Train Right: Exclusive Tips from Runner's World Chief Running Officer Bart Yasso
The 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna® is only a few months away and we know many of you have been training and are eagerly awaiting race day in January. Preparing for a marathon takes a lot of time and determination and may seem a bit daunting for those new to the marathon distance. Rest assured, Bart Yasso, Chief Running Officer at Runner's World magazine, has teamed up with runDisney through the Runner's World Challenge and is here to help.
We welcomed Bart on October 1 at Track Shack in Orlando, Florida to speak with a group of local runners about his experience as a runner and stories from his book, My Life on the Run. Bart ended with a Q/A session, answering questions you submitted to us through Facebook and Twitter.
In this first video of a series of four, Bart answers question about how to fuel for a night race, general training tips and his recommendation about donating blood while training.
If you'd like to receive more tips from Bart, join us on Facebook where we will share the remaining three videos over the next couple weeks. In the meantime, happy training!
