So you have your training plan laid out for the next six months. But you’re a busy person, with real commitments to your family or career. How are you going to balance all of this, let alone the hurdles like bad weather or illness that will inevitably arise, while still reaching your marathon goal?
Running Ahead of the Sun focuses on the real experiences of a real runner with real dreams, who had to overcome most of the same challenges you will face, while recovering from injury to reach for his marathon goal. Packed with insights on not just the details of the training itself, but on such topics as maintaining the support of your family as running takes up more of your time, the book provides an invaluable companion to your training log.
The reviews continue to come in for Running Ahead of the Sun:
Tim Meier, who ran a 2:40 in the 2012 Paris Marathon, says, “Thanks for publishing your book the week of the race and giving me a HUGE mental boost!”
Stefan Smith, who broke 3:00 for the first time at the 2012 Paris Marathon, adds, “You have no idea how much your sound, common sense has helped. Your Towpath race report was in my head a lot today.”
Fred Blizzard, an accomplished runner with a 3:02 PR in the marathon, says, “I finished the book in 2 sittings. Loved the content and the advice. This is a great book which I will read again, most likely prior to my next marathon or key race.”
Maddy Hribar, who already has a 3:12 NYC Marathon finish under her belt, states, “Just finished your book. Now I am all amped up to run a sub 3 Mary and need to sign up for another marathon. Your book should come with a warning label.”
Steve Hawryluk actually put down the book he was reading to fit in Running Ahead of the Sun, and he clearly felt it was worthwhile
Christian High reported that he couldn’t wait to get back to reading it each time he put it down, and it was far more than expected.
