currently pursuing a Masters in Nutrition/RD. Laura is mom to two girls, ages 11 and 7 years old (fun fact: Laura's blog was entitled Mommy Run Fast as a nod to her daughter calling out to run faster!) and lives in South Orange, NJ with her family. In this conversation we talk about Laura's running, including her recent big PR at the Philly Marathon in November! We also talk about her super interesting career and how she juggles a very busy life with a lot of running. In the second half of our chat, Laura shares her favorite places to RUN, dine out, race, gaze at the views across the way in NYC, and more in West Orange, NJ.

Enjoy our conversation!
