How to go from couch potato to
marathon runner in one year, without losing your cool.
Ben Kaplan has transformed himself from an average
guy-and degenerate barfly-into a dedicated runner who qualified for
the Boston Marathon. Now, the National Post running
columnist shares his strategy in this guide to preparing for a
marathon in one year, even if you have never run before. The book
provides a week-by-week training program, along with critical
information about nutrition, hydration, race strategy, pacing, and
proper form, with input from experts from around the world. Kaplan
also writes about music for the National Post and includes
recommendations for songs to run to by musicians he has
interviewed, from Paul Simon to Justin Bieber.
