MAILBAG: A READER WEIGHS IN

Christina from Massachusetts writes:

    “I feel compelled to write to thank you for writing your book, Smart Marathon Training. I found myself crying through the first two chapters because I felt so relieved to have finally found a book that is written with common sense.
     “I’ve been a runner for many years but haven’t run a marathon in about 8. I started training again last year and quickly found myself injured for the first time ever. Since then, I’ve been struggling to get back on track through several more injuries. It’s clear that I need a new strategy.
     “I feel so encouraged and inspired by your book. It’s super easy to read, describes a reasonable schedule, and explains to me step by step what I need to do to build my “runner’s body”. My goal is to qualify for Boston one day…I’m pretty slow now so I have quite a challenge ahead of me. I’m very hopeful that your strategies can help me reach my goal.”

I’ve asked Christina to keep in touch and let us know how Smart Marathon Training works for her.  Stay tuned!
