You have one shot at running a great marathon! Give your body what it needs so that you can train and run successfully!
It's not worth all of your time and training, all of those long runs, and high mileage weeks if you are not fueling properly and implementing nutritional techniques specific to YOUR body and what it needs to run a MARATHON.
You have one shot to get it right.
Here is why every marathoner needs this course:
Every year, 40% of all marathoners who start a marathon race will experience some level of glycogen depletion, a.k.a. “hitting the wall”. Out of that 40%, two-fifths will be forced to drop out of the marathon all together. All that hard training over the course of days, weeks, and months, are flushed away in a matter of hours. If we did put in the appropriate training, the biggest factor to blame is our nutrition. If we have properly trained, it comes down to the question of, "Are you giving your body enough fuel to power your marathon at the pace that you want to run?”
It's hard to know if you are giving your body enough fuel if you are following generalized nutrition guidelines. You need something more personalized, a plan for YOUR body, and YOUR needs, for YOU to follow. And this is exactly what this kit will do for you.
Through the accompanying workbook, course sections, and the calculators included in this kit, derived from Harvard Researcher Benjamin Rapoport and Exercise Physiologists, William McArdle and Scott Powers, you will calculate and develop your own personalized marathon training and race nutrition plan.
By personalized, I mean that you will get a 9 STEP PLAN that will help you figure out:

Hi! I'm Molly, the voice behind All About Marathon Training. I coach marathoners and half marathoners through personalized plans and self training tools. With 6 marathons under my belt and and B.S. in Kinesiology with a focus in Exercise Science, I'm excited to help you achieve all of your running dreams!
Saying "yes" to EAT LIKE A MARATHONER is the next best thing to hiring a personal nutrition coach but at a fraction of the cost!
Through our calculators and guided information steps you will develop your own personal nutritional plan that is going to have you marathon ready for your big day. By implementing the 9 Step Plan (which takes no time at all to complete once you know your fitness level) you will quickly be able to develop your race refuel plan and your race recovery nutritional plan. By implementing the 2 Step Prep Plan the week before your marathon you will have your own personal carbo-loading plan and your pre-race meal planned for your body and your marathon goals! What exactly does this mean?
It means that come race morning you will KNOW that you have fueled and primed your body for marathon race day success! There will be no second guessing. You will be confident in knowing that you have adequately prepped for the race and that you know how to continue fueling during the race to reach that finish line that you have worked so hard for! You did not wing it and leave it up to chance that you will get there by just eating a "high carbohydrate meal" a couple days before your race and by drinking some Gatorade and maybe a GU gel during the race. Failing to plan is planning to fail but that is not what you settled for!
I would hate for you to spend so many hours out there logging the miles, putting in the running workouts, and checking off those long runs only to have you leave one of the most important marathon training elements, your nutrition, on the table. Choosing to be unintentional with your pre-race week nutrition can be disastrous from the moment you wake up on race morning. It will show in those early miles, self-doubt will easily find it's way in. The worst thing that can go wrong during your marathon is to hit that wall and be forced to either drop out or painfully continue walking or slow jogging on but that can be completely avoided through proper nutrition the week before your race and during the race itself!
