Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helpful Resource Good book that is succinct and personal. I found it had useful information that can be very beneficial for the novice runner but less critical for those who have been running for a couple of years already. I did wish there was more information but was happy overall. There are some great nuggets in there, good pictures for stretching and strength training and varied training program suggestions. A nice addition to a runner's library that does have that woman's perspective which was very helpful for me.
