Matt Fitzgerald: Running The Dream – How To Train Like An Elite

by | Jun 1, 2020 | Podcast Episodes

In this episode of Runchatlive, we welcome the return of Matt Fitzgerald, nutritionist, endurance athlete and author of hugely popular books such as ‘Brain Training For Runners’, ‘Run Faster 5k to Marathon’, ’80/20 Running’, ‘Diet Cults’ and the truly incredible ‘Life Is A Marathon’ which we spoke to Matt about in Runchatlive Ep.37.

‘RUNNING THE DREAM’, Matt’s latest book, documents a summer he spent with the Northern Arizona Elite, one of the country’s premier professional running teams, training with national champions and Olympic hopefuls in the running mecca of Flagstaff, Arizona, leading in to the Chicago Marathon. His goal: to beat at the age of 46 a marathon PB he set 9 years earlier!

With Matt’s trademark mix of humour, drama and defiant endurance in the face of adversity, ‘RUNNING THE DREAM’ is an incredible book and a total eye opener for any veteran runner tempted to play the “I’m too old” card, flipping as always from utterly gripping to Cheshire grinning, chapter after chapter.

RCL International Running Conference 2020

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Matt Fitzgerald will be a speaker at this year’s RCL International Running Conference on October 29th & 30th in Brighton, UK. And yes, if COVID-19 means we can’t meet up face-to-face there will be a VIRTUAL conference!

Full details are available on the Eventbrite page: We are thrilled to say the least and sure that the variety of presentations and two 90 minute Q&A sessions with all TEN speakers on stage will be of HUGE value to therapists, running coaches, runners and personal trainers.

There are ticket options for all, early bird discounts, virtual tickets… just get over ther NOW and have a look! And, as mentioned above, if COVID-19 means that a face-to-face event is not possible, there will be a VIRTUAL conference with all ten speakers, question time sessions, for which all tickets purchased will be valid.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
