The None to Run Podcast

For the show notes and the full transcript to this episode head over to:

To join the April 2017 None to Run Challenge:

A cross-country All-American at Stonehill College, Mario has coached both elite and age-group runners and was the men’s marathon coach for Costa Rica at the 2012 Olympics.

Most recently Mario helped start Ekiden, a company that leverages technology to bring a great human coaching experience to more runners. He shares his thoughts on running and other topics that interest him in the morning shakeout, his weekly email newsletter to which I subscribe to and look forward to reading each week.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Mario’s photography hobby and coffee habit.
  • Lessons Mario has learned during his time as a runner and coach that applies to runners of all levels.
  • Some specific running workouts that beginners can do to break up the monotony of slow running.
  • Ways you can recognize when progress is being made, besides running speed.
  • Mario’s non-negotiable aspects of a good running training program.
  • Mario’s favourite strength exercises and a simple routine to elicit athleticism and make you a better runner.
  • The benefits of having a running coach.
  • Mario’s favourite running books.
  • And more!
