He is a successful endurance writer and the author of many books including, "Running the Dream", "Racing Weight", "How Bad Do You Want It", "The Comeback Quotient" and the latest book that just hit the bookshelves, "How to Run Like A Pro: Even If You're Slow" that he co-authored with NAZ Elite coach Ben Rosario. Matt has run over forty marathons AND an Ironman triathlon. Matt is also a coach as well as a certified sports nutritionist and he steadily contributes heavily to endurance sports on many levels.
