"Lynch and Scott are great coaches for the minds and hearts of runners everywhere. Running Within provides practical exercises for your head and your heart. It offers great workouts for the mind. Finally, the head has a chance to catch up with the feet.""

Whether you run a mile or 100 miles a week, Running Within will help you do it better.""
