From the Author:

AT LAST! Complete rewrite is off and running April 1999
It took over two years to write this book. Why so long for the 3d edition (1983 and 1988 were #1 & #2)? First, it is 700 pages long. Second, so much has changed with research and with our experiences coaching over 3,000 runners each year in our New York Road Runner's Club classes that I had to throw out the old editions and start all over. This book is very, very thorough. It contains everything you need to guide you to success for 5K, 10K, half-marathon and marathon racing--and all the distances in between. Most important, it is written the way we coach--in a fun, lively style that will get you pumped up to enjoy your running and to run a great race.

About the Author:
