Whether you’re a soft beginner or a seasoned athlete, Marathon Training Academy is the club you want to join if you’re at all interested in upping your running game. The podcast, going strong five years after its inception, is pure motivation and empowerment, hosted by two down-to-earth runners, Trevor and Angie, who exude energy and back it up with a strong knowledge base. They talk tips and advice from experts, profile successful marathoners, re-cap almost every big seasonal race from around the world, and discuss health and how to optimize it, all with one simple goal: Helping you run and live your best. Some recent topics included how to tackle training at elevation, how to pace yourself during a marathon, what slow runners should know, the most useful technology and products for long-distance treks, and how to cultivate mental toughness, from the mouths of the most thick-skinned ultramarathoners themselves. It’s a solid podcast to listen to while running, but you’ll find Trevor and Angie’s take on things — like the benefits of risk-taking and resilience — spill into your everyday life.
Best Episode: Their interview with David Clark, who went from a self-described obese alcoholic to an ultramarathoner.
