Format: Paperback
Magical Running: A Unique Path To Running Fulfilment focuses on the psychology and mind-set of running, not the physical training of the body. Author and running coach Bobby McGee draws upon his years of coaching an Olympic marathon gold medallist, world record holders, world champions, and other runners to provide unique and invaluable guide about the mental preparation, the "how to", of a runner's motivation. With a text replete with anecdotes in support of his concepts and exercises, Bobby McGee documents and illustrates that running success is as much a function of attitude and the mind, as it is of leg muscles and breath control. Highly recommended reading for all aspiring runners regardless of whether they are sprinters or long-distance, novice or experienced, amateur or professional.

I have been running for nearly 30 years and in the last 3 have started doing Triathlons. To my suprise, I have become a competitive age grouper usually finishing top 3 at many events. I have been training hard on my swim, bike, run workouts doing all the things necessary to improve my times but, one area that I knew I needed work was on my mental toughness. This book has provided me with the tools I needed to make the next step. I haven't done all the drills it speaks of but, just having the awareness of the information has helped me push harder when things start getting tough. Definatley something you will want in your training bag no matter if your training for your first 5K or 10th IM.

I bought this book to help motivate me to become a better runner. I thought it was a bit hokey with too many affirmations. Maybe that works for some, but for me it was a bit over the top. there were a few nuggets I found helpful but I can't say that I was totally satisfied with the approach.

Excellent guide to use to enhance running through visualization. - My teenager helped his team win state that year! I think this book helped him use more than actual practice to run faster and keep his health strong.
