About the Author
Bart Yasso is Chief Running Officer for Runner’s World and one of the most beloved figures in the sport. Affectionately dubbed the “Mayor of Running,” Bart is the public face of Runner’s World at races in the United States and abroad. Bart has been with Runner’s World since 1987, and has been instrumental in growing what was once a very small race sponsorship program to one that has linked the brand with thousands of races and millions of runners.
Bart is also known for creating Yasso 800s, a marathon-predictor workout that has been used by thousands of runners. His memoir, My Life on the Run, is a perennial top seller at the Runner’s World booth (especially when Bart is on hand to sign copies!). He has also contributed to the Runner’s World Big Book of Marathon and Half Marathon Training and Runner’s World Big Book of Running for Beginners. One of the icons of the sport, Bart has been inducted into the Running USA Hall of Champions.
Erin Strout is a contributing editor at Runner’s World and former senior editor at Running Times. Since 2013, she has covered the top levels of the sport, from the Boston Marathon to the Rio Olympics, for the Runner’s World Newswire. As a freelance writer and editor with 20 years of journalism experience, Erin has also contributed to leading health and fitness publications and is a former staff reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education, where she covered philanthropy and also wrote in-depth pieces concerning NCAA sports and campus health. An avid runner, Erin lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.

This book is equal parts a race memoir and training tips. A lot of Badwater Bart’s personal details are known due to his frequent writing for Runner’s World, but I enjoyed some new to me details, such as the specific races that his Lyme flares affected. I liked his history with some of the iconic road races-like him, some of these races have aged and are no longer the race they were, so this was a nice look back through running history as well as Yasso’s running history.
I appreciated that the general training plans (the Runner’s World standard ones, I think) were accompanied by race-specific ones. Of particular use is his plan to “callous” the quads, which he covered in his chapter on Boston. This isn’t anything that can’t be found online, but it was nice to have it in one volume.
Overall, I’m glad I read this but glad I didn’t buy it, as it isn’t one I’d keep and there wasn’t a ton of material if you’re already familiar with Bart’s Runner’s World career. And if you’re a runner at all involved in the online running community, you probably are because there’s a reason he’s a legend. David Willey’s foreward set the perfect tone. The book gave me some nice training tips I plan to implement and some races I might think about (running definitely re-scratches the travel itch! But hasn’t rekindled Antarctica fire), but nothing earth shattering. A fun, light read. My one complaint, he kept writing “breaking” when he meant “braking”. It was slightly distracting
