Interview with Ryan Hall -2:04:58 Marathoner, Record Holder and Olympian

We’ve been long time fans of Ryan Hall and always hoped to have him on the podcast.

Ryan is a former professional runner, 2x Olympian, American record holder in the half marathon, and the only American who has run a sub 2:05 marathon. These days he runs to raise money for great causes.

In this conversation you will hear how Ryan manages pain in the marathon and how he reframes the word “hard”. Plus, you’ll hear the story of how, at 13 years old, he had faith that one day he would run with the best in the world and use his running to help others.

Lot’s of great stories and tips in this interview! Continue Reading →

First Marathon Done!

Here at MTA our mission is to help you conquer the marathon and change your life. The first step is believing that you have what it takes. Then you commit to train.

Huge congrats to Academy member Christie Youngblood for taking on the challenge to train for a marathon and finishing strong at the Honolulu Marathon! She dealt with 16 miles worth of rain but still remained positive.

My first marathon is done! I finished in 4:47:38 and beat my goal of 5 hours. It rained for the first 16 miles, but at mile 20 I saw the most beautiful rainbow! Angie & Trevor thank you for the amazing podcast and all of the advice. I found the magic in the misery and I am more proud of myself than I have ever been. I don’t think I am even close to being done and I cannot wait to see what is next!” #Ihavewhatittakes

What I love is that she ’embraced the suck’ of the finial miles and finished with a smile on her face . . . ready to do it again!

Listen to the joy in her words, we can’t say it better than this, Continue Reading →
