Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For over 3 decades, I would have never expected I'd become a runner in any way, shape, or form. The notion of even completing one 5k seemed far-fetched, inconceivable was the thought of ever dreaming of a marathon finish. The thought of anyone ever referring to me as "a runner" seemed absolutely absurd.

Well, it seems that after happily participating in countless events ranging from 3.1 miles to 100, there's no denying that I'm happy to be considered a runner!
With all the twists and turns my life has taken over the past decade from launching the ESPN Triathlon Team (before I ever learned to swim), becoming a race director by launching a running series before I'd ever really mastered the marathon to developing a deep love for all distances from 1 mile to 26.2 & beyond and becoming a full-time fitness author, coach and athlete - running has been a staple in my life. Running is my training, therapy, a chance to relax and unwind, the need for speed; slow and easy or fast and challenging - running is a huge part of my physical and mental well-being and has been my transportation on journeys I never would have expected both inside myself and over the tens of thousands of miles I've covered.
7 Weeks to a 10k covers some of how and why I found my passion for running, and hopefully help you find it too. With training plans for the beginner looking to complete their first race to an experienced runner searching for the insight and training programs to set a new personal best, this book is written to appeal to all runners.
So much of the conventional "wisdom" that is prescribed to runners of all levels is to "log more and more miles" in order to get faster or stronger... and for most that just leads to overtraining, boredom, injury and stopping running altogether. In 7 Weeks to a 10k, I cover running a LOT less quantity and focus on quality runs and place a much-needed emphasis on cross-training to promote strength, speed and flexibility... you may be amazed to learn that running isn't just using your legs!

From the Inside Flap

Run Less. Get Stronger. Get Faster.
It's not only possible, the answer is in your hands right now.
Focusing on shorter-distance, higher-quality runs and cross-training, you'll quickly develop the speed, strength, and endurance you need to crush any distance - starting with the 10k!

More About the Author

I'm that fat kid in gym class who can't do a single pull-up.
I'm the 30 year old overweight smoker who gets winded walking up a flight of stairs.
I'm an Ironman finisher, ultramathoner, fitness model & author.

I know what it feels like to be picked last in sports, get laughed at by classmates (and my p.e. teacher) during the Presidential Fitness Test and be content with being overweight and unhappy with my appearance.

My goal is to show others how energizing and exciting getting fit can be with easy-to-use and fun programs.
