Fraioli.HeadshotI’m Mario Fraioli, senior editor at Competitor magazine and the author of The Official Rock ‘n’ Roll Guide To Marathon & Half-Marathon Training. I’ve been running for more than half of my 32 years, most of it at a pretty good pace. Since 2004, I’ve coached numerous elite and age-group runners to personal bests, Boston Marathon qualifying times and even the Olympic Games. I grew up in Massachusetts, spent a few years in San Diego and now live in the Bay Area with my wife Christine, our four bikes and dozens of pairs of running shoes.
