Item of the Week

Foam Roller

A must have for any athlete!  A foam roller can  be used to rehab injured muscles and also as part of warmup and cooldown routines. Rolling improves circulation which gets the body ready for a workout and helps it recover afterward. It is also great for preparing the muscles for stretching by breaking down knots that may limit range of motion.

This year I am fortunate enough to be able to give my 10th official Badwater Ultramarathon another try to help raise funds for AIDS orphans.  Pam Reed, who also lives here in the Tetons, will be going for her 9th Badwater at the same time.  Both of us have won Badwater twice and would love for you to train with us here in the Tetons...for FREE!  Our journey begins on Tuesday, June 4th at 6 pm for dinner followed by 5 days of intense training, including participation in the Jackson Hole Half Marathon on Saturday, June 8th and a white water rafting trip!  If you are interested in participating please email Lisa at or visit the Dreamchasers website for additional information.      

Additionally, I am also honored to announce that Marathon in Training will be featuring a podcast interview with me to discuss my 10th Badwater journey.  Details will be provided as they become available. 

Much love to all,

Lisa & Jay Batchen

Ask the Coach
Each week we will pick one fitness/nutrition question submitted by you, our clients, and feature it in this section along with an answer to the question.  All questions will be answered by one of our great coaches here at Dreamchasers.  Please indicate if there is a specific coach that you would like your question directed to.


Julie: do you prefer to do speed work on the track or on the treadmill?



The Treadmill.  I like to hold pace and see gains on the screen in front of me.  I will never touch that dial  and always know it is a constant environment which I can increase speed from.  Besides, you have to keep up the pace or you "hit the wall"...literally!

Send your questions to: with the subject heading "Ask the Coach", then check in next week to see if your question is featured! 
Recipe of the Week
Thai prawn stirfry
Thai prawn, ginger & spring onion stir-fry

  • 200g raw, peeled tiger prawns from a sustainable source
  • 1 green Thai chilli , chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves , 1 crushed and 2 finely sliced
  • 1 bunch coriander , leaves and stalks separated
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • juice 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 3cm piece ginger , finely sliced, then shredded
  • 8 spring onions , finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper , thinly sliced
  • 85g water chestnuts , sliced
  • 100g beansprouts
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • egg or rice noodles , to serve
  • lime wedges, to serve

  1. Put the prawns in a bowl. Put the chilli, crushed garlic, coriander stalks (snip these up using scissors first) and caster sugar in a spice grinder or small food processor and whizz together. Add half of the lime juice and the fish sauce, then pour this over the prawns.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok, add the ginger and spring onions and fry for 1 min. Add the red pepper and fry for 1 min, until the pepper starts to soften. Add the water chestnuts and bean sprouts, and toss together until the bean sprouts start to wilt. Add the soy sauce and a really good grind of black pepper, then tip the lot into a serving dish.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the wok and add the prawns, lifting them out of their juices. Toss for 1-2 mins until they turn pink, add the marinade and swirl the wok quickly, then tip the lot onto the veg. Snip over the coriander leaves and sprinkle on the remaining lime. Serves over noodles with extra lime for squeezing over.
