100 Mile Challenge is Now Live!

You’ve heard of the Mona Lisa . . . let me introduce you to The “Corona Lisa” 100 Mile Challenge. Perhaps my greatest masterpiece! 😆

This will be a unique challenge because it requires you to run (or walk) 100 miles between now and the end of the year. You accumulate the miles over a certain number of days, the goal is up to you. Some of you will be able to log 100 miles in 1 month, some faster some slower.

We also had a fun online Run Tracker built for you to log your miles, watch your progress, and unlock new digital badges. Plus we added some freebies from Coach Angie on the run tracker page.

Check out my video for all the details:

Officially A Marathoner!

Here is an inspiring post from one of our coaching clients named Alaina W. We want to wish her a huge congrats on completing her first marathon!!🙌

“I officially became a marathoner yesterday! I completed the Austin marathon in 5 hours, 30 minutes and 1 second! I explored all new levels of pain but I pushed through and found I am extremely capable of hard things. There were a lot of times I didn’t think crossing the finish line was going to be possible but that feeling when I finally did it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced.

I would like to thank MTA Coach Kristen who helped me bounce back from a severe asthma attack in July and made it possible for me to have this experience today! I would also like to thank all of you in the academy for your constant support and motivation! I have what it takes to run a marathon!

Already thinking I can beat my time, and the soreness hasn’t subsided yet. Guess this means I’m a real runner now!” Alaina 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.
