Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good information for begginers and seasoned runners alike. Highly recommended.
As an avid long distance runner, I find this book great for days when you don't have motivation, or looking for some advice. I love the pictures, and since it was written by an editor of Running Times, and not Runners World, it has more credibility. I find this very informative as well as inspiring! Definite favorite.
Kind looks stupid
