Our first ever rabbitPRO, Ryan Miller is taking to the streets of Atlanta with tons of momentum! Setting a new half marathon PR of 63:45 last month and an impressive 2:14 marathon at CIM in 2018, we are so excited to watch Ryan crush it next weekend!
1.) What are you using to fuel up?
I’m fueling up with flexi-tarian diet focused on high quality carbs, proteins, and fats with minimal animal product consumption. I’m using Klean Athlete supplements to support this diet. On race day, I’ll use Maurten!
2.) Favorite part of marathon training?
My favorite part of marathon training is that sense of accomplishment you feel after locking out a big workout you may not have thought was possible to complete before starting. That and eating a waffle before bed every night so I don’t wake up starving.
3.) Least favorite part of marathon training?
My least favorite part of marathon training is just that overall lethargic feeling you have to do anything outside of running and the minimally required activities to stay gainfully employed. Sometimes it nice to stay out late and enjoy a drink with friends!
4.) What is your goal going into the race?
I have tiered goals for the trials. C goal to place higher than I’m seeded (about #50 right now). B Goal is to place in the top 25. A goal is to place in the top 10.
5.) What number marathon is this for you?
This will be Marathon #4 for me. I’ve run Grandma’s, CIM, and San Antonio Rock & Roll.
6.) What has been the hardest part of your build up?
The hardest part of this buildup has been maintaining consistency through some non-injury related setbacks. Missed about two weeks of training in January due to the flu and have been hit with the “I’m laying in bed, but can’t shut my brain down” sleep struggles.
7.) Advice for someone giving marathoning a first try?
My advice for a first time marathoner would be to stay consistent in your training, focus on building your long run duration/intensity, and remember that’s it’s a fairly simple activity... one foot in front of the other!
