Confidence On Race Day -Shoutout To MTA Coaching

Here’s an email we received from a coaching client named Melissa Rutzen who ran this year’s hot but glorious Chicago Marathon. Success stories like these inspire us coaches to keep working hard to bring out the best in runners.

Hi Angie and Trevor,

It has now been a little over a week since the Chicago marathon and my heart is as full with gratitude as ever towards you two and the MTA community that you’ve cultivated. It was my first marathon and I crossed the finish line with a smile on my face and tears of joy in my eyes.

It was hotter than I was hoping for but I was happy to finish with a time of exactly 4:25:00. Continue Reading →

Everything I Need to Teach I Learned in Marathon Training [Part I]

I’m a teacher and, much to my students’ chagrin, I’m full of ulterior motives.

Yes, I want them to understand how to construct an essay that helps them convey their best understanding in the most powerful way possible but (Shhh! Don’t tell them this part!) some things are more important than any one academic skill or set of facts.

What could be more important, you ask? (Okay, so you didn’t ask. You’re an adult and you know that plenty of things are more important to you. Probably running, for one. Don’t worry, I’m getting there!) Continue Reading →

Hip Flexor Pain and Pain in the Front of the Hip

Pain in the hip flexor or front of the hip/leg can be associated with several possible causes. When you experience pain in the front of the hip, and it doesn’t have an obvious mechanism of injury (such as tripping in a hole when running), then it’s almost always a repetitive motion injury or related to poor posture and/or biomechanics.

The location of pain in the hip flexor region can range from mid-thigh to the groin area to the lower stomach (from the belly button to the PSIS, which is the posterior superior iliac spine) or the front of the pelvic bone just up and lateral to the groin area where the primary hip flexor (psoas) originates.
