Shoutout to MTA Coaching

Here is a nice FB post from Academy member Anissa W. about the progress she made working with her MTA Coach. ❤️

“Today is the last day of my coaching with Coach Dominique Hamel and I wanted to share my MTA coaching experience.

I signed up with her about 15 months ago because I was scared of hurting myself because I had no idea what to do to train for my first full marathon. She not only got me through my first marathon injury free, she also helped me transition from run/walk to just running.

After that first marathon I wanted to do another and I wasn’t ready to give up my coaching, so she coached me through a second marathon. Then my husband signed us up for the Dopey Challenge at Disney and she coached me through that too. It’s been quite a journey Coach!! Three full marathons and 2 half marathons and numerous 5ks.

Thank you for being a part of it! If anyone is considering coaching I would highly recommend it and I especially recommend Coach Dom.” 💙🏃🏼‍♀️ -Anissa W.

A Runner Friendly Hotel

I just got back from running the San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon. While in San Antonio I stayed at the fabulous Drury Plaza Hotel River Walk which was only The hotel 2 blocks from the starting line!

Drury has been a long time sponsor of the MTA Podcast and I’ve stayed at 3 dozen of their 150+ locations around the US. What we love about them is the comfortable beds, pool for the kids, fitness center, free food and drinks in the evening, and late check-out every time we’ve asked.
