There are many who believe that the popularity of running in America took off after Bill Rodgers won his first New York Marathon in 1976. Certainly, his record is unparalleled. "Boton Billy" is the only runner to win the New York and Boston Marathons four times each, and the only runner to win all three of the world's major marathons within a 12-month period.
Now, in Bill Rodgers' Lifetime Running Plan, the "King of the Road" offers practical and invaluable information that runners of all ages and levels can apply to a lifelong pursuit of running. Along with regimens and strategies specifically tailored for the different age groups, Bill Rodgers covers the full range of issues and concerns for all runners--everything from getting started to countering the effects of aging.

Bill Rodgers has won both the New York and Boston Marathons four times each, an unprecedented feat. Still an active marathoner, Rodgers is a monthly columnist and contributing editor at Running Times magazine. He lives in Sherborn, MA.Review:
"Bill Rodgers' four wins in New York and in Boston inspired my own running and training in the 80s. Now Bill Rodgers' Lifetime Running Plan is an inspiration to me in the 90s. This book is full of words to live by--right on into the 21st century." -- Alberto Salazar
"Bill's perspective on running is truly uplifting and fascinating. His appreciation and respect for runners of all ages and abilities along with his experiences in training, racing, traveling and living from the early days of the running boom to its present-day popularity make Bill Rodger's Lifetime Running Plan a thoroughly entertaining and useful book." -- Joan Benoit Samuelson
"I relate to so much of what Bill has to say. It is refreshing to find out that he feels the same way about many aspects of running I always thought were just my own personal feelings. I know other runners at various levels will react the same way. I truly enjoyed this book." -- Grete Waitz
"No runner has defined the gremlins of injury and burnout better than Bill Rodgers, so I was eager to read this book. I completely agree with his premise that the key to personal success is in adapting training to one's individual body and personality. This is good, sound information for beginner and expert alike. I learned something from this book and, as a result, I have altered my own daily approach to running. I urge you to do the same." -- Frank Shorter
