Presenting the No Meat Athlete Marathon Roadmap

Finally!  Whew…

Months in the making, the No Meat Athlete Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 26.2 is now available for download.  You can click here to learn more about it.

I’m really excited to let you know I’ve been adding more and more content to this thing.  The ebook is 138 pages long, and includes four hours of MP3 interviews with six incredible and extremely knowledgeable vegan and vegetarian endurance athletes, including Brendan Brazier, Rich Roll, and some pretty amazing others as well.

There’s a training plan, a sample meal plan, recipes… and another 100 pages of who-knows-what!  I’ve worked my butt off putting this whole thing together, and I’m so proud of how it turned out.  Come to think of it, I’ve sort of worked my butt back on, seeing as it has kept me from running for about two weeks. 🙂

Anyway, the rest of this week is sort of the “NMA-reader only” launch.  If you get it before Friday at midnight (Eastern), you’ll get some very special free bonuses, including Fuel Your Run the Tarahumara Way, the e-cookbook I put together with my vegan-baker sister last summer.  It’s also available at a much lower price than it will be after this.

I’m hoping that by doing this, it’ll get out to a lot of you who can help me out with a few nice words about the book that I can add to the sales page for when it’s promoted to readers of other sites.

After Friday, I’ll take the page down for a little while, and bring it back next week while the book is being promoted elsewhere (with a higher price) for the week.  And then after that, the bonuses will go away and the price will go up again.

So, moral of the story… if you’d like to run your first marathon this year and do it on a plant-based diet, and you think the Marathon Roadmap is for you, get it before Friday, so that you’ll get the great price and some sweet bonuses.  Click here to check it out.

And please…let me know what you think!  I’m really confident you’ll be as thrilled with this as I am.

  1. Well done Matt! Must feel good to put such a giant accomplishment behind you! I’m not vegetarian and don’t see myself running 26.2 any time soon, but I know a lot of people who fall into those categories so I’ll be sure to let them know about it!

    Hey Matt,
    I’m not the best at understanding the inner workings of a computer and have never had a ebook. Does this mean that I read the book from my computer when it’s downloaded? Can I print it out and read it that way (I like to read at night before bed or when I do cardio at the gym)? I don’t have an mp3 player but I do have an ipod. Does this still work for the interviews? I want to buy the book this week and get all the early bird perks but I want to make sure it’s easily accessible for me. Thanks and sorry to sem like a computer neanderthal (grunt grunt)

    • Hey Jon, an ebook (except in the Kindle sense) is a pdf file, usually with a cover image and some nice design. Yes you can print it out, and I made sure that the inside pages are mostly white with only minimal design for printer-friendliness.

      And yes, the MP3’s will play on an iPod, no problem.

      Hope that helps; let me know if I can clear anything else up!

  3. Congrats Matt. This is really awesome. Can’t wait to check it out!

  4. Matt, this is a great accomplishment. I am pretty excited to be able to try this method out. I’ve dabbled with raw foods on and off for about a year. And I’m also a wannabe-serious triathlete (as in, I want to be serious about it, but I can never get into the appropriate training mindset). I think this book will be ideal for me.

    Can’t wait to check it out!

    Thanks for writing it.

  5. Really, really great job Matt. This looks awesome. I am not planning to do a marathon soon (just a few 10k’s) – but I’ve posted it to FB.

  6. Congratulations, Matt. Everything looks great. I’m sure the work will have been worth it.

  7. Hi Matt! Just came across your site yesterday. It’s great, I linked it to my facebook so others can do the same 🙂

  8. Bravo, Matt!

    • Robyn, thanks so much for taking the time to do the interview. I realized when I was compiling everything that you were the only female interview! So I’m on the lookout for more to add. 🙂

  9. Congrats, got my copy, review forthcoming! Awesome stuff Matt.

  10. My copy is downloading as I type this! =) This week is a bit crazy (leaving on Thursday for the Myrtle Beach Marathon – whoo-hoo!) but I’ll review the book on my site when I get back. And as always, I’ll wear my NMA shirt around the expo as people love it. Congrats!!

  11. Jeff Krueger says:

    Just bought and am currently downloading. I’ve done 18 marathons, but am ready to take things to a new level. I’ve been using some recipes off the site for a while and love them all. Looking forward to hearing the interviews in particular. Great site.

  12. I’m pretty excited! I got your email this morning, thought about purchasing the Marathon Roadmap – and then my mom called me this evening, telling me to check my email because she wasn’t sure if the download link was sent to me or her – she had purchased it for me as a Valentine’s Day gift! I’m excited to start reading.

  13. Great book Matt! I have my first marathon coming up on May 1st. I’m going to modify my current training plan to incorporate some of your ideas. I’ll be doing a review of your book on my blog soon!

  14. Lauren McHugh says:

    Matt – Great book! Devoured it like a big green smoothie. Six days until I register for my first marathon (Marine Corp baby!) and I just want to thank you for sharing the knowledge and laughs along the way. Your site and the book are coming with me on the journey! Congratulations on all of the good things that your book will bring – much deserved!

  15. Hi Matt,

    I am interested in purchasing your Roadmap but am wondering if the techniques and strategies you recommend will apply to me as a 58 year-old male who has been vegan for 8 years now, been playing racquetball 3 times per week for the last year, and had only started running in June of this year. I am now up to running 3 times per week anywhere between 3 and 5 miles. I really need some help with understanding how I can push myself as a middle-aged male whose body composition and makeup is certainly not as capable as a twenty or thirty something. Will your program be adaptable for someone of my age and physique?
