One of Self magazine’s 46 Best Gifts for Runners to Help Them Reach a New P.R.
“A must-have for any woman targeting the distance. Most marathon training manuals are written by men, which means they don’t necessarily consider woman-specific issues—different body types, strengths and weaknesses, hormones—when it comes to training. Regardless of your running level—beginner, intermediate, or advanced—Master the Marathon will prepare you for the 26.2-mile physical and mental journeys ahead.”
“There are a lot of marathon training guides out there, but not many are specifically tailored to the needs of women. Whether you’re embarking on training for your first marathon, or you want to zero in on the tweaks necessary to rock your next one, this book is a must-read that’s packed with solid expert advice.”
“A must-read guide . . . Throughout, the author is frank and encouraging: ‘Every mile you put into it will give you something in return.’ Women looking for a guide to long distance running need look no further.”
