The first main stop on our 2019 camping trip out West (which Trevor is calling our Ultramarathon Sufferfest Extravaganza) was the beautiful Charlevoix Marathon along the shores of Lake Michigan.
This was my 58th marathon, 45th state, and 4th fastest marathon.
The day went better than I expected and I managed to squeak out a BQ and get 1st place in my age group.
Let me tell you all about it . . .
The duties associated with being a pilot are challenging. The training requirements for running a marathon also are challenging.
“There are frequently unexpected schedule changes daily because of weather or maintenance issues,” says United Express Airlines pilot and four-time marathoner Courtney Schoch. “Unfortunately, training runs or workouts are usually the first thing that gets eliminated because sleep is the top priority when I get to the hotel on a short overnight. Pilots must be well rested and alert in order to perform our job safely.”
For Schoch, her running journey started with an impromptu jog on a trail. She has always been healthy, took precautions and ate healthy. Then a phone call delivered a dose of reality. Continue Reading →
When training for a marathon, sleep should be an important part of your schedule. Sleep studies on marathon runners are surprisingly scarce, but one study looking at elite tennis players found those who increased their sleep time to ten hours a night ran faster sprints than usual.

And in the quick tip segment, Angie will explain how to intelligently gauge your response to training so you know if what you’re doing is working.
Just thought I’d share this really nice comment Angie received from one of our coaching clients named Mike Irwin. Mike is a Canadian and we actually had lunch with him when we drove through British Columbia last year.
Hey Angie, I wanted to thank Trevor and you for pairing me up with Coach Dominque. I’m a totally different runner now and I’ve finally gotten to the point where I run continuously after starting out as a Galloway runner. It’s the best money I’ve ever spent. I’m still dealing with a 58 year old body, but a 58 year old body that’s way fitter then it’s ever been! -Mike
We are so thrilled to hear that Mike is benefitting from MTA Coaching! Here are a couple points that stick out to me from his comment, Continue Reading →

Angie and I were on episode 27 of the Jerod Martin Health Podcast to talk about our favorite marathons, what makes elite runners different, what we can learn from the elites, advice for beginners, the runner’s high, what working with a coach can do, and more. Listen here.
While it may seem like your wealthy friends look good because they can afford to enlist in a personal trainer, there is actually a much deeper connection between your fitness and your finances. According to research, those who tend to overspend on their purchases, tend to overeat as well, and vice versa. The more this cycle continues, the more they tend to feed off each other.
