Newly revised, this is the most up-to-date, practical guide ever published for women runners of every level

Today, women make up more than half of the nations runners. And, as more and more women have hit the roads and trails and laced up for 5-Ks and marathons, the research showing the effects of running on the female body has grown significantly, too.

The truth is that even though the gap between men's and women's world best times is shrinking, the latest scientific evidence shows that running is a dramatically different experience for women than menphysically, mentally, and emotionally.

That's why it's time for an expert guide created especially for women runners. Introducing the Runner's World Complete Book of Women's Running. Inside, it's chock-full of brand-new tips, the latest research, and contributions from more than 100 experts, addressing all of the special needs of women runners, including:

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.
