12: Athlete Nutrition Profile - Coach Mario Fraioli of The Morning Shakeout

“Instead of focusing on how fast I could go, or how many miles I could run, my main mission every day was to see how many calories I could burn. It became a game. I got more excited by seeing low numbers on the scale than I did by seeing faster splits on my watch.” - Mario Fraioli

Welcome to Episode 12 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring running coach, writer, and podcast host, Mario Fraioli. 

Mario is deeply entrenched in the running scene, and there’s a good chance you have already read or listened to something that he created. He has been running competitively since high school, coaching runners since 2004, was a Senior Editor at Competitor magazine for six years, and in 2015 launched the morning shakeout, consisting of a weekly newsletter and podcast. I subscribe to both and highly encourage you do the same! So much great content. 

I was grateful to catch Mario in late September, during a short window of time that he had between vacation and work travel. He was very generous with his time and all the details of his athletic and nutrition story. In particular, Mario has been very open about his past struggles with disordered eating as a young athlete just out of college, and we focused on this quite a bit - so if this is a topic of interest to you, definitely have a listen. 

A bit of background on Mario - he was a cross-country All-American at Stonehill College, and has raced competitively from the mile to ultramarathon distances. He is based in the Bay Area with his wife, and currently has a full roster of coaching clients while training for a variety of races himself. He actually broke his 11-year marathon PR at CIM last year, and is running the NYC marathon for the first time this November! 

Good luck, Mario - looking forward to hearing how NYC goes!
