#75 The Boston Marathon Course Overview and Strategy

Season #2

Dean and Paula discuss the Boston Marathon course breaking it down mile by mile.  They discuss tips and strategies to help first timers and long timers for this marathon as well as other similar endurance races.  They discuss the downhill sections and the four major hills of the Boston course.  They also discuss nutrition and the location of the gel stations along the course.  They also make recommendations regarding bus loading and getting to the start in Hopkinton.

Some references to the Boston Marathon course are attributed to Brendon O'Leary.

Also in this episode, they discuss beach running and the Pioneer Running Crew marathon through the best running spots in Boston the Saturday before Patriots Day.

RyR is a team of runners and triathletes who receive comprehensive and customized coaching. The team name has dual meanings. The first is based in Hebrews 12:1 in which Christians are instructed to run the race set before us. In this context, RyR stands for Run your Race, with an emphasis on meeting you (the athlete) where you are and coming alongside you to help you reach your goals. The verse emphasizes patience, endurance, and perseverance. These qualities are essential for success as both athletes and coaches.

The second meaning is based on the enduring friendship and marriage between the founding coaches, Dean and Paula Roberts. In this context, RyR stands for Roberts and Roberts. While our primary mission is to help athletes set and reach fitness and performance goals, we understand that this must occur within the context of each athlete's daily life. We strive to form an individual relationship with each athlete and make sure weekly training fits seamlessly into family life and work schedules.
