The Fit Marriage Show welcomes running expert Matt Frazier of No Meat Athlete.

Matt recently ran his first Boston Marathon after qualifying with a time under 3 hours and 10 minutes, even though he took nearly 5 hours to complete his first marathon.  Matt is not a “natural” runner, yet he’s learned exactly what it takes to be successful with endurance training.

That’s why I’m so excited to have Matt join us as we drill down into what it really takes to go from a casual 5K finisher to a happy and successful half marathon runner.  Many in the Fit Marriage community have expressed an interest in going further after experiencing the fun of a 5K run (if you haven’t picked up our free 5K training plan, be sure to do so).

After you’re done listening to the interview, be sure to go download Matt’s free report15 Training Mistakes That Can Crush Your Half Marathon Dreams” which is fantastic!

This interview is focused squarely on getting you from 5K to Half-Marathon.  Here are a few of the topics we cover with Matt:

  • The major steps you need to take to progress from 5K to 13.1 miles of quality running
  • How to mentally prepare for successful Half Marathon training
  • The biggest mistakes runners make in their Half Marathon training and how to avoid them
  • Why Matt maintains a vegan diet to increase his performance (but why his advice applies even for us meat eaters)
  • And much more!
