Finally! Now You Can Train for and Finish a Marathon

This information helped a busy middle age runner who had been plagued by injuries for years to easily qualify for 7 Boston Marathons in the last 7 years.  

Now, it’s YOUR turn to put these proven concepts to work.

(Even if you’ve tried other marathon training or coaching plans)

Dear Fellow Runner:

It’s true that thousands of ordinary people will make an attempt to complete a marathon this year, but many will fail.

Are you thinking of running a marathon, but don’t know how to train for a 26.2 mile race? If you’re not sure how to prepare for a marathon or you trained for one before and got hurt, sick or simply didn’t reach your goal, it’s likely you only need to make a few simple adjustments.

I’ve written this message just for you!


Most marathoners fail

Of all people who sign up for a marathon, many will get hurt at some point prior to the race or their training. Others will run their race and ultimately finish, but during the race, they will either “hit the wall” or experience extreme discomfort, so they walk or hobble the last miles, finishing miserably.

Maybe you have already experienced either of the scenarios I describe above. I did in my first marathon. If you don’t train properly, you risk injury or not being prepared.


The problem with most marathon training plans is that they lack any personalization.  They are essentially “one size fits all.”

Most runners are at differing levels of fitness, age, body size or they are busy people who don’t have a lot of time to train (as much as a professional runner does), so it doesn’t make sense for a 47 year old woman with a career, family and busy life to use a marathon training plan that’s designed for a 29 year old single man or vice-versa. 

If you want personalized training information from a coach, you typically have to pay expensive monthly or long term fees.  

The good news is there’s a proven marathon training plan available that has been developed and used by an experienced runner & RRCA certified coach who started running marathons over 30 years ago…this plan is a comprehensive training program, that will get you to the starting line healthy, strong and confident.

Included with this plan, I will show you how to personalize the workouts and paces, so it meets your specific goals and athletic ability.  






A Marathon Training Plan That Helped Me Qualify for 7 Boston Marathons (since 2011) and Continues to Keep Me Injury Free 


I’ve got an answer that works. Here’s my story:

I have been running for 39+ years. My first marathon was in 1986. I had to walk much of the last 6 miles to finish. I ran a 2:40 marathon in 1991. Yet, as I got older, I often seemed to get injured.  As a busy professional with a family, I also found it very challenging to find the time and motivation to train for a marathon. Much of the time, due to injuries or what I perceived as a lack of time to train, I often didn’t have the motivation or confidence to train for a 1/2 or full marathon. 

Does this sound familiar? 

With every one of my injuries, I learned how to treat and prevent the problem from recurring.  I now consider myself the “Crash Test Dummy” for middle age marathoners, because I have not only suffered through numerous injuries, but I have also tried and tested many different ways to train for a marathon.

What I have discovered is that due to the lack of personalization with most training plans, it’s not easy to find a plan that will work for a 35+ male or female runner. So I took the time to complete the RRCA Coaching Certification ​Program. RRCA Certified Coaches work with runners and emphasize the use of intelligent training plans that are based on a scientific body of knowledge and designed to help a runner achieve their goals, while minimizing the risks of injuries. This also includes complete strength training and nutrition programs.


My comprehensive plan provides a diverse set of proven workouts, a nutrition plan to fuel your exercise and speed recovery and a variety of cross-fit, strength workouts and stretches to build strength and prevent injury.
