By runners, for runners - Marathon Talk is a weekly podcast dedicated to keeping you on the inside track to successful running. Experienced multi-sport athletes Martin Yelling and Tom Williams discuss interesting and topical issues from the world of marathon running and along with regular guest interviews provide all the inspiration, motivation and knowledge you need to achieve your goals.
Running podcast that helps you unlock your potential to master marathon training and life. Listen as coach Angie Spencer shares her knowledge and experience as both a marathoner and registered nurse to help you run smarter, feel better, and go the distance. Whether you are a new runner or have logged many miles, Marathon Training Academy will propel you to the next level.
The Extra Mile Podcast is a podcast for runners who are training for fall half and full marathons to share their training progress with other runners. Runners training for the Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon in October 2007 will provide regular, short audio updates on the progress of their training from week to week. We hope that this will encourage and inspire fellow runners as we train together through the coming months.
Since 2008, the Two Gomers have been getting off the couch and doing things they never thought they could do. First, they trained for a Half Marathon. Then they went for the full. After that, they tried to run 26.2 in under 5 hours (the Sub-Five Strive). After a fourth season of some major life changes (a new baby for one, a new job for the other), and Season 5 where they went back to the basics, learning to train for a Half Marathon all over again, Season 6 is upon us: Two Gomers Race A Triathlon! Join Steven and Anthony as they continue to challenge themselves, run (swim and bike) ridiculous distances, and go off on about a dozen entertaining tangents per episode. Whether this podcast motivates, entertains, or inspires, we hope you enjoy Two Gomers Run For Their Lives! Happy Running!

After a strange month of long conversations, big decisions, and a detour through A Star Wars Story, the guys are back to what started it all: running. Join the Gomers as they talk about their weeks in review including hills, bricks, dry heaves, long mileage, races…and soreness. And what’s this? Could it be Gomer’s Tips? And say WHAT?! Songs to Run To? The guys are really taking this thing seriously! Don’t worry, though, they are still stuck in the 80s in all the right ways. A favorite on Anthony’s playlist. Also, stick around for some responses to the past month’s episodes and decisions in Listener Feedback. Plus, the Monday Survey: Do you have Low-Carb Meals to share? We want to hear em! Happy Listening, and Happy Running! P.S. Sorry for the technical difficulties in the listerner feedback section! Skip to Chapter around 1:21 if you don’t like it!
One sure way to become ensconced in the running community is to become conversant in its terms. In this episode coach Angie explains the terminally, vocabulary, and slang commonly used by runners. This is part 2 of our words you should know series and we think you’ll love it! More running terminology you should know, Injury and Mishaps RICE= Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation; used to treat certain injuries Stitch= side cramp Runners trots= gastrointestinal (GI) problems on the run resulting in diarrhea Code brown= desperately in need of a place to have a bowel movement; this may or may not end in an unfortunate accident (shart=a fart you should not have trusted) Fitness leak= urine leakage caused by high impact activities; most common in women affecting at least 25% Chaffing= an irritation or rubbing of the skin caused by skin to skin or skin to fabric contact made worse by the presence of moisture and heat Chub rub= thigh chaffing from skin rubbing together Stress fracture (SF ...

The name says it all! As long as the Gomers podcast exists, there will be Star Wars chat. And so the first footage of a non-trilogy Star Wars movie warrants a bonus ep, wouldn’t you say? The guys talk new directions for the franchise, new music…and possibly new running times. And was that Poe? No, but we can’t help reading into everything we see. AND THAT DISH BEING INSTALLED INTO THE DEATH STAR WHAT Nothing about running, it’s just the guys talking, which we thought you’d like. Happy listening!
Kari Gormley is a fellow podcaster and long time listener to MTA. Last year was she able to rase $8,000 for the charity Action for Healthy Kids while training for the Chicago and New York City Marathons. Many runners choose to enter one of the big six marathons (Boston, New York, Chicago, London, Berlin, Tokyo) on a charity bib. In this interview Kari gives fund raising tips for those running a marathon for charity. Get the $$$ without wearing down your friends and family. Running for Charity Most large marathons have a number of charity partners. In recent years, the Boston Marathon field had typically been made up of 27,000 runners—roughly 22,000 qualifiers (approximately 82 percent) and 5,000 exempt runners (18 percent) participating on behalf of a charity or a sponsor.  The NYC Marathon typically fields between 8-9 thousand charity runners each year. Approximately 27% of Chicago’s 37,000 runners are charity participants. The London Marathon currently has the largest charity ...
Martin speaks to three of the London Marathon’s male British contenders for Rio qualification, Boston has an Ethiopian double, Mike Wardian targets all six World Marathon Majors, Training Talk gives you ten top tips for a terrific London Marathon, you guys rock your Marathon Talk kit around the world, Facebook Friday is all about the dos and don’ts of spectator shouting, Unilite bring you the chance to win a super running head torch on this week’s Listener Podium, and Tom’s back in the house.
The guys continue their important conversation about the state of the podcast, their running and racing journeys, and their friendship. Plus, they get into the most difficult topic they’ve ever had on the podcast to date: How to end this season, and whether this will be their last. Don’t be surprised by a bit of emotion – we know you wouldn’t have it any other way. Plus we talk about Cheeseburger Salad. Happy Running!

