Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Run Your Butt Off! is not just another diet book; it’s a gateway to a running-based lifestyle that can work for anyone. Thank you, Runner’s World, for this valuable tool in the ongoing national fight against obesity and inactivity.”

Mary Wittenberg, President and CEO, New York Road Runners Race Director, ING New York City Marathon

 

“One of the keys to getting through that first step of training is to break running down into manageable bite-size pieces, which is exactly what Run Your Butt Off! has done.”

Ryan Hall, Olympian and American record holder in the half-marathon

Library Journal
This basic guide for individuals interested in starting a program for better health has a good mix of expertise—Bonci is a nutritionist, and Butler and Coates are affiliated with Runner's World magazine. In chapters such as "It Starts with a Single Step" and "Fight the Urge To Sit," the authors provide motivational help while emphasizing the premise that success is based on burning fewer calories than calories consumed. They walk readers through the calculation of their basal metabolic rate and ultimate caloric limitations. Their structured program of exercise progresses from walking to running and culminates in a routine of running for 30 minutes nonstop. The 12-stage program is built so that readers can progress at their own rate, working through the entire program in 12 weeks or taking it at a slower pace. VERDICT A commonsense guide for those interested in gaining a healthier lifestyle through a running program.—Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib. & Information Ctr., Atlanta

    like the writer's style

    I have read some of Lorge-Butler's pieces before Runner's World and like her tone....unlike most writers who cover running, she doesn't assume the reader is training for the Olympics...she doesn't talk down the every day, a couple miles a day runner. Just bought this book and hope to adopt its plan for my own. Can't everyoe use a little less butt!?!?!?!

    This book is aimed at non-runners who would like to learn how to

    This book is aimed at non-runners who would like to learn how to begin running. Th book featured a target group of people who tested the system. Different chapters of the book featured what things worked for that member of the test panel as well as for other beginning runners. I appreciated their honesty and the struggles, as well as, successes that they shared.

    This book gives you a very clear workout plan to begin running. You start with walking for 30 minutes straight and work in more running each week, or however long it takes you to feel ready to move to the next step of the workout.

    I ran/walked a 5K in June so I am obviously ahead of week 1 already, but I truly appreciated the explanation that running doesn't necessarily mean fast. I think I have been trying to push myself to run faster, but I can still get just as good of a workout in running at my walking rate or a tad faster. I am anxious to see if this extends my time that I can run.

    The steps into full-on 30 minute running are gradual and at your own pace which I appreciate. The book also gives lot of websites and tracking journals for you to use. A lot of the book also includes nutrition tips and heavily encourages you to keep a food journal. As a new runner, I am not always sure what is the best to eat/drink before and after a run and this book explains all of that.

    I really appreciated the tips in this book and had a few Aha! moments. I am anxious to really get started with this plan because it is one of the few that really feels manageable.

    I read this book on my Kindle, but I almost wish I had this book in hand because of the workbooks and journals it includes. I can go online and print them off though, which I appreciate.

    If you have never been a runner, want to get back into running, or are just curious about eating right and working out, I highly recommend this book. "Those first few steps are a leap of faith." Won't you take the leap with me?

    So far so good

    The goals given are very realistic and straightforward. It's perfect for an absolute beginner like me, and I couldn't be happier with it.

    Plantar Fasciitis

    Runners who have plantar fasciitis that interferes with their running might also be interested in "The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution."

    ♘ THE PAWN PROLOGUE ♙

    The small wolf nervously raced through the dark. Her pelt snagged on the trees that seemed to be attempting to stop her. "Jay, stop" a voice seemed to whisper from the sky. "Do not run with your tail tucked between your legs Jay. Fac your destiny and embrace it." The she wolf glanced up toward the sky "I am not an echo of my mother!" She howled to the sky. "I never asked you to be." Confused Jay tilted her head. "What do you mean?" <br>
    "The world crumbles Jay. Life is short. We must choose to either take our own path, or follow the path Lupa set down for us. But you Jay. You have no choice. You must follow your destiny. You must save us. For even the stars won't survive if the earth doesn't." The she wolf looked up. "Who are you? And what do you mean?" The sky chuckled. "I cannot answer who. But you must unite the 4 kingdoms. A champion from each. The mighty lion of the north, the crafty cat of the east, the keen eagle of the West. And a wolf. A clever wolf of the south. Each has a skill, needed to save the world. Embrace this Jay. The world falls to war. And the center itself, is overheating. " Jay nodded. "I will try. But I am scared." the sky rumbled. "Wolves do not feel FEAR!" The voice thundered. "Go. Find my champions. Bring them to the sky rim. The world falls in 40 days. Go now my pawn. Find the players of the chess board. And pray you do not fail.". <br>
    Sorry it was short but quick explanation. The world has basicly been dieing over the past 800 years because of radio activity. The humans killed eachother and animals are all that is left. So yeah! Hope you enjoy! Characters please!
