Angie & Trevor Spencer
After having a second child and moving across the country, Angie Spencer was looking for a way to get back in shape and change her life for the better. She ran her first marathon in 2008 and was plagued by training injuries. Deciding to tough it out, she crossed the finish line in 4 hours 10 minutes. It was both painful and exhilarating.
Determined to find a smarter way to train and share it with the world, Angie began a quest that is now Marathon Training Academy. She has since run 57 marathons (including 4 ultramarathons) injury free with a PR of 3:35:41. She has also qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon. Her goal is to run a marathon in every state and inspire as many people as possible.
Angie received her Bachelor of Science degree from Montana State University and has been a Registered Nurse for 17 years. She is also a USATF Level 1 and RRCA Level 2 certified running coach. She and her husband, Trevor, make their home in Pennsylvania and have three boys, ages 14, 12, and 8. In addition to running, Angie enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, yoga, TRX, being in the mountains, and eating dark chocolate.
Trevor is the technical guy behind the Marathon Training Academy podcast and blog. Not too long ago he was a total non-running desk potato. With Angie’s guidance he ran his first marathon on October 23, 2011. He has since completed 17 marathons, 15 half marathons, and a Spartan Trifecta. His dream is to run all the World Marathon Majors and to finish a marathon in every country in Europe. In addition to running he loves travel, language learning, German beer, reading (non-fiction), and making Angie roll her eyes (with mildly inappropriate jokes).
