Here's a Roadmap for exactly how to fuel, train, and stay motivated & injury-free through all 13.1 miles.
Let's face it: there's a reason not many people will ever run a half marathon. 

Actually, there are three big ones:

  • There's the training itself—ramping up to double-digit miles for the first time, without suffering a race-ending injury.
  • There's the nutrition—both during and between runs—and making sure your plant-based diet gives you everything you need to perform and recover. 
  • There's the struggle to stay motivated through mid-week and weekend long runs, two months into your training program, after the initial excitement has worn off.

And that's all before race day! What about everything that actually goes down during a 13.1 mile run? 

It's no wonder most people will never run a half marathon. Most people will never even get past the, "Oh that sounds like a fun!" and actually lace up their shoes to start training. 

But you don't have to be most people. You can be one of the few who actually commit to running a half marathon and follow through. 

And—believe it or not—you can do with your busy schedule, without getting injured, and on a plant-based diet. 

How do I know? Let me tell you a quick story.
I'm Matt Frazier, a dad, a vegan runner, and the founder of No Meat Athlete.

On paper, if you look at my 100-mile ultramarathon finish and Boston Qualifying 3:09:59 marathon PR, it might look like running comes naturally to me.

Let me just say that my running journey has been anything but pretty.

For some silly reason, I jumped and went straight for a marathon. And after I attempted that first race, I felt worse than I ever had in my entire life. In fact, I ran that marathon (the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon) with two good buddies, and the race beat all three of us to a pulp. I was injured for months.

We were completely unprepared for the race, and instead of it being a fun, memorable experience, it was a day of misery I’d like to erase from my brain.

As I lay in bed that night, I promised myself that nightmare would never repeat itself. I wanted to run injury-free, actually enjoy it, and heck… maybe even get pretty good at it.

So I decided I'd do whatever it takes to learn to run injury-free and feeling great. 

I fiercely committed to achieving that goal, and got right to work—reading any training advice I could get my hands on, and implementing that advice in races from 5Ks to half marathons and marathons.

There were ups (races that were actually fun!) and downs (more injuries and setbacks), but through it all I learned a lot about running.

And even more about myself.

“I was never a runner … every time I tried it, something would just go wrong.”

I was never a “runner” but always wanted to be one. I discovered your site and was so inspired by you and all of the other runners and just wanted to one day be able to say I could run a half. I did a few 5K’s and a 10K and it was such an amazing feeling that I knew I HAD to go for a half.

So I ordered the Half Marathon Roadmap, started training, and 4 months later, I am a No Meat Athlete half marathoner—I just finished my first half marathon at Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas! I could not have done it without the Roadmap and all of your advice in it. I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. I couldn’t have done it without you, your site, and your advice.


This is not just a half marathon training plan. Anyone can slap together one of those and stick it online.

No, this is a complete half marathon training system. A system that took years to develop, and covers all the gaps, inaccuracies, and pitfalls that plague so much of the marathon advice out there.

It’s the closest thing you can get to a personal running coach, for a fraction of the cost.

Think about the way a coach would train you.

Would he scribble a training plan on a piece of paper, hand it to you, and wave “Good luck!” as he walks away?

Of course not! And I won’t either. Instead, this marathon training system gives you:

  • Two complete 12-week half marathon training plans for you to choose from, both designed first and foremost to prevent injury
  • Nutrition advice for fueling the distance and recovering from training runs, all on a plant-based diet
  • Goal-setting practices to keep your motivation high
  • Injury prevention techniques to help you stay strong and recover fully
  • A 7-day plant-based meal plan
  • A walk-through of race day, so you'll know exactly what to expect and avoid beginner pitfalls

The best part? It’s an easy-to-follow system. All of the lessons are broken down into step-by-step directions so you know exactly what to do each day during your training. You’ll never be overwhelmed as you go through this system.

Because after all, your hours are better spent running, not digging through a pile of information to find what you need.

Here’s everything you get with the Half Marathon Roadmap:
The Roadmap Guide
These four overview sections will teach you everything you need to know to get the most out of your training and nutrition, when it comes to half marathon training.

Part 1: The mental game — setting your goal, choosing the right race, and a simple trick that virtually guarantees you’ll stay committed.

Part 2: Smart training — how to properly build up the mileage and the fitness you’ll need to feel confident at the start line, while minimizing the chances of an injury.

Part 3: The plant-based half marathon training diet — the foods you should eat to ensure that your plant-based diet is an advantage (with special emphasis on what to eat before, during, and after your workouts).

Part 4: Conquering the race itself — every last detail you need to know about what you should be doing in the crucial days leading up to the half marathon, including a comprehensive race walkthrough, so that you’ll know what to expect at every mile.

13.1 Mile Training Plans

The Roadmap comes with two 12-week training plan options so you can decide which is best for you based on your particular goals and fitness level.

1. The “To-Finish” Plan, designed to help you get across the finish line while minimizing the chance of injury.

2. The “Fitness” Plan, with five types of running workouts that train different systems to ensure all-around fitness, to help you fit your goal of a certain finish time.

Both plans include specific instructions for every workout, so there’s no confusion about what to do on what day, and built-in recovery days to prevent injuries by giving your muscles time to rebuild.

