101 Marathon Training Tips Author Intro

I'm Heidi Splete. My ongoing goal is to educate, encourage, and entertain runners and potential runners. For more of my running, health, and fitness tips, visit

I have run a range of distances from 5K to 50K, and the marathon is my favorite. If you are training for a marathon, or know someone who wants to, check out my book, 101 marathon tips.

The 26.2-mile distance is a test of endurance, consistency, and mental toughness rather than speed. Whether you are training for your first marathon or your fiftieth, I hope this book provides unique insight and inspiration that you can use and adapt during your marathon training and your running in general.

Here's a bit more about me:

Heidi Splete is a seasoned marathon runner and a health, fitness, and medical writer. She started running on the cross-country and track teams in junior high school, and continued to compete in both sports throughout high school and college. She ran her first marathon in 1992 and got hooked on the 26.2-mile distance. Her running resume includes several big-city marathons, including the Boston Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon, New York City Marathon, and Honolulu Marathon, as well as the Harrisburg Marathon (PA), Frederick Marathon (MD), and Green Mountain Marathon (VT).

She lives in

Washington, D.C., with her husband, David Johnstone, and she is always looking forward to her next marathon.
