Larry G. Maguire, Ultramarathon Athlete & Endurance Coach
Hi, my name is Larry Maguire, ultramarathon runner and endurance coach from Dublin, Ireland. I created The Smart Runner to be a reliable resource for both beginner and advanced marathon runners just like you. It's a place where you can get access to reliable & impartial information in three main areas - Marathon Training, Marathon Nutrition and Marathon Mindset.
I believe these three elements are like three legs on a stool. Where we find balance in all three, we maintain stability and we succeed in reaching our marathon running goals.
My hope is that the information you get here on the site helps you maintain your balance. Check out below what we have for you
We're big on strength, conditioning and flexibility. We believe these elements are an essential part of marathon training so you'll get a lot of content on these topics. We'll also deliver you speed and endurance training to help you reach your goals.
As mentioned above, nutrition is one of the three legs on the marathon stool, and getting it right is key to getting the most out of your body. Every week on the blog we'll be covering essential nutrition info to help your body deliver on marathon day.
Mindset is perhaps the most critical element to develop if you want to achieve success running long distance. The content we create will help you cultivate a strong mind, allowing you maintain focus under pressure mile after mile.
