Eat Right for Your Marathon

Are you confused about what to eat?

Do you need to lose a few pounds or are you worried about putting on weight whilst training?

I'm a nutrition coach and I run marathons for fun!



How to go from feeling confused about the best food and diet for your training …


To being confident you know exactly what to eat, when and why to get the most from your training, so you can avoid pilling on the pounds and even lose weight before race-day! 

If you’ve got half an hour or so for a call





👍  Even if you’re carrying a few extra pounds

👍  You're not great in the kitchen

👍  And your diet is overstuffed with ready-meals, takeaways and snacks

This could save you the agony of piling on pounds through training 😩


The heartache of bonking and a bucket load of disappointment from race day crash and burn 😢


I'm going to show you how you can go from Nervous Newbie pigging out on all the pies to confident Master Marathoner

Without giving up cake and doing continuous hill sprints the next day ... which will hurt!

What if some small changes to your diet could solve all your running problems?

Increase your speed, resilience and stamina like

"Whoop, Whoop, I've got this!"

Fitted with your busy life, family’s pickiness, your training commitments and allowed you to still enjoy your life?

Here’s a secret: It can!

No eye rolling (I can see you!)

Does this sound familiar? …


You’re running on CRAZY with little result

You’re dashing around like mad. Working, shopping, stopping the kids squabbling and wrestling with your husband over who’s turn it is to take the bins out … finally getting out the door for a quick jog around the block, before grabbing something, just anything, to eat before collapsing into bed.


You’re unsure how you’re going to cope with the next few months of training

You’ve a marathon training plan stuck to the fridge door and the kids are diligently colouring in blocks as you complete your runs. But you feel like you’re out of control. How the heck are you going to get all this done, keep all plates spinning and have the motivation and energy to run 26.2 miles in a few months?


You know you need to focus and eat right to lose a little weight, but you’re losing motivation

And having the training plan on the fridge door isn’t helping. A little treat of chocolate caramel cheesecake after a late evening 5k jog isn’t going to hurt … is it?

You’re frustrated with the conflicting information you’re getting

Someone at work tells you it’s so easy, he trained on air and suggests an elite athletes newly published ketogenic no carbs diet plan


You go online and your favourite buff celeb is endorsing

“No carbs, coconut oil, avocado, spiralise courgettie, cauliflower rice, juice only, miso infused, gluten free, lactose poison, vitamin nutrient laden green protein shake only diet ... to achieve killer results in 30 days”

Have you tasted that stuff … it’s vial!

You know you should eat more lean meat and veg … But how you gonna do that?

The younger kids refuse anything home cooked, your daughter has just announced she’s going vegan and your husband picks at anything not made from the rear end of a cow.  You’re tearing your hair out cooking separate meals for each of them.

So you resort to Betty’s Brilliant Box of Bonbons for yourself.

You’re scared ... and the clock is ticking

Your race is only weeks away and you’re massively underprepared.

And when you hopped on the scales this morning, after all that running you’re putting on weight!


How the heck can that be happening?!?


Did you raise your hand to any (or all) of the above?


Well ... you're in the right place

Read on my friend ...

I want to introduce you to my secret weapon


Eat Right for Your Marathon



Eat Right for Your Marathon is my step by step nutrition coaching 

for runners training for a marathon


I’ll guide you through the basics of good and healthy nutrition

and how it can be applied to any marathon training programme.

So you can stop spinning plates and start to train effectively,

recover efficiently and enjoy your life NOW!



Discover ALL the strategies I’ve used to go from a depressed, work-a-holic, overweight, wine and cheese guzzling couch potato to a fit, lean, go getting, goal achieving sub 4 hour marathon runner … at aged 50!



And the best part? I’ll give you meal ideas and recipes your family will love you’ll make over and over again even once the marathon is over.

I’m Helen, the Cheesecake Runner

Over the past few years I’ve trained hard, tuned up my lifestyle, 

focused on my running goals, and recently ran my 10th marathon.


But I wasn’t always this fit and focused


Back in 2012 I was overworked, overweight, stressed and burnt out.  

I started running.  Slowly.  From scratch.

I ran my first half spring 2013 and I’ve not looked back.


Finishing VLM15 was emotional ... I was hooked!


I now train and run multiple marathons each year.

 I’m not fast, I’m just focused.  

It hasn’t been easy, I’ve had my up’s and down’s,

but learned so many lessons I’d love to share.


I’ve ignored experienced runners advice and not followed plans

(from fear and nervousness, or thinking I knew better).

I’ve eaten like a pig, piled my plate and paid the price, and

I’ve over worked and over trained and got injured.


I don’t want you to make these same mistakes along

the journey to your marathon day dream!

I know you want to succeed!

👍  You want to be confident you’re eating right to train for

your marathon next spring


👍  You want to know what to eat to have enough energy to train and

not risk running out of energy on long runs


👍  You want to avoid the pitfalls of putting on weight through training and

maybe lose a little weight before race day


👍  You want to recover quickly from your hard runs so you can give each workout your best shot


👍  AND you want to get your long runs and race day right!

Eat Right for Your Marathon - Personalised Get Started Plan

works like this ...


👍  First off I’ll ask you a few questions about your general diet and your lifestyle right now, your running and training plan for your marathon, and ask you to complete a food and fitness diary


👍  Then we’ll schedule our first call for advice, tips and information on how you can get going tuning up your diet for training

👍  We’ll have 3 more calls where I'll give you more diet tips for your training such as tips around what macronutrients to be eating for energy, portion sizes to ensure you've got enough energy for exercise, and what to eat before, during and after  your long runs


👍  AND I’ll answer your most pressing foodie marathon training questions


👍  Finally, you decide whether you would like to continue with Eat Right for Your Marathon - Coaching for Race Day to have weekly or fortnightly coaching to keep you on track with your diet for your training


Sound good?

Eat Right for Your Marathon gives you one to one coaching for advice, tips and information specific to you to help you eat the right foods to support your training for your marathon next spring

😫 You could ask around Facebook for info on what to eat 😫


You can find out almost anything on the Internet and from your ‘new friends in your phone’.  But how do you know that the advice given is right for you?  It’ll cost hours of your time to find out answers to your most pressing questions, when you could be out running, with family or raising funds for your favourite charity.



😫 You could download a free detox or diet you’ve found on-line 😫


It’ll be free.  But is the diet plan right for running or weight-loss whilst marathon training?  Will it give you advice, tips, recipes and meals that fit with your busy life?  And can you be sure you'll be well nourished and have energy to train hard following your plan?


A free detox or diet plan is just that, a plan.  If you’re training for your first marathon you NEED TO KNOW how to eat right to support your running and recovery, rather than just cutting out the crap and calories to iron out your curves.  

Not eating properly through training you'll risk having little energy to run.  That means you won't be able to push and train hard all the time which will have a massive impact on your confidence to complete the race on the day.


OR You could ask a personal trainer or running coach for a marathoner meal plan.  Some personal trainers have some training in nutrition.  But how can you be sure?  Following the wrong advice could leave you 'rungry' and bonking on long runs, which (trust me) isn't fun!



Following my Eat Right for Your Marathon Programme you are not only saving the time and money on questionable solutions, but also getting the ironclad assurance that you'll be confident you know how to eat right to train hard and run your marathon next spring.

🏆🏆🏆  Stated differently with Eat Right for Your Marathon I’m handing you back both time and money to focus on training.  Sound good?  🏆🏆🏆
