Matt Fitzgerald is an endurance sports author, coach, and nutritionist. His many books include The Comeback Quotient, 80/20 Running, and The Endurance Diet, How Bad Do You Want It and his latest book, On Pace, Discover How To Run Every Race At Your Real Limit. Matt’s writings have also appeared in numerous magazines, including Outside and Runner’s World, and on popular websites such as podiumrunner.com and nbcnews.com.  He is a cofounder of 80/20 Endurance  and the creator of the Diet Quality Score smartphone app. A lifelong endurance athlete, he speaks frequently at events throughout the United States and internationally. 

We always love talking to Matt. He has so much knowledge, we are always grateful to learn from him and share with you. On this podcast we discuss his latest book, On Pace, Discover How To Run Every Race At Your Real Limit. We talk about all things pacing, including: 

  • The inspiration for the book
  • Three key mental traits
  • Why pacing is so difficult
  • Do GPS devices help us or hurt us
  • Perceived effort
  • The mental side of pacing
  • How pacing applies to ultra-running

This book is a great reference book to have on hand. Grab a copy and enjoy the podcast!

Every runner stops getting faster at some point, but pacing is something that any runner can get better at indefinitely.

The true winner among competitive runners is not the swiftest but the happiest, and the happiest runner is the freest runner, and the freest runner is the runner who has most fully mastered the art of finding his or her limit.
