If You Eat a Plant-Based Diet
and You Really Want to Run a Marathon,
but You Haven’t Because:
- You’re Worried About Injuries,
- You Don’t Have a Plan You Can Trust, or
- You’re Not Sure You Could Ever Do It
… I Can Relate.
I Went Through the Same Thing, but Now I’m a Boston Marathon Qualifier.
Let Me Show You How to Cross the Finish Line of Your First Marathon in Just 5 Months and with a Smile on Your Face!
So many marathon guides are written by super-intense athletes who expect you to dedicate all your waking hours to becoming a running machine. But reading the Marathon Roadmap is like having an experienced yet realistic running buddy training with you, cheering you on every step of the way.
I actually have a photo from after the marathon where I’m standing upright and people around me are laying in the street and walking hunched over!
My name is Matt Frazier and I’d like to help you run your first marathon injury-free, just like I have already helped thousands of others.
After I attempted my first marathon, 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 marathon. 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 a marathon injury-free, actually enjoy it, and heck…maybe even get pretty good at it.
So I decided I would do whatever it takes to finish a marathon
injury-free and feeling great
Fiercely committed to achieving this goal, I got right to work. But there were plenty of obstacles along the way.
Stymied by injuries, my running was all start and stop. How was I supposed to make any progress when I was constantly sidelined with pain?
I became so frustrated that I visited a physical therapist friend of mine. I told him about my setbacks and my goal of becoming a successful marathoner.
He looked me up and down and said, “Matt, you weren’t built to be a runner. You’re short and your legs don’t have the right shape [I’m slightly bowlegged]. If you want to become really good at something, you should pick another sport.”
That statement hit me like a blow to the gut.
As I walked out of his office, I knew I was going to have to work even harder. I may not have the ideal runner’s body, but I did posses a deep burning desire to reach my goal. A desire that was strong enough to overcome any physical imperfections.
Have you ever felt like you weren’t built to be a runner? You don’t have those long, lean legs and the stride of gazelle?
Listen: I’ve run 16 marathons and in each one I’ve seen people of all shapes and sizes cross the finish line. There are overweight runners, runners with duck-feet, bowlegs, short and stocky legs, and everything in between.
So don’t believe for one second that to run a marathon you need to look like the people you see on the cover of Runner’s World. Hundreds of thousands of everyday people complete marathons each year. Your body type isn’t as important as some people make it seem.
Now, I wish I could tell you I immediately improved my running after that first marathon, but that’d be a lie. I constantly battled injuries: knee pain, shin splints, and sore feet. You name it, I had it at some point.
My training was still all start and stop. I’d cruise through my runs for a couple months and then get hurt and be couch-ridden for weeks.
But I kept at it. I pressed on. And along the way, I discovered techniques that committed marathoners use to build their endurance.
I learned the secrets of making my body durable. I even found a number of widespread myths that were ruining my chances. I stopped following this dangerous advice and things got better.
Slowly, my injuries faded away and my mileage increased: 10-mile runs, 15-mile runs, 20-miles…
And then finally … four years later … after much trial and error …
I proved my friend dead wrong!
Because not only did I complete my second marathon…
I felt awesome afterwards!
Now I’ve come up with a method that will take you far, far less than four years to do what I did. I’ll tell you about it in a sec, but first you have to hear this…
This marathon was a complete 180 from my first. I was super exhausted, of course, but it was a different type of exhaustion compared to my first marathon. That one left me feeling sick as a dog. This one made me hungry for more.
But that’s not even the coolest part of the story…
A few years after that, I went on to qualify for the Boston Marathon! As you probably know, qualifying for Boston is like making it into the World Series. It’s the pinnacle for marathon runners.
That showed my friend.
When I look back on those four years of training, there are so many lessons I learned. But when something works for you personally you need to make sure it works for other people. So I packaged all of my knowledge into a system and then shared it with a group of NMA readers. A system that shortens the training time from years (like it took me) to just 18 to 24 weeks, without sacrificing any safety whatsoever.
So how did it work? Brilliantly.
Today, there are thousands of Marathon Roadmap owners throughout the world. Here are a couple of them:
Thanks Matt for guiding me to my first marathon! The challenging course of Cape Cod couldn’t have been tackled without you. Having only been running for 18 months and a plant based diet for 8 months, your book fit perfectly into my training. From warm ups and stretches to stories of no meat athletes, meal plans, and of course workouts, you have covered it all!
I never thought I could run a marathon and the Roadmap is what did it for me. It was challenging and it worked.
