Obviously, I have marathon on the brain, so I thought today would be the perfect time to host a giveaway to win a copy of No Meat Athlete’s e-book Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 26.2!!
Matt Frazier is the blogger behind No Meat Athlete. He ran his first marathon in 2002, finishing in 4:52. Seven years later, six months after becoming vegetarian, he qualified for Boston with a time of 3:09:59 at the Wineglass Marathon. In June 2010, Matt ran his first 50-mile ultra-marathon, in 10.5 hours. Pretty amazing, huh?
With first-time marathoners in mind, Matt used his own running experience to write a realistic and readable e-book. Marathon Roadmap covers all of the bases with regard to training and gives you a ”˜roadmap’ for completing 26.2 miles. While it’s a “vegetarian guide,” you don’t need to be a vegetarian to benefit from the information inside.
What I liked most about this book is that it makes running a marathon seem do-able. You don’t need to be a super-athlete to do it! Matt keeps things simple, so you don’t have to worry about all of those extra details that can make running a marathon overwhelming. Matt gives a great overview and explanation of his e-book on his blog, so be sure to check it out. It really has everything you need to run your first marathon!
Here’s your chance to win a copy of Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 26.2, which includes four hours of audio interviews with some amazing vegetarian athletes!
