    The Masters Running Masterclass with Claire Bartholic

    The Masters Running Masterclass with Claire Bartholic

    Coach Claire Bartholic wasn’t always a runner.  She started running in her mid-30s simply to get in shape for her high school reunion. She caught the running bug and finished her first marathon at age 38 in a respectable 4:02 and was immediately hooked.
     
    With dedicated coaching and training, she successfully lowered her marathon PR to 2:58, remarkably without injury, and entirely plant-based.
     
    Today, we talk about all things masters running including the common mistakes, misconceptions Claire often sees working with masters athletes.
     
    We also answer all your patron questions including ways to best prepare in your younger years, how to adjust your goals, how to increase mileage safely and how to recovery from long runs.

Nip those aches/niggles/injuries in the bud!

I’m still new to this podcast but it has already helped me address my Achilles issues and nip some ITB irritation in the bud. It is so incredibly clear and informative. I’m looking forward to listening more and learning to train and run smarter!

Learning so much

It was when I found myself anxiously awaiting Part 2 of the Patrick McGilvray interview that it clicked with me how much I’ve grown to love this podcast. There has been such a broad range of useful and informative interviews without ever being too dense. Just a great and enjoyable podcast all around.

hands down the best running podcast

as a serious, amateur ultrarunner, who has gone through 8 weeks of physical therapy for IT band syndrome, I appreciate all of the injury prevention knowledge, along with all of the other running wisdom in this podcast. it’s thoughtful, grade A information for a runner of any level. I’ve suggested this one to all of my running buddies.
