ABOUT THE BOOK

So, you want to run a marathon?

Everyone who makes the decision to run a marathon has their own reasons. Maybe you want to train for a particular race. Or maybe you want to lose weight. Or perhaps you just want to try a new form of exercise. Or, or, or...the list goes on and on.

If you are a beginner and you have made the lofty decision to train to run a marathon, then this is the guide for you. Are you a beginner? For this guide, if you cannot yet run for 30 minutes straight, you are a beginner. If you cannot run 30 minutes or cannot run for just 10 minutes, dont worry, you will get there soon. This guide will also be helpful for people who are in shape but do not run. For instance, if you have been doing martial arts for years, consider yourself physically fit, and do not run, you can still benefit from this guide.

Running can have all sorts of benefits. One of the most common benefits is the possibility of weight loss. Combined with healthy eating, running is a great way to lose excess body fat.

The most important piece of running equipment you buy are the shoes. Beat up shoes you pull from the back of your closet will not work. Tennis shoes or shoes made for fashion will not work either. You need a good pair of running shoes that will support your feet and ankles. (Active.com, Basic Gear for a Beginning Runner)

It is also not as simple as going to your nearest shoe store and picking out the prettiest running shoe. There are three different kinds of running shoes...
