Ali on the Run Show Episode 177: You Can Run a Marathon Q&A with Greg McMillan & Dr. Cathy Yeckel

“You can race as many 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons as you’d like, but that suffering that’s at the end of the marathon is a totally different experience.” —Greg McMillan

On the final episode in the You Can Run a Marathon series, experts Greg McMillan and Dr. Cathy Yeckel are on hand to answer dozens of listener questions about training, race day, nutrition, and more. Greg McMillan is the founder of McMillan Running, where he is also the head coach, exercise physiologist, and 2:31 marathoner. Dr. Yeckel, also a multiple-time marathoner, is a human metabolism researcher and assistance clinical professor at the Yale School of Public Health.

  1. I loved this episode. I am am a slower runner and particularly appreciated hearing Greg’s answers where he provided multiple responses based on finishing time. Hearing advice tailored to back of the pack runners was really refreshing – thank you!

  2. That had to be the absolute best and most i formative episode ever! There has to be a part two of that!!!
