We all dream of running faster or farther than we ever have before. But we can’t truly know that we’re capable until we do it. Or can we?

On today’s show, I’ll reveal the 7 clear signs that say you're finally ready to crush your marathon goal.

You’ll learn:

  • How to take a realistic look at your training
  • How to decode some of your most important workouts, and 
  • We’ll see if your strategy is strong enough to reach your dream goals.

This is exactly what you’ll need to know if you are a first-time marathoner, or if you’re running your hundredth. And I’m also talking to those of you out there who keep trying and trying and just missing that elusive A goal time. Have you finally done enough this time?