-Tom Giammalvo, 3:48:10 in the Cape Cod Marathon
I will never forget the day I found No Meat Athlete and the Marathon Roadmap! I decided to finally reach for my lifelong goal of running a marathon, and I remember thinking “Wow, someone out there actually wrote a book about exactly what I want to do?? This is meant to be!”
After I downloaded the Marathon Roadmap, I read it cover to cover in one sitting! I took lots of notes, wrote my goals, and followed the nutrition and running plans just like Matt explained. Six months later, I ran a full 26.2 miles!
I still can’t believe I actually did it, or that I actually ENJOYED it! Not only has the Marathon Roadmap been an amazing guide for finishing my marathon healthy and injury-free, but it has been my gateway into a lifestyle of health, fitness, and confidence that I used to think was reserved for a select few. A few years ago, I couldn’t even run one mile … The Marathon Roadmap helped me go the distance, and if it worked for me, it can work for anyone!
-Wendy Fry, Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon finisher
So what exactly gave me this breakthrough in my running?
When I attempted that first marathon, I was absolutely clueless. Only now, years later, do I realize how completely unprepared (and even stupid!) I was to show up to that starting line.
For one, I knew nothing about how to eat properly. My diet was good enough for lifting weights and light jogging, but terrible for running a marathon.
I cleaned up my diet, eventually went vegetarian, and learned how to fuel properly before, during, and after my runs. This made a monumental difference in my performance and recovery.
26.2 miles is a grueling distance, and you need to prepare your body properly for it. During that first marathon I didn’t have the physical toughness to run 26.2 miles.It’s not because I didn’t train. Oh I trained. I put myself through grueling workouts.
No, I wasn’t ready for the marathon because because I didn’t train smart. And I paid for it big time.
Later on, I learned:
- The best warm-ups for runners
- Expert techniques for optimal recovery
- How to gradually build up endurance
- The running gear that makes everything easier
Probably my biggest mistake was that I didn’t have comprehensive training plan. All I had was an free training plan off the internet with weekly mileage breakdowns. A spreadsheet alone, no matter how detailed, isn’t enough to get you through the marathon.
In the years that followed that first marathon, I found out the difference between a training plan and training system. And that’s made all the difference for me, as well as the Marathon Roadmap owners.
But why go through all this?
Was it just to get into better shape? Yeah, that was part of it. I did want to improve my health.
But it was more than that. Running a marathon was important to me. It was a life goal I wanted to achieve – at the very top of my bucket list.
When I ran that first marathon, I hated every minute of it. And I paid for not preparing properly in the painful weeks that followed. That’s not a victory in my mind.
I know what happens when you take on a marathon without a plan. And I’ve seen so many runners try to tackle their first marathon the wrong way.
They do a Google search for “marathon training plan” and find something haphazardly thrown together. It fails them (of course). And a couple months later they come to me for help, riddled with injuries.
I knew I could help runners by teaching them everything I learned…
So I’ve put together a simple solution to help plant-based athletes run their first marathon and finish with a smile on their face. It’s the only program for vegans and vegetarians that tells you absolutely everything you need to know — and only what you need to know — so you prepare for your first marathon the right way.
It’s called The Marathon Roadmap 2.0, and if you read on, you’ll see why it’s the marathon-conquering solution you’ve been looking for.
Introducing The Marathon Roadmap 2.0: A Step-by-Step Guide to Your First Marathon Designed for the Runner who Fuels their Body with Plants
This book takes you deep into everything you will need to know to get it done right – from goal setting, to training to diet/nutrition and all the way through the race, it is an outstanding and very comprehensive primer. Soup to nuts – its all in there. A must read!
-Rich Roll, author of Finding Ultra and one of Men’s Fitness Magazine’s “25 Fittest Guys in the World” in 2009
This is not just a marathon training plan. Anyone can slap together one of those and stick it online.
No, this is a complete marathon training system. A system that took over 6 years to develop. A system that 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 marathon coach, without 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:
- A complete 18-week marathon training plan
- Nutrition guidance
- Video check-ins
- Interviews with experts that will accelerate your progress towards your goals
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.
Your hours are better spent running, not digging through a pile of information to find what you need.
Here’s everything you get as a Marathon Roadmap 2.0 customer:

Weekly Check-in Videos
The biggest risk you face in your marathon training is wandering off-track. It’s easy to do. Eighteen weeks is a long time to stick with anything, let alone an intense running schedule.
That’s why so many people who start training eventually quit.
