Matt Fitzgerald

Head Coach

Matt started running on April 19, 1983, one day after watching his father complete the Boston Marathon. This began a lifelong love affair with the sport. Having completed 50 marathons of his own, authored more than 30 books, cofounded the world’s largest online provider of endurance training resources, and coached dozens of his fellow runners to their goals, Matt lives by the motto, “Let your passion, not your ability, decide how far you go.” That’s why he created Dream Run Camp–to enable runners of all abilities who share his passion for the sport to see just how far they can go.

Lauren Clement

Assistant Coach

Lauren left a great job in her longtime home of Austin, Texas, and moved to Flagstaff just to be a part of Dream Run Camp. Folks, that’s what chasing a dream looks like! A licensed veterinarian, Lauren now divides her time between providing end-of-life pet care (you won’t find a bigger animal lover) and making sure every Dream Runner has a great experience (often by running with them). Having only discovered running in her late twenties, Lauren is making up for lost time, setting PR’s left and right and relishing the journey.

Betsy Mueller

Local Ambassador

A Wisconsin native, Betsy found her heart in the great outdoors. She was drawn to the small town, the majestic peaks, and the surrounding nature in Flagstaff, AZ. Once her two eldest daughters graduated from college and ventured into the world, she, her husband Chris and their youngest daughter Vivien relocated to Flagstaff July 4th 2023.

Even with the demands and joys of raising a nurturing, loving family, Betsy’s passion for running remained steady. Yet, life’s journey took an unexpected turn when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2021.

The following year, she struggled with the challenges MS brought into her life. Acknowledging the struggles and the unpredictable nature of her condition, deep hope emerged inside of her. She came across Dream Run Camp and asked Matt to be her coach. Through her resilience and boundless determination, she expresses her belief that life challenges need not define us, but can drive us towards greatness.

Betsy is taking on a purpose to be the first person with MS to run across the U.S. not just for herself, she aims to inspire others, facing similar challenges to chase their dreams, fearlessly and to break misconceptions about MS.

Along with her commitment to running, she finds fulfillment in volunteering at a local hospice, where she offers companionship to those in need.
