Ever Wonder How the Pros Train for a Marathon? Here's an inside Look with Pro Marathoner Scott Fauble.
Marathons, meditation, and Mexican food. If Scott Fauble’s recent years as a professional runner could be described in a few words, these would surely make the list. In addition to being a prolific blogger and spearheading a burrito movement called “Burrito Mafia”, the Team Roctane athlete has built up quite the resume in just a few years.
From his dominant college days at powerhouse University of Portland to the professional ranks with Hoka ONE ONE Northern Arizona Elite, Fauble has been on a mission to discover his running potential.
Here are some of his recent personal bests and achievements:
- 9th place at 2017 Frankfurt Marathon (2:12:35)

Scott’s next conquest? Marathons. After an impressive top-10 debut in 2:12:35 at the Frankfurt Marathon last October, he has established himself as an elite American marathoner. Scott joined us to share marathon advice, including four of his recent key marathon workouts: Bread & Butter 400 Repeats, The Long Run, Mile Repeats, and Race Simulation. Along with specifics, he drops marathon training tips for runners of all levels on how they can adjust his workouts to their own needs, whether the goal is to qualify for the Olympic trials or simply cross the finish line.
(Note: Scott lives and trains in Flagstaff at 7,000 feet but drives down to Camp Verde at 3,100 feet for some key workouts.)