But you won’t be one of them. Remember how earlier I said this system is more like personal coaching than a training plan? Here’s a perfect example.
Each week for 19 weeks you get a check-in video that tells you exactly what you should be doing that week.
In these videos, I cover topics relevant to your phase of training, including:
- How to prepare for those long runs
- The essential running gear you need
- How to optimize your nutrition for maximum performance and recovery
- How to achieve the proper running form
- Insider secrets to avoid nagging injuries
Instead of each week getting harder and harder, you will actually gain motivation as the weeks roll by.
Instead of dreading that day’s run, you will be counting down the seconds until you can burst out the front door and breeze through your run.
And instead of me handing you a training plan and waving, “Good luck,” I’m there with you every step of the way.
Worksheets, Shopping Lists, and Race-Day Checklists
I’ve compiled a toolkit of resources that you can print off and add to your training plan documents.
You’re going to love these. Here’s what’s included:
- A goal-setting worksheet: 3 steps to truly commit yourself to follow through
- 3 shopping lists: one for each week of the meal plan plus a general list of staples to always have on hand.
- A travel checklist if you’re heading out of town for your marathon
- A race-day checklist of what you’ll need to bring to the race itself
The Experts’ Vault

Not quite ready for a Marathon? I’ve got you covered. MR 2.0 Includes training plans for the absolute beginner
Maybe you still don’t believe me when I tell you that it’s entirely possible to go from wherever you are now to completing a marathon in 18-24 weeks.
Maybe you’re out of shape, hate running, and are think, “Matt, how the heck could I ever run 26.2 miles? I can barely run one mile!”
I feel where you’re coming from. When you’re starting from zero, 26.2 miles seems like a looong ways away. Impossible even.
So here’s my advice: Start small. Most marathoners ran shorter distance races before going for the full 26.2.
Work your way up to a marathon instead of tackling it on right out of the gate.
How do you do that, you ask? Simple. You use these free bonuses that I’m included as part of your Marathon Roadmap 2.0 package
Bonus #1: Getting Started in Running
Running is supposed to be fun. But when you first get started…I admit it…it sucks. Trust me when I tell you that you will get over the hump.
And if you do hate running right now, then this bonus will get you in the running habit and make it enjoyable.
Purchase the Marathon Roadmap 2.0 today, and you also get instant access to this audio seminar that will help you build your running habit and take you from hating running to craving it.
Here’s what the series looks like:
- Session 1: Setting Goals and Thinking Big (33:21)
- Session 2: Getting Started and Your First Training Run (34:30)
- Session 3: Plant-Based Nutrition for Fitness (29:43)
- Session 4: Running Gear — What You Need and What You Don’t (45:55)
Bonus #2: The 5K Training Plan
Once you’re up and running (sorry, couldn’t help it) with your new routine, it’s time to start thinking about a race. Yes, your first race can be kind of scary. But if you follow the “Getting Started with Running” advice you will have nothing to fear.
And the 5K is the perfect race for you at this point. You’ll get a feel for competition without taking on something too daunting.
Bonus #2 is a complete 5K training program. Once you knock out a 5K or two, you’ll be well on your way to crossing the finish line of that first marathon.
Bonus #3: The 10K Training Plan
Can you finish a 5K with ease and are looking for a little more of a challenge?
Take it up a notch and go for a 10K. It will get you used to a longer distance race while keeping things manageable for a newer runner.
Use the 10K training plan as your guide and not only will you finish your 10K, you’ll finish strong and hungry for more.
Bonus #4: The Half Marathon Training Plan
Here’s what separates the serious runners from the weekend joggers: The Half Marathon.
Running a half marathon doesn’t need to be a stepping stone to the full marathon: it’s a major accomplishment in itself.
So you may decide to use it as a stepping stone to the full, or you could take all of the information in the Marathon Roadmap Guidebook (it applies to the half marathon too) and become the king or queen of the half marathon.
Either way, you’ve got everything you need in this package. A complete half marathon training plan is included at no additional cost.
So if you’re not quite ready to commit to the full marathon, but you want to test the waters of distance running, here’s what you do instead:
- Step 1: Follow the “Getting Started in Running” plan to build your foundation.
- Step 2: Choose a shorter race as your first goal: a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon.
- Step 3: Follow the training plans I’ve included for those races – and complete one of them.
- Step 4: Build up your skill and confidence at these shorter distances.
- Step 5: Once you’re consistently finishing these shorter races, decide if you want to shoot for the marathon. If that choice is a “hell yea”, you already have everything you need.