It’s a Team GB Rio Olympic Games Contenders special! We speak to three top female picks for the big trial race in London. We look at the crazy Barkley Marathon and there’s a new World Record for the marathon on an indoor track. The first marathon in Iran kicks off - without women. There’s news of a very speedy 10 year old. We talk tapering in Training Talk. You rate your run, stand proudly on the podium and Tom tells us all about Little Stoke parkrun.
In a nutshell: Things are about to change. After receiving an “inciting incident” email from a kind but concerned listener, the guys have a flurry of conversations about where the podcast is currently, where it’s going…and if it should end. In these next two episodes, they invite you into that conversation. Join them as they get serious, face reality, wax nostalgic, and make some determinations. Remember this? Don’t worry, there’s plenty of TV talk, Star Wars Bluray chat, and other fun stuff along the way – this is the Gomers, after all! Happy running!
After 42 marathons and ultras I’ve gotten to the point where finishing a marathon is not in doubt. Dare I say that I became a bit overconfident about marathons since they’ve gotten fairly easy for me if I’m not trying to set a PR. The New South Trail Marathon was a good lesson in respecting the distance and the course for me. With this marathon, and as I continue my running journey, I realize more and more that running teaches us about ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally and presents many character building opportunities. Respecting the Distance You may remember back to when you first got started on your running journey and it was agony to run for a solid minute. Then there was the process to build up to running that first mile. The next milestone distance is often the 5k. Maybe you’re currently somewhere in this process right now. I remember being terrified before my first ever race, a 5k. And I remember going into my first marathon with so much trepidation. I couldn’t ...
Martin is back in the house. There’s a little running news, a debutante winner of the Reading half and Kenya is still in trouble. We find out about Running Heroes, you share some pics and Rate Your Run. We speak to the wonderful Olympic athlete Eilish McColgan. You’ve got your kit on!

It’s great to welcome Sean Astin back on the show to talk about what he’s been up to in the last year. In 2015 Sean completed the Dopey Challenge, the Boston Marathon, and the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon which requires a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle, and 26.2 mile run in under 17 hours. Sean is a Hollywood actor, director, family man, marathoner and creator of the #Run3rd. Interview with Sean Astin Sean was invited to participate in last year’s Ironman Triathlon Championships in Kona, Hawaii. It was his first triathlon and he only gave himself 5-6 months of preparation. He finished in 15:30:31! You can see the full video interview and much more inside Academy Membership. The #Run3rd 5k The #Run3rd 5k in Mesa, Arizona, benefits after-school running programs that keep kids healthy. Last year they raised $10,000 – money that supported 9 different schools. The Virtual 5k can be run anywhere and any time between now and April 30th. Sign up for the virtual event and get a cool shirt and me ...
Lummox is an old friend who now runs ultras. He does it in his own way and trains mostly by himself. This is a great interview. I hope you like it. Thanks for listening to the podcast. Music by Garage Band and the U.S. Marine Band.

In this, the 9th Episode of Two Gomers Conquer the Capital, the guys talk about how they are gearing up for the upcoming race (s), and discuss injuries, travel, and drawbridges.

Steve and Martin talk about being 4 weeks out from your big marathon. Molly huddle shares a cuddle on the finish line, you Rate Your Run, stand on the Podium and have fun in your kit around the world.
Running terminology may not be the most fascinating topic at first glance. However, running like any other sport or profession has a language of its own and it is very important to understand the definitions and terms that will be referred to so you can be in the know. This might be the most exhaustive list of running terms on the internet! Running Terms and Lingo Distances 100 meters= shortest common sprint race held outdoors 200 meters= 1/2 lap around a standard track 400 meters= 1/4 mile, one lap around a standard track 800 meters = 1/2 mile, two laps around a standard track 1200 meter = 3/4 mile, three laps around a standard track 1500 meter = .93 mile, metric mile, 3 3/4 laps around track 5k= 3.1 miles; 5,000 meters 10k= 6.2 miles; 10,000 meters 15k= 9.3 miles; 15,000 meters Half Marathon= 13.1 miles; 21.1k Marathon= 26.2 miles; 42.2k Ultra marathon= any distance greater than 26.2 miles but typically referring to a 50k race or beyond 50k= 31.1 miles Tri/triathlon= a race which ...

