A long time listener to the MTA podcast named Pete D’Amico invited me onto his podcast to talk about my running story, tips for new runners, mind-blowing guests we’ve had on the show, Spartan racing, and low carb eating.
Look for me on episode #35. The interview starts at the 20:25 mark. 🙂
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 →
Big congrats to Carly Crevier on earning a PR at the Glass City Marathon in Toledo, Ohio, last weekend! 👊 This is what we love to hear . . .

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!

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