Dear Friend,

Training for your first marathon?  Let me give you the mental confidence to beat the odds and finish strong on race day!

  • Does the marathon distance (26.2 miles) feel a little intimidating?   
  • Are you worried about injuries and training mistakes?
  • Running on a busy schedule?  
  • Have you been previously injured?

Doubts like this go through every new runner's mind and SHOULD NOT keep you from sticking to your resolution to run a marathon.

In just a moment I'm going to tell you about the powerful system I use for running marathons and staying injury free while having a lot of fun in the process.

I have taught smart training principles to thousands of people just like you -empowering them to run their first marathon or half marathon.

Here is a Testimonial That Came to My Inbox on January 16th 

"Hey Angie and Trevor, Just wanted to let you know, that by following your podcast, and your half marathon training guide, I finished my first half marathon today with an Official Time of 2:01:39.. Thank you so much!"
-Dave from Florida

That's not all, Dave felt so stoked that he immediately signed up for two more half marathons in March!  Why not live life to the fullest?

Now before I tell you about my "officially awesome" training guide let me tell you a little about myself.

My name is Angie Spencer, registered nurse and proud mother of three boys.  I have no natural athletic talent.  I started running to lose weight and blow off stress.

For years I wondered if I had the "right stuff" to run a marathon.  In high school I got up to ten miles but never any further.

After having two kids I was looking for a way to get back in shape  . . . so I started running again.  

The dream of entering a marathon would not go away.  I knew that I MUST TAKE ON THIS CHALENGE to prove to myself that I could do it.

So with very little money to invest, I got my hands on all the free information I could find on the internet.  My training plan called for six days of running per week.

Back then I knew nothing about mental strategies, cross-training, stretching, proper form, hydration, nutrition, gear, long runs, tapering, and recovery.

During my training I was plagued with injuries like shin splits, runner's knee, and lower back pain.  I can still remember my husband taking me to the chiropractor to get my back adjusted!

I am not a careless person.  (In fact, I think I am more cautious than most).  If I had the right information during my training I would have followed it with precision.

I managed to get through that first marathon but it was extremely hard.  

I have since discovered the secrets to successful marathon training (I finished my last marathon in 3 hours and 59 minutes) while staying injury free and having a blast!

I now feel like the master of my health and energy instead of the slave.  Whenever I wish, I can begin training for another marathon anywhere in the world.

It is fun to watch people's reactions when I tell them I run marathons.  Most people say, "I could never do that!"  But they are wrong.

The Truth Is. . .

ANYBODY can run a marathon if they know what they are doing.  Many just lack confidence in their knowledge of "how" to do it.

So I decided to write a book that removes all the guess work.

After investing thousands of hours of research and interviewing top running experts I have created a system that will help a new runner train the right way.

Introducing .... The Marathon Training Academy Official Guide to Running Your First Marathon

Picture of Ebook

100% Pure Empowerment for New Runners 

This is not a book for elite athletes, experts, or ultra runners.  If you want a sophisticated training manual filled with technical jargon than this is not the book for you.  

I am not an Olympian or World Class Runner.  I'm just an everyday mom who loves a new challenge.  My story proves that anyone can run a marathon.  Knowing is half the battle.

My podcast "Marathon Training Academy" has been inspiring thousands of new runners around the world that they DO have what it takes to run a marathon and change their lives.

I Must Confess . . . 


Lance Armstrong, seven time Tour de France winner, said, "Running a marathon is the hardest thing I have ever done".

Don't listen to the websites that claim they can make running a marathon easy.  That claim is a SALES GIMMICK!

To succeed at long distance running you must have discipline, determination, toughness, and a good training plan.

 I can't make your marathon training easy but I can make it efficient.

You see, I know where you are now. Because I've been there. You want to train to be the very best runner you can be.  But you're afraid of the time commitment involved.  You may even be afraid of experiencing the same kind of failure I did for all your hard work.

Whether it's fear of failure, time, fear of injury, fear of hitting that "wall" at mile 20, or fear that you're just not physically fit enough, My Official Guide to Running Your First Marathon will give you all the information you need to train and cross the finish line!

No stone will be left unturned.  All of my best tips, tricks, and secrets are revealed in this easy to use guidebook.  Keep reading to see what you will get in this ebook . . .

Here Is What You Need To Succeed

A Realistic Beginner Training Plan  -most of them I've seen have you running too much too soon.

