Marathon Training for Beginners

By Running with the Crummy Marathoners
Mo and Harrison Crum here! We are new to running, and together, we are documenting our marathon training journey. This podcast is for beginners, by beginners! If you are training for a marathon or half marathon, this is for you! Most people don’t run marathons, and that’s because they don’t think it’s possible! We are here to prove most people wrong. If we can inspire others to start running, we consider this a success! Follow us on Instagram @crummymarathoners and DM us questions—we will answer as many as possible.
