He has worked with over 200,000 average people in training for specific goals and Galloway's quest for an injury-free marathon training program led him to develop group training programs in 1978.

I love the way the book is organized and also the way in which it makes sure that I don't overdo it in my quest to run a half marathon. I will let you know late how it worked out.... my plan is to ryn a half in October 2012.