In this podcast episode I bring you with me through every mile of this year’s New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon. You will hear the sounds of the course, tips, and the chatter in my head that helped me get through the tough later miles. It’s the most unusual race recap we’ve ever put together. Be sure to check out my pictures too! The 2016 New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon The Tips from the Course . . . I brought my digital recorder along and shared a tip each mile (whatever came into my mind at the moment, nothing was premeditated). In the later miles it’s funny to see where my headspace was and what I had to tell myself. It was a warm day and I was definitely feeling the pain during the last six miles. Of course, it didn’t help that I went into this marathon under-trained due to laziness. Don’t start too fast! It’s awkward to talk to your digital recorder while running! Don’t fixate on your bladder. Run the tangents. It takes about 3-5 miles to finally settle into the run Practi ...
Oh, but it’s been a long two months! But the Gomers are back, with all sorts of news, updates, and reports. Anthony is traveling the country, and re-upping in training.

Doesn’t get any better than that. Have a great couple weeks, Happy Running!
In this episode we talk running watches, fitness trackers, and other tech with gadget guru Ray Maker from the D.C. Rainmaker website. Since Angie and I tend to be not-so-geeky when it comes to running tech (I have used a Garmin 305 wrist laptop up until last year) we were excited to bring a bona fide gadget guru on the podcast. Ray’s product review blog gets over a million visitors a month. He really knows his stuff! Interview Questions for Ray Maker Ray Maker was named by Runner’s World as one of the 50 Most Influential People in Running, he’s a tech blogger behind the website D.C. Rainmaker where you can find in-depth reviews of running watches and other gadgets for endurance sports. You will hear us ask Ray the following questions: When did you start running and what led you to do your first marathon? I’ve read that you lost 60 pounds and dropped your marathon time under 3 hours, what did that process look like? Many people have probably been over to your blog- DC Rainmaker to c ...
Mo wins in Glasgow, world records tumble in Stockholm, Martin speaks to British world record holder Susie Chan, Kenya could be in trouble, Yuki has one last chance to qualify for Rio, Facebook Friday asks for your motivational tips, there’s another competition from Fitness Rewards and you guys Rate Your Run and show of your Xempo bling.
The 15th annual Lost Dutchman Marathon was held on Sunday, Feb 14, 2016 (for those runner’s who really love running on Valentine’s Day). It has been voted the Arizona Winter Classic “Best Little Marathon” and gets very positive reviews on Marathon Guide as well. It’s an all volunteer event with proceeds going toward local youth programs. Race Recap: The Lost Dutchman Marathon I flew into Phoenix mid afternoon the day before the race and took a taxi to the house where I was staying. Then I headed out to our MTA meet up dinner at Salernos Pizza. I got to see Ed from HI and Paula from OK again and meet Mary, Donna, Addie, Pete and Monica for the first time. I brought the infamous digital recorder and we enjoyed a nice meal talking all things running. Paula was kind enough to pick up my packet for me since I didn’t make the expo in time which was only held on Saturday and closed at 5pm. They also had the option of getting your packet at Road Runner Sports on Thursday and Friday or get ...

Running injuries that crop up during marathon training are a real bummer! Here’s part two of our Q and A with physical therapy doctor Ben Shatto. In this episode you will hear about injury recurrence, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, ITBS and more. My favorite quote from this episode is, “Injury is never normal”. [Part 2] Running Injuries Q and A Disclaimer: This blog post and podcast are not meant to replace the advice of your doctor/health care provider, or speak to the condition of one particular person but rather give general advice. Questions Featured in this Episode: 1. Is there any risk of damaging yourself if you continue to train hard while having PF (other than the pain progressing)? -Lee The short answer is YES. There is a significant risk. You don’t want to tear the plantar fascia. The surgery is a very long recovery. As the pain worsens, you are likely experiencing more and more micro tearing (which can eventually tear the plantar fascia completely and sideline you for a ...

Running injuries! In this episode we invite Dr. Ben Shatto on the podcast and fire away with injury related questions sent in by Academy members.

photo credit: Elk Studios In this episode we talk with Gretchen Rubin, author of the book Better Than Before -Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives. Angie and I read this book in January to help ourselves get focused on goals and personal growth. It’s a great read and has many applications to marathon training. All of us would like to run, exercise, and eat heathy without even thinking twice. Thus the power of habit is preferred to the strength of willpower. But making new habits is easier for some people than it is for others. Here’s the secret, How to Become Better Than Before We’ve talked about the importance of habits on past podcast episodes so you can understand our excitement when happiness guru Gretchen Rubin came out with a new book last year all about habit formation. A lot has been written on the science of habits but what Gretchen has done, I believe, is find what may be the Rosetta Stone of habit creation. It is the idea of knowing yourself first. There is no one- ...
