Now completely updated and revised--a new edition of the long-running marathon training guide that has helped more than half a million people reach their goals.
Hal Higdon is the author of thirty-five books and hundreds of articles for magazines as diverse as Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Boys' Life, and The New York Times Magazine. He was among the founders of the Road Runners Club of America and a finalist in the competition to become NASA's Journalist in Space. The American Society of Journalists and Authors has presented Higdon with its Career Achievement Award.
"Marathon adds fresh insight and certainly exhibits endurance with its fifth edition."--Amby Burfoot, coach, author, and 1968 Boston Marathon winner
"Higdon's Marathon has welcomed thousands of runners across the finish line since its initial publication in 1993. It's a must-read for both debut marathoners and veterans looking to improve their performance. Higdon's voice is synonymous with running, and the fifth edition of Marathon shows us why. This is a must-read for any runner looking to get across the finish line for the first time or the fiftieth."--Carey Pinkowski, executive director, Bank of America Chicago Marathon
