Editorial Reviews

Review

“At the end of every marathon training run, I recite the Penguin mantra: 'The miracle isn't that I finished, it's that I had the courage to start.' I thank John Bingham for bolstering my courage and helping me run, literally, for my life.” —Jessica Stedman Guff, senior producer of ABC-TV's The View

“Jenny Hadfield is an amazing motivator. She makes regular people believe that they can undertake amazing things--and then she's there all the way to encourage them, right down to the finish line. I've never met another coach quite like her.” —Kathy O'Malley, WGN Radio--Chicago talk show host in training for her first marathon

5.0 out of 5 stars One Happy Mortal!
By Laura Adair on October 22, 2018
Two days ago I ran and completed my first marathon at 53. Running a marathon was never on my bucket list. My wife and I are nominal 5K-ers but a rep from Team World Vision came and spoke at our church and we decided we'd give it a try for charity - if you don't know Team World Vision runs to fund clean water wells in Africa. This book was a TRREMENDOUS resource for me. It covers the nuts and bolts of training and the race as well as the mental/emotional aspects. I used so many things in this book that all I can say is just get it. It's fun and easy to read and will help get you ready for the big day. I honestly can say that race day morning found me excited more than nervous due in part to this book. If you are new to endurance running as I was, this is perfect for you. I needed something to cut through all the running white noise out there and this was it! Now on to the next race (after recovery)!