You can see that the Marathon Roadmap is not a one-size-fits approach. You choose where you want to begin based on where you’re at right now.
When you’re ready to “level up”, you head to the more advanced training plans.
So whether you’re a total beginner or you’re a good runner who’s caught the marathon-bug, the Marathon Roadmap 2.0 will work for you.
It’s already helped thousands of runners, and I guarantee you that many of them started off well behind where you are right now.
Here’s How to Get Your Copy of the Marathon Roadmap 2.0
This is a humongous package of goodies. To make sure you fully understand everything you’re getting today, including all the bonuses, here’s what’s included.

Like I said, this is a huge resource of training plans, tips and techniques. And it’ s everything you need to run your first marathon on a plant-based diet.
All of this training material is digital (nothing shipped = no waiting) and is sitting in your members area for immediate access after your purchase.
When you consider this:
- I’ve included everything I’ve learned in 10 years of running marathons and 50+ mile races
- The decades of experience and hours of audio brought to you by the top vegetarian experts and athletes I’ve interviewed
- The weekly check-in video coaching you receive
- How this is the only marathon program designed for plant-based athletes
- The countless hours and thousands of dollars that went into design, video production, writing, hiring outside help.
- How you get not one, but four training plans (for the 5k, 10k, half, and marathon)
You can see how I could easily ask $200 for this package. And it would sell at that price. After all, running a marathon consistently ranks near the top of people’s lifelong bucket lists. For something that important, $200 is a no-brainer.
But you are not going to pay $200. Or even half of that.
No, you’ll get this system for much less. Your investment for the entire Marathon Roadmap 2.0 system is just $67.
Why so low? It’s because of my first marathon. When I think back to that race…and the pain, frustration, and the following years of fumbling around until I finally cracked the code….it makes me want to make this program available to as many people as possible.
Plus, you’re a vegan or vegetarian too. So you get bonus points for that ; )
Ready to get started? If you really want to run your first marathon – the safe way, the strong way, the right way…AND do it while eating a plant-based diet…this is the best decision you can possibly make.

What others are saying about The Marathon Roadmap
Passion and drive aren’t all that’s needed to successfully run your first marathon. You need to have a plan –- a map, if you will –- to get through a run of this distance. And for that, I highly recommend the Marathon Roadmap. It covers all the pitfalls to ensure you won’t make them.
-Brendan Brazier, vegan professional Ironman triathlete, bestselling author of Thrive, formulator of Vega natural sports nutrition line
I learned about the Marathon Roadmap just as I began preparation for my first marathon. The comprehensive guide provided this novice with so many valuable do’s and don’t’s that most simply learn through painful experience. From meal plans to training plans, the Roadmap saved so much time and effort which was used to actually prepare for the race. In the end, I achieved my personal goal running a 3:36 on a very demanding course. No telling what the result would have been without the Marathon Roadmap. Even experienced marathoners will see its value. I know it will be my guide to my next marathon and beyond. Thanks Matt!

I brought your book when I was training for my first marathon — the Paris marathon, which I ran in April this year. I absolutely loved it. I finished in 4:32 (which I was thrilled with!) and really loved the whole thing (even those horrible last 5 km!). Your book was a really wonderful tool for me during the training, and I plan on sharing it with my husband when he trains for his first marathon next year.
I didn’t know exactly what to expect, because first, I really had no interest in running a marathon, and second, I had even less interest in not eating meat. But I couldn’t put the book down. I was fascinated by everything I was reading, and ended up reading the whole thing in 48 hours. The more I read, the more I found myself nodding and thinking “wow, I think I could actually do this.” Never in a million years did I anticipate I’d even be interested in trying a vegetarian diet … now I’m going to do it. I loved the book. The thing I appreciated the most about it is how it lays everything out for you in small, very attainable steps. Like I’ve mentioned, going vegetarian never even crossed my mind, but after reading Marathon Roadmap, I really believe I can do it.
The Marathon Roadmap is an amazing resource! It has a truly effective plan that not only helped me survive my first marathon but also helped me do it well. I ran my marathon in July and not only did I run it without injury but I felt surprisingly strong at the end — so strong that I have already signed up for my next marathon! The Roadmap is an easy-to-follow plan that never is too punishing on your body.

PS – Even if you decide the Marathon Roadmap 2.0 isn’t for you, I sincerely hope you make your marathon happen somehow. The decision can change your life! If you’ve made it this far down the page, it’s obvious that some part of you really wants to be a marathoner — so do something to commit yourself while you’re inspired, whether it’s with my program or not.
