Product Details


“I know from firsthand experience how critical injury prevention and treatment are to a runner’s performance, and Dr. Jordan Metzl’s Running Strong covers these subjects thoroughly. If you want to achieve your distance-running goals, this book is for you.” —Meb Keflezighi, champion marathoner and author of Meb for Mortals

“A while back, my knees were hurting so much that I was having trouble even walking up stairs. I met with Dr. Metzl, and after a couple of quick tips, I was back to my 5 a.m. daily runs. How great it is that now he has a book in which he can share his expertise with the world.” —Hoda Kotb, cohost, TODAY

“For an ultramarathoner such as me, who is constantly pushing himself to his physical limits and beyond, health isn’t just important, it’s everything. And while most runners will never attempt to run 135 miles across Death Valley in the middle of summer, this outstanding book is an indispensible tool for anyone looking to stay healthy and strong no matter the distance.” —Dean Karnazes, ultramarathoner and New York Times bestselling author

“Over the course of 40-plus years as a competitive runner, I’ve run 3,452 miles across the United States, completed 137 marathons, 9 Ironman triathlons, and logged more than 150,000 miles on the road. But there’s no way I could ever have done any of that had I been plagued by injury. As a competitive endurance athlete himself, Dr. Jordan Metzl knows as well as anyone how to prevent injuries and to treat them when they inevitably arise. In Running Strong, he distills his vast knowledge in an accessible manner that is sure to benefit runners of all ages and abilities.” —Dave McGillivray, president, DMSE Sports, Inc.; race director, BAA Boston Marathon

“Dr Jordan Metzl, a leading sports medicine doctor, invites runners from around the world into his office with Running Strong. The combination of information with the personal touch of video provides the desired feeling of caring help. It is an interesting and effective approach which is sure to help runners of all abilities.” —Uta Pippig, three-time winner of the Boston and Berlin marathons

“Running is a gateway to a healthy and happy life. Dr. Metzl captures that spirit perfectly in Running Strong.” —Mary Wittenberg, president & CEO, New York Road Runners; race director, TCS New York City Marathon

“The two words every endurance athlete holds near and dear to their heart are INJURY-FREE. Dr. Jordan Metzl’s Running Strong breaks down best practices for runners of all ages and ability levels to stay injury-free while taking their training to the next level.” —Bart Yasso, chief running officer, Runner’s World
