The Runner's Handbook

Recommended for every runner

I laughed today when I saw someone selling their Runner’s Handbook, and thought to myself NEVER. This and the competitive runners guide (start with this one unless you are definitely ready to start racing and run regularly already) are books that I take everywhere with me. I hardly have time for novels anymore between my running and my rereading of these two books and I’ve never been happier.

I was until December a consummate couch potato and now I’m running in the New York City Marathon this coming November and I owe it all to Bob and Shelly-Lynne Glover and these books. I don’t need to go further as all you have to do is read nigel’s review from London and you have my experience with these books.

Oh, I do want to say one thing although it was mentioned in another review as well. I think the reason most people try and give up running and say it isn’t for them is that they go out and try to run 2 miles or 20 minutes or something that seems reasonable to them, but really isn’t. Take it gradually as the book advices and you will love running and avoid the aches, pains, disappointments, and difficulties that others run into or you may have before in your life.