Oh, and if you're not ready to start training just yet, there's even an optional 6-week base-building plan to help you safely build your weekly mileage before you start.

7-Day Plant-Based Meal Plan with Recipes
Because how you fuel your body is a big part of running, I've included a 7-day meal plan showing you exactly what to eat, or to use as a framework for planning your own favorite meals.

Included with the meal plan are nine easy plant-based recipes fit for half marathon training, so you won’t have to spend time searching for recipes that might not be what you need.

No calorie counting—you can eat as much as is comfortable of these filling, whole-food meals.

Worksheets and Race Checklists 
Printer-friendly sheets you can print off to fill out, bring to the store, or travel with to your race:

- A goal-setting worksheet, with three steps to truly commit yourself to follow through.

- A checklist of what to pack if you’re traveling to race (trust me, you don’t want to forget any of these things!).

- A checklist of what you’ll need to bring to the race itself or give to your spectators (so that you'll have exactly what you need, when you need it).

Real talk: This program isn't for everyone. 

If you've run multiple half marathons or marathons, the Roadmap is probably too beginner-focused for your needs. 

Or if you're not ready to put in the work and commit to training for a goal race, this program definitely isn't for you either. 

Training for and running 13.1 miles takes commitment and hard work, and even though I'd like to think the Half Marathon Roadmap makes it as easy and straightforward as possible, there's no magic wand I could wave that prevents you from having to earn that finisher's medal. 

But if you're eager to chase down a half marathon goal, or if you're feeling ready to start building in distance and see how far it takes you, then have at it! 


If you're a long-time reader of No Meat Athlete,  you may have heard of the $67 Marathon Roadmap, one of our flagship programs that has helped hundreds of runners complete a marathon.

And you may even remember that we also offered a Half Marathon Roadmap several years ago. That one cost $27 at the time.

What we've done here is take that old version and give it a complete overhaul—updating the information and techniques, sharing new recipes, and making it easier to use and digest.

Which is why when we make it public next week, this program will be sold for $27 (a total steal, if you ask me).

But here's the deal... Since you're already a No Meat Athlete reader, we want to share this new and improved program for not just the new price, but more than 50% off the OLD price. So for the next few days, we've made the entire Roadmap (guide, training plans, meal plan, and more) just $12. 

Like I said though, this price isn't for everyone and it's not forever. Next week the price jumps to $27, where it'll stay.

And of course, there's no risk for you, thanks to our 100% results guarantee: if you’re not totally, completely thrilled with your progress within a few weeks of using this program (technically, you've got a full month), just shoot me an email, and I'll send you a 100% refund. No weirdness, no questions asked—if you think I don't deliver, then it's on me.

That means you have no excuse—no excuse not to try the Half Marathon Roadmap, and no excuse not to commit yourself to running the half marathon you've been wanting.

Q: Why $12?

A: If you’re thinking “$12 is cheap…what’s the catch?” then here are three reasons that should put your mind at ease:

1. I wanted to make it same price as a casual dinner. Or a few fancy Starbucks drinks. And less than a day pass to a gym or health club. So that in terms of price, it's a ridiculous comparison and a no-brainer. I didn't want the choice to be about the money, but instead about the commitment.

2. At the same time, I don't want it to be free. Why? Because I know when I download free stuff, I don't commit to using it. It goes in a folder on my desktop, and I never come back to it. But when I pay even a tiny amount, then I'm committed.

3. Finally, I believe that if No Meat Athlete can help you run your first half marathon, you'll be so excited and feel so amazing that eventually, you'll want to keep learning from us and become a fan for life.

But that’s it.

No fine print, no hidden trials, no tricks. Just the information you need and the results you want.
Q: Is there a guarantee?

A: You know it! We want you to love this, and to USE this.

Give it a try for a few weeks. If you can't already see results and don't feel you're well on your way to getting into the best shape of your entire life, just let me know within 30 days ([email protected]), and I'll put that $12 right back in your bank account, no questions asked. (I will, however, require that you use it to buy a Chipotle burrito, Starbucks drink, or a day pass at the local gym. No, not really.)

Q: How long will it take to access this plan? 

A: As soon as you complete your purchase, your login info will be sent to the email address you provide. Once you login, you'll see links to all the resources in the program and get started right away.

Finisher, 2012 Providence Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon
“The biggest change I’ve noticed is this confidence I have now, that if I train hard enough, and smart enough, I can achieve any goal.”

I can’t thank you enough for writing the Half Marathon Roadmap. I’ve learned so much, it helped calm my nerves and to be perfectly prepared the morning of the race …

I’m addicted to my morning smoothies and even my husband is a fan of giant salads for lunch now. I’ve also dropped 14 pounds since last year, which is great. The biggest change I’ve noticed, is this confidence I have now, that if I train hard enough, and smart enough, I can achieve any goal. About 2 weeks before the big race my mother in law asked me how did I know I could run 13 miles if I never have before, and inside I just knew I could, and I said, “I’m just going to do it, there’s not much thinking about it, I’m not going to be the fastest, but I’ll finish.” I love my running life, and I can’t wait to call myself a MARATHONER! Runner for life right here!
