The Drury Hotels

If you’ve been listening to our podcast for a while you’ve probably heard us talk about the Drury Hotel Company.

I stayed at their Pittsburgh location this month when I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon. It is one of their newer locations, a beautiful downtown building that they restored. My room was just blocks from the starting line.

Drury became our first sponsor back when we were just fledgling podcasters. Continue Reading →

He is an absolute rockstar and I’m so grateful for his expertise.” -Carly

What It Feels Like to Run Your First Marathon

Here’s a message from the Academy Facebook group that illustrates the thrill of finishing strong at your first marathon.

Paula Soto completed the Bakersfield Marathon on November 12th 2017 with a time of 4:34:45.5!

What I love is that she ’embraced the suck’ of the finial miles and finished with a smile on her face . . . ready to do it again!

Listen to the joy in her words, we can’t say it better than this, Continue Reading →


Shout Out to Melisa and Bradley!

Big congrats to Academy member Melisa Robles and her fiancé Bradley who completed their 3rd Marine Corps Marathon together recently. Check out their signature finish line photo. We love it!

I can’t say enough great things about Marathon Training Academy! Angie and Trevor are absolutely amazing with their podcast and support! I really enjoy the private Facebook group full of runners on similar goals from all over the world. I’ll be using their training program again for my next marathon but promise to keep the cross training included. -Melisa


This Race is About to Sell Out!

Registration for the MTA Virtual Half Marathon has exceeded our initial estimates and we’ve already added to our order of hats and medals.

Just a heads up that we have only 17 hats and medals left and once they are gone we will be closing down registration.

We now have runners from all over the world -47 states and 18 countries. Our special Facebook group is up and it’s fascinating to see where people will be running. You can join in the fun here:

Shout Out to Gwen Lingenfelter!

Big shoutout to former Academy member Gwen Lingenfelter who is sharing her passion for running today at her company’s wellness fair.

From Gwen . . .

“I only started running in 2011. The MTA podcasts & lessons are the one thing that helped me to learn to run, to quit smoking, and to understand that running is my fountain of youth!

Because of that, in 2013, I did 12 half marathons (one a month). Ten of those were Rock ‘n’ Roll Series races so I achieved all the Heavy Medals that year.

The above picture is my RnR Nashville Finisher Medal. I also did New Orleans, Dallas, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, San Jose, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Antonio, plus two local halves that same year. -Gwen
