Hi Jeff, Chris from Denver here.  Wanted to drop you a quick line.  I had an amazing race last weekend, finishing my first full with a 4:01, which I was thrilled about.

I feel stiff the next day, but uninjured and tired, and not completely burnt out. 
Your book was an amazing resource, and helped lead me through a healthy, confident training season.  To put things in perspective, last March was my first 10k – I was reluctant to sign up at first – didn’t think I could possibly pull off that kind of distance.

      Thanks, Malcolm! Thanks for the kind words, and good luck in your race!!! I ran Sydney a few years ago and love the race and the country (and wrote about it in a journal called Marathon & Beyond). Let me know how the race goes for you.
