From the Inside Flap

We are Runner Moms. We have made running a regular and fun part of our lives. What we offer is our experience and wisdom to guide you through a great sport. We have learned not only from other runners and Moms, but from our mistakes.

We are not experts. There are many more serious running books out there that can give you detailed technical information on the mechanics, nutrition and physiology of running.

We just have fun running and hope you will too. It has become and remains a wonderful addition to our lives as moms. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was the best down-to-earth, usable book on running that I've found. It's no-nonsense advice will have you running and enjoying it. I don't run marathons, but I do run to stay fit and this book really got me motivated! It has some fantastic tips you can use right away.
The Women's Guide to Non-competitive Running is GREAT!

I suppose I should've looked into this book more carefully before I bought it, but I didn't need the author to tell me that all I needed for running are a sports bra, running shoes and water. I had that one already figured out. If you're looking for training plans and new ways to train, look elsewhere. This book assumes you know absolutely nothing about running and gives you a general overview of how to do it properly.
