Mario Fraioli

Mario Fraioli has lived in the Bay Area since 2014 and has called Marin County home since 2016. He’s coached runners of all ability levels and has helped them achieve personal bests, Boston Marathon qualifying times, national championship titles, Olympic Trials appearances, international podiums, world championship teams, national records, and even the Olympic Games.

He publishes the morning shakeout—a weekly email newsletter that covers running and other worthwhile topics—and also hosts its namesake podcast, where he gleans insight and inspiration from the sport’s top athletes, coaches, and personalities.

As an athlete, Mario has raced competitively from the 800 meters to ultramarathon distances. He was an NCAA Division II cross-country All-American in 2003 and has personal bests including 4:09 for the mile, 2:27 in the marathon, and 7:59 for 50 miles.

A native of Massachusetts, Mario lives north of the Golden Gate Bridge with his wife Christine, their four bikes, and dozens of pairs of running shoes.
