How a Physical Therapist (and 2:24 Marathoner) Prevents Injuries

Inside information is often a key competitive advantage. When it comes to the stock market, that advantage is so large it’s even illegal!

But when it comes to running, inside information isn’t illegal or even frowned upon. In fact, it’s encouraged!

That’s why I urge you to…

Each opportunity to learn makes you a more formidable opponent. With every juicy tidbit, factoid, theory, and new strategy comes a better understanding of how to structure your training and inch closer to your goals.

These experiences give you a firmer grasp on how to train effectively, prevent injuries, and break through a performance plateau.

Today is a unique opportunity to get some of this “inside information.”

That’s because I recently sat down with a physical therapist who’s also a high-performing runner.

Combining real-world knowledge of how to train, race, and improve with the professional background of a physical therapist, my guest on the podcast today will give you a deep understanding of how to get faster while staying healthy.

  • The training that led Verrelle to a 2:24 marathon
  • How to avoid the common injury mistakes that land runners in his office
