Coach LaToya is no stranger to the podcast!  She is one of our Healthy Runner Coaches who helps many of our athletes crush their half marathon or marathon goals! 


In this deep dive training, Coach LaToya shares her insight into why tapering before a race is so important and how you can properly taper for your marathon or half marathon without getting the taper tantrums!


LaToya answers the following questions in this episode and so much more!:

  • Should you taper before a race?
  • Why is tapering important?
  • Do you lose fitness when tapering?
  • How many weeks before a race should you taper?
  • How do you properly taper for your marathon?
  • How do you properly taper for your half marathon?
  • What should I eat during taper week?
