A Step by Step System To Help Marathoners Conquer the Wall!

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go

90% of marathoners fail to achieve their running goals because they don't have a race day nutrition plan.

Want to run a faster marathon?

Maybe you are a beginner who doesn’t know where to start or a veteran marathoner that isn’t getting the race results you expect.2014-mayo

I get it, I’ve been there. For many marathoners optimal nutrition, not running more, is the answer to faster finishing times.

My name is JJ Mayo. I’m a PhD level exercise physiologist, registered dietitian, university professor, and the creator of the Master Marathon Nutrition.

This marathon nutrition program will teach you how to run the fastest marathon of your life….and enjoy it!

Master Marathon Nutrition takes the guesswork out of eating for peak marathon performance. Specifically, this program will help you achieve an optimal race weight and develop a step by step hydration and fueling plan that will have you running faster in no time.

So what happens if you decide not to take nutrition seriously prior to running 26.2 miles?

Let’s be honest…26.2 miles is a looonnnngg way. Without a nutrition plan you will continue to struggle to finish most of your races.

How do I know? That was me years ago summoning all my strength to get across the line. Is just finishing good enough for you? My guess is it’s not… it wasn’t for me.

Without a nutrition strategy your marathon times will be mediocre at best. In some of your races you will inevitably ‘hit the wall’ and beside your name in the race results it will read DNF. DNF are three letters no runner ever wants to see ‘DID NOT FINISH.’

Also, think about the time and effort (3-6 months typically) you spent training and all the money you’ve invested in race entry fees and travel. Is it really worth risking all of this because you haven’t developed a proven nutrition plan?

Do you want to spend the next 10 years of your life wondering how fast you could have run?

If you’re an overachiever (and I’d bet you are) my guess is that you won’t be satisfied with underperforming or failure, especially in your most important (A) races.

Do you really want to look back at old finish line photos disappointed at the time that’s displayed on the race clock?

Without a plan you also run the embarrassing risk of being DFL…DEAD F****** LAST!

But you don’t have to experience this!

What would it feel like to cross the finish line of your next race with a smile on your face and a huge sense of accomplishment?

Starting your marathon with a proven plan instills confidence and allows you to maximize your full potential. A nutrition plan will get you to the starting line of your most important races in the best shape of your life.

How amazing would this be?

Imagine passing countless people in those last few miles because you knew exactly what to eat before and during your race.  A strong marathon finish would feel amazing wouldn’t it?

The Master Marathon Nutrition program will teach you to conquer the wall, not fear it!


Here’s my storyfirst-marathon

It took me a very long time to realize how important nutrition is to fueling high level performance. In my very first marathon (that’s me on the left), I finished but it wasn’t pretty as I struggled to complete the distance.

Despite my poor finishes, my love for running continued to grow. I participated in more marathons over the next several years but became frustrated as I was finishing in the middle of the pack.

You see I wasn’t born to be a runner. In fact I’d probably be a better bodybuilder than a marathoner. Can you relate?

Like many runners, I set a goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Lofty goal, huh?

I thought this would be the spark I needed and decided the answer was to run more. My marathon times improved a bit but I still wasn’t able to qualify for Boston.

In 2003, I completed the famed Walt Disney World marathon but came up 2 minutes short of the time needed to make Boston a reality.

I then put my marathon goals on hold as I started doing triathlons and eventually progressed to the Ironman distance (2.4 mi swim, 112 mi bike, 26.2 mi run). At this point, I became obsessed with nutrition because I knew there was no way to finish 140.6 miles without a nutrition plan.imfinish2

It was a decision I have never regretted.

I went on to complete 9 Ironman triathons with my best time of 10 hours and 37 minutes.

I’d done all the training I could but realized that nutrition was the missing piece I needed to perform well.

I knew at this point I had ‘cracked the code’ to better race performances. Duh, why didn’t I think of this sooner?

Running more does not work for mere mortals (this probably includes you). Most of us can’t run 60-80 miles per week without injury or burnout.

However, eating smart and fueling well during your races will ultimately be the difference in your performance.

In 2013, I did qualify for the Boston Marathon, 20 years after my first marathon attempt at the age of 45 (in a time of 3 hours and 22 minutes).bq-race

I thought running more was the answer…I was wrong!

It wasn’t until I created a race day fueling plan and improved my diet that my goals became a reality.

Because of my educational background, and practical experience, I’ve started coaching others to use nutrition as their secret weapon too!

Can you guarantee that the course will help me run faster?

OK, so everyone’s situation is a little bit different but having a plan will help you run faster. Of course, I can’t guarantee you’ll run 30 minutes faster (or some dudes with suits would probably show up to my door and we would have a problem), but I can give you the EXACT blueprint to run faster and all the nutrition strategies and step-by-step hand-holding.

Nothing I teach in this course is theory. I’ve taken the science around marathon nutrition and made it practical for the age-group marathoner (just like you).

Fact (look it up): One of the top marathoners in history Haile Gebrselassie was really, really fast. Here’s the thing…he was only drinking water on the course during his marathons. Then he worked with a sports nutritionist to develop a nutrition plan…BOOM…guess what happened next? He ran 3 minutes faster and set a world record in 2008!

If an elite marathoner can run 3 minutes faster, think what having a race-day nutrition plan could do for you!

The secret sauce is that I’ve put together a system for you to go at it step-by-step. Nothing is left out, that I can assure you.

If I have a question about the program, who should I ask?

You can send an email to me at – we will be happy to answer all of your questions.

Each module is on average about 15-30-mins-ish + you will have bonus videos, etc.

How long do I get access for?

Forever! And you get unlimited updates (the course is always 100% up to date and if anything ever changes I’m in there to update it…I’ll never leave you hangin’). Here’s the honest truth…because there is SO much great content in the future we may decide to increase the price or add a yearly fee. So, if you want in now’s the time.

What if I buy and want a refund? What’s the policy?

Here is the deal on refunds. I pride myself on high-quality programs that actually work…if you stick to the system. Meaning, if you do what I teach you, good things happen. If you don’t do it, nothing good happens. Shocking, right?.

If within 14 days, if you are unhappy for whatever reason just email me and you will receive a full refund.

Do I get access to the material right away or do I have to wait?

Yes, you get access to everything right away. When you sign-up you will create a login and password that grants immediate access. You can attack the material at any pace you want. 😉

Many people think I’m nuts for giving full access but I know what a huge impact this material can have on your marathon performance.

I run half-marathons, is the program for me?

Absolutely! The same principles whether you are running 13.1 or 26.2 miles.  Its still a long way and will require you to fuel properly on race-day.
