About Marathon Matt

Running Background

Matt Forsman has been a passionate runner for over fifteen years. After a successful high school running career, Matt continued to run recreationally during college.

After graduating from college, Matt conquered his first marathon in Anchorage, Alaska.

Inspired by his experience in Anchorage, Matt continued to train for marathons posting a PR in every subsequent marathon he participated in.

Not content with just achieving his personal goals, Matt sought a way to inspire others to achieve their goals.

Coaching Experience

During his first year of coaching, Matt traveled to Oregon (home of legendary U.S. runner Steve Prefontaine) to obtain USATF coaching certification.

From there, Matt launched a Half Marathon/Marathon training group with the Presidio YMCA in San Francisco. All of Matt's runners successfully completed their respective event.

Matt's coaching odyssey continued when he became Head Coach for Fleet Feet Sports in San Francisco; training runners for half marathons and 12ks. Additionally, Matt was the Advanced Speed Training Coach for the National AIDS Marathon Training Program in San Francisco.

Interested in empowering individual runners to achieve and exceed their personal running goals, Matt launched 'Marathon Matt-Personal Coaching for Runners'.

Matt's clients have completed marathons, posted personal records, gotten into better shape, and perhaps most importantly acquired a love for the sport of running and many continue to run on their own today.
