It was such a treat welcoming back my friend Marcus Brown, aka @themarathonmarcus, for a deep-dive on his sub-3 breakthrough at Dorney Lake! What an INSPIRING journey it’s been following Marcus from 4:55 marathoner to 2:56.
We discussed his last 3 races that were building blocks to achieving his breakthrough at Dorney Lake:
-Manchester, where he ran a 3:05 DESPITE getting sick both the night before and at the finish line.
-Berlin, where he ran a 3:01 off a substandard training cycle.
-New York, where he finished with a 3:00:19 on, unquestionably, the toughest course.
-Marcus' race buildup. Where there any changes in key workouts?
-Lessons learned throughout the process.
-The last night's meal and his pre-race breakfast.
-His fueling strategy.
-The race day blow-by-blow. Marcus takes us through it ALL.
-His mental game, mindset, and mantras.
I'm so thrilled for Marcus and I’m sure you’re all gonna be inspired hearing him take us through it!