The Jedi Mind Tricks of Long Distance Runners -believe it or not, we marathoners know mental games to stay focused mile after mile.

Strategies for Staying Free of Injuries like Shin splints, Runner's Knee, IT Band Friction Syndrome, and Plantar Fasciitus -these are nasty injuries! 

Stretches to Help Your Muscles Heal -you would be surprised at how many runners I have talked to that are clueless about what muscles they should be stretching. 

How a Busy Person Can Find Time to Run -I have a whole chapter devoted to this topic.

How to Fuel for Races and Long Runs -when it comes to long runs, you have to be careful what kind of gas you put in the tank.

 How I Stay Motivated to Stick with My Training -If I can do it, you can do it.  Seriously.

Bonus Chapter on Nutrition by Ben Greenfield -Ben will give you 18 critical questions to prevent "dietary insanity".

And Much More . . .


You owe it to yourself to have the best education available when it comes to your training.  I have helped hundreds of people run their first marathon and I can do the same for you.

After a three-year battle with Lyme Disease, I wanted to  raise awareness about the disease by running the NYC marathon. The only problem was that the furthest I had ever run was 10 miles.

In order to succeed I needed information - but not just any information, I needed the BEST information I could find. My online search took me to Marathon Training Academy and I immediately decided this was the site for me.

Angie has developed an informational experience with a large online community of people who are just like me – runners who want to achieve their running goals and need the practical information necessary to do so.

At times it was like having a personal trainer as Angie answers ALL emails she receives.  I believe I would not have had the successful outcome I had at New York City Marathon 2010 without the information, advice, and support Marathon Training Academy gave me.  I can't thank them enough!

I started seriously considering running a marathon about 10 months ago and found the Marathon Training Academy.  When I saw that Angie had written a book I knew I had to get it.

This book gave me the technical information to train but most importantly it gave me the motivation to train even when it was not convenient.

I now consider myself a marathon runner having completed two in the last 4 months.  I qualified for the 2012 Boston Marathon in my last race and plan to do at least one more marathon before Boston.  

Thank you Angie for putting together a great guide for me to follow.  If you want to run a marathon but don't know where to start you need to get "The Official Guide to Running Your First Marathon".  This book will motivate you to change your life and become a marathoner!

Frequently Asked Questions

"Can't I Find the Information for Free Online?"

I love free information.  In fact, I give away tons of information for free on my podcast and blog.  But when it comes to your education you need to be prepared to spend a little money.  Every experienced runner knows that a good pair of running shoes is worth the cost.  How much more should you be sure to equip your mind with the confidence that you are training right.

"What If I Can't Even Run 1 Mile Yet!"

That's fine!  This ebook will show you how to build up your running base before you start marathon training.  I have even helped smokers build their running base.  All the stuff I will give you on nutrition, running form, finding the right shoes, injury prevention, stretching, and mental motivation will be instantly usable no matter what level you are at.

"Does This Book Work for Half-Marathon Training?"  

Of course!  This ebook includes a beginner half-marathon training plan.  I wrote this book to empower those who want to run a full marathon or a half!  My husband Trevor, a beginner, is training for his first half marathon using my plan.

"I Have Already Run a Marathon, Can This Book Still Help Me?"

Yes!  Maybe your last race didn't go as well as it could have, why not be better prepared next time?  You might be missing an important ingredient in your training.

"But I Can't Find the Extra Time for My Training!"

The #1 problem I hear from new runners is lack of time.  That's why I have included an entire chapter on "Finding Time to Run".  Plus, you are going to get time management tips from running experts Ben Greenfield and Tim Borland in the full length interviews I'm including with this ebook.

What is the Cost of Good Training?

To hire a personal trainer to help you prepare for your marathon would cost between $30-$60 dollars an hour. If she met with you 1 hour a week for the duration of your 20 week training that would be $600 to $1,200 dollars!  

You don't need to spend that kind of money to officially kick butt at your first marathon.

Really, good training just depends on knowledge and endurance.  I can give you the knowledge and you have the endurance.   Seriously.

YOU DO HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO RUN A MARATHON.  I believe there is a marathoner within you just waiting to be unleashed.  

When you get to the starting line you will be surprised to find just how many "non-athletic" looking people are there to compete.  Some of them are in their 70s.  Some are overweight.  All of them are on an amazing journey to master their life and health.
