It’s Officially Spring … Is This the Year You Run Your Marathon or Half?

This Wednesday was March 20th, marking the first day of spring … which means if this is your year to run a marathon or half marathon, then it’s time to get serious.

Training programs are generally 12 weeks for a half marathon; 18 weeks for a full. And you might want to plan for a few weeks of base-building mileage before you start.

And that — 12 to 18 weeks for a half, 18 to 24 for full — means you could be wearing that finisher’s medal around your neck by the end of summer or beginning of fall … but only if you get started now.

There’s nothing like running your first marathon or half …

… but doing either requires the foresight to give yourself the time you need, by starting early.

(You know, instead of realizing your town’s race is in 3 weeks, and then thinking, “Next year!”)

To celebrate the start of spring — and to give you a little nudge to actually start — I’m running a quick sale on both the No Meat Athlete Marathon Roadmap and Half Marathon Roadmap.

Right now, both entirely downloadable programs are available for 35% off the normal price — but just through Monday, March 25th. 

The Roadmaps offer complete training programs for your first marathon or half, along with 100+ pages of information (including a goal-setting section), plant-based nutrition guidelines, and recipes fit for the training you’ll be doing — along with 6 audio interviews with elite vegan and vegetarian athletes, like Brendan Brazier and Rich Roll, to give you more insight and inspiration (not to mention something to listen to while you run!).

Click here to learn more about either program and decide if a Roadmap is right for you — and even if it’s not, I hope you’ll take advantage of the hope that this season brings to find a program that is!

Spring has arrived, and there’s no better time than today to get started.

Have a great weekend!
