Editorial Reviews

Review

"For anyone serious about running, Advanced Marathoning offers the latest information for optimizing performance. If you are preparing for a marathon, I highly recommend this book."

Meb Keflezighi

2009 ING New York City Marathon Champion
2004 Olympic Marathon Silver Medalist

"After retiring from competition as an elite middle-distance runner, I decided to try marathons. All of my training has been based on what I learned in Advanced Marathoning, and I haven't been disappointed. Read this book, stick to the program, follow their advice, and I guarantee that you will be ready to run a great marathon."
Steve Holman
1992 U.S. Olympic track and field team member (1,500 meters)
Ranked fourth in the world in 1995 and fifth in 1994

Pete Pfitzinger ran in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic marathons, both times finishing as the top American. With a personal best of 2:11:43, Pfitzinger is a two-time winner of the San Francisco Marathon and placed third in the 1987 New York City Marathon. He was ranked the top American marathoner in 1984 by Track & Field News, and he is a member of the Road Runners Club of America's Hall of Fame. Currently the chief executive of the New Zealand Academy of Sport in Auckland, he has written all or parts of two other books on running and was a senior writer for Running Times from 1997 to 2007, in which his popular column, "The Pfitzinger Lab Report," appeared.
