The Beginning Runner's Handbook

Running has never felt so GOOD

I really got my money’s worth. I have to disagree with S. Brown’s review. He claims that the book offers common sense advice. Well, from reading the personal anecdotes in this book and from my own experience, much of the ‘common sense’ advice isn’t really common sense.

This book offers great advice not only to novice runners, but to recreational runners as well. Aspiring runners learn how to start slowly and gradually build their strength and endurance without getting injured–very important! Also, they learn about appropriate running apparel and choosing the right shoes, staying motivated, setting realistic goals, and keeping a well-balanced diet. For recreational runners, check out the chapter: “Becoming a Better Runner.” It gives excellent advice on how to improve running technique.

I’ve definitely learned from this book and have put some newfound knowledge to good use. Now, running doesn’t feel like a pain-in-the-butt workout anymore. Now, I actually enjoy running!
