In this episode with we hang out with Martin Yelling and Tom Williams from the Marathon Talk Podcast. In this virtual meet up you will hear us discuss the work that goes into podcasting, getting dream guests, top picks for U.K. and U.S. marathons, angry fruitarians, recent running adventures, and more.

MTA Meets Marathon Talk


It’s been fun to collaborate with other podcasters through the years. Martin and Tom started their show around the same time we did back in 2010 (which makes them old in podcasting years). They have a loyal following around the world. I hope you enjoy listening to our virtual hang out.

Some Recommended Marathons

We all thought the big marathons like London, NYC, Chicago and Boston would be too obvious so here are some picks for smaller races in the U.K. and U.S..




  • I love the New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon. It’s in a charming city with great culture and food. Flat course too!
  • I haven’t done this one yet but lots of folks love the Disney World Marathon “Dopey Challenge” but be prepared to get up at 2:00 a.m. to get on the bus and spend lots of money.

    Tapering means slowing down and most runners get geared up to run long and their minds tell them that slowing down is wrong. Every runner is different and needs to learn the most important rule of running. That rule is to learn HOW TO LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. There are some runners that do not need to taper. Just as the same training program does not apply to ALL runners, tapering does not apply to all. I know several ultra runners that do not require to taper for a marathon.
    I enjoy reading your e-mails. They are very informative.
