Favorite Exercise Quote:
“Fitness is pushing through your workout when you don’t feel like it, because you know what you do today will make you stronger tomorrow.”
Trevor wishes he could be as awesome as Angie but comforts himself in knowing he is the technical guy behind the Marathon Training Academy podcast and blog. Not too long ago he was a total non-running desk potato. Under Angie’s tutelage he ran his first marathon on October 23, 2011.
“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love to do, there is only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” ~Wayne Dyer

Our Podcasting Journey . . .
“When Angie and I first started podcasting we weren’t sure who would listen, but soon we started to hear from people all over the world. Our show motivated many new runners to increase their health and fitness. Audience members inspired us with their running stories and we endeavored to inspire them with our content. Angie and I sat down at our kitchen table to record our first episode February 16th 2010 (after I finally convinced her to do it). Since then our podcast has been downloaded over 1.7 million times and featured as the top marathon podcast in the iTunes Store. We are grateful to all our listeners and supporters who make our show possible. You guys are awesome!” -Trevor
