The September WeeViews Gear Giveaway: Nike Pegasus 40.

Nike Pegasus 40 specs...

A bestseller on the Nike website, Nike claims the Pegasus 40 as one of their most versatile trainers that can:

  • Go out for long or casual runs, and...
  • Has enough responsiveness to occasionally serve as a speedwork shoe

👟The most notable updates from Pegasus 39 include:

  • A midfoot band for additional security
  • A redesigned mesh upper for more breathability
  • For the gearheads out there, the Nike Pegasus 40 weighs 288g in a men’s size 10 and has a heel-to-toe drop of 10mm.

Matt started running long distance–specifically marathons–in 2020 when the world was on lockdown during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
He ran the virtual TCS NYC Marathon in 3:59:45. 
🏃‍♂️ “That day humbled me as a runner and how hard a marathon is. It also made me hungry for more,” he explains. 

  • In 2021, Matt came back for more. 
  • He ran the TCS NYC Marathon in 3:11:18–a massive improvement from the first time! 
  • Since then, he has run 3:00:53 and 2:58:45 in the marathon. 

One of Matt’s long term goals is to complete all 6 major marathons. With 2 of them accomplished, he has 4 to go!

🏃‍♂️ Some of Matt’s other PRs include:

  • 1:20:34 half marathon
  • 36:57 10K
  • 17:27 5K

🏃‍♂️When asked about his “why” for running, Matt says:

“I run for the simple fact I LOVE running. It lets me connect with my mind and body unlike any other activity."
"It’s a form of meditation, brings me peace, and allows me to create goals to work towards to achieve.” 

@mattykruns is training to run the Berlin Marathon on September 24th.

The right mix of training to improve running performance

A social media powerhouse and motivator of others, Matt also adds “running coach” to his resume.
His coaching philosophy rides on building consistency and putting in the hard work.
He guarantees his athletes will see improvement IF they show up each and every day. 
On top of teaching runners how to properly build for a race distance, Matt doesn’t neglect the aerobic base:
“I also preach the 80/20 rule which is 80 percent of your running should be easy and 20 percent should be quality sessions: speed workouts, long runs with pacing.” 

🏃‍♂️Matt’s Top Tips for Marathon Running:

  1. Plan. Give yourself enough time to train and hire a coach who can help structure your training.
  2. Fuel. Practice nutrition on your long runs (gels, salt, hydration)
  3. Focus. Live in each mile. Don’t look at the 26 miles, but rather each mile individually.
