Editorial Reviews

Bill Rodgers
A well-written and enjoyable book, one that every beginner runner should read.

- Bill Rodgers, Four-time Winner of the Boston and New York City Marathons
Lori Otter
Anyone who THINKS they WANT to complete a marathon CAN COMPLETE a marathon....and a book like Heart and Sole is just the type of cheerleading and practical information a person needs to cross off another goal in their life. Once the decision is made to take on the marathon challenge, the only thing left is how painful or joyful the journey will be. Melinda has created a wonderful source of information—and inspiration.

- Lori Otter, First Lady of Idaho
Jeffrey Ulmer
Having managed the City of Trees marathon and half marathon for over a decade now, I agree with what Melinda advocates in her book. Men and women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds can run 26 miles. By nicely sharing the stories of individuals across all walks of life, Heart and Sole proves that anyone can take that leap of faith – and go for it.

- Jeffrey V. Ulmer, City Of Trees Marathon Association Inc. Executive Director and President of BlueCircleSports.com
Andrija Barker
From choosing a race, to dressing for a race, to training your body and mind for the feat, Hinson Neely has created an entertaining and inspiring guidebook for all who aspire to 'hit the ground running.' The sometimes elusive, and often daunting 26.2 mile distance, no longer feels so far out of reach.

- Andrija Barker, Five-time fastest Idahoan female, 2012 Women’s Fitness Celebration (5K) champion, One and only marathon - 2:54, Half-marathon - 1:17
