We are happy to welcome Kristy Baumann to the Suite Run Podcast

Kristy Baumann is a Registered Dietitian from St. Paul, Minnesota, who helps runners learn how to fuel properly to support their training and have a healthy relationship with food.

Kristy is on a mission to spread the message that restricting food and following fad diets is not the answer. Having a positive relationship with food is the foundation of fueling well as a runner.

In this conversation we chat with Kristy about her running journey and career as an RDN. In the second half we talk about the beautiful, historical city of St. Paul, MN. Kristy shares her favorite places to RUN, dine out, great races in St. Paul, fun options for families and so much more. We loved chatting with Kristy and fun fact, her sister Michelle was on the show on episode 89 - you can listen to that, HERE!

Enjoy our conversation!

Kristy's recommendations for St. Paul, MN:


1. Run along the Mississippi River (start at the Cathedral - which is at the end of the Twin Cities Marathon) and run along the river path. Paved with rolling hills - this is a beautiful run!
2. Lebanon Hills Park (Great trails)
3. Along the river path are various trails that you can veer off on a great trail.


1. Caffe Latte (On Grand Ave. There is a bakery, cafe + pizza and wine bar)
2. Cossetta's Italian Market and Pizzeria
3. Nelson's Ice Cream (Located in Stillwater)


1. Bed and Breakfasts or cozy cottages (In the historic district)
