You can run a marathon.


I want to tell you a story...

It was 1998, I was overweight, out of shape and had a job that took up almost all of my time.

I also didn't own a single pair of running shorts and hadn't owned a pair of running shoes for more than a decade. I also didn't know the first thing about running, training or how to get ready for a marathon.

But less than one year later, everything was different. I had lost more than thirty pounds, had more energy than I knew was possible, actually looked forward to working out every day and felt like a kid again.

Best of all...

I completed the New York City Marathon.

I did it and you can too!


Since I ran my first marathon, its almost like I am a brand new person. I'm the same me, in many ways, just better.

I obviously look better – my friends, my family, and especially my spouse – all have commented! I am also more confident at work and at play!

I have become such a strong believer in the life changing influence of completing a marathon that I have helped hundreds of marathoners avoid the mistakes I made and complete their first marathons.

Now, I want to share my marathon training program with you. My book, The Marathon Method Essential Guide to Training for Your First Marathon provides everything you need to know to make your marathon dream come true.

Even if you are out of shape and don't know the first thing about the marathon (just like I was when I started), this book will inspire you and help you every step of the way. I guarantee it.

If I can do it – you can too.

This is a comprehensive program that will provide you with everything you need to get started. Right now!

What others are saying about the Essential Guide to Training for Your First Marathon or Half-Marathon.


Last week, after reading your book, I finished my first marathon. Not only do I feel great physically, but I feel that, empowered by your great advice, I am ready to take on the other goals I've set for myself.

Thank you for this amazing program! I've read other marathon books and have purchased other training programs and yours is by far the most comprehensive and easiest to follow.


Best wishes,

Steve A., Marathoner

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for your great program.

Next week I will run my first marathon. While I am nervous and excited, I know exactly what to expect. Everything you suggested in your training has been right on.

I feel strong, I've lost more than thirty pounds and feel like I can take on the world. Thanks for everything!

And another...


I just returned home from finishing my first marathon and wanted to thank you for your marathon program.

I decided long ago that I wanted to run a marathon. But as a busy mother of three and a wife, I felt I simply didn't have the time. I was also carrying around more than a few extra pounds.

After reading your own story, I was inspired. I decided right then and there that I was going to finish a marathon.

Not only am I over thirty pounds lighter, but for the first time that I can remember, I am actually in charge of my life. I never thought that I would really run a marathon, but I did it and I feel GREAT.

Thank you so much for your words of inspiration, your frank discussion about what to expect along the way and for empowering me.
