Running for Health, Fitness, and Peak Performance by Frank Shorter

Running “Getting in shape” comprises a good chunk of New Year’s resolutions.  And hey, just because you haven’t started yet, it doesn’t mean the entire year is shot.  Pick your method of torture/bliss.  Mine is jogging.  And when the library acquired this book, I liked it well enough to buy my own copy.

Shorter doesn’t promise the easy path, but he does present the sport of running as a fun and attainable activity.  From beginners to the would-be marathoner, there’s something for everybody in this well illustrated book, including training programs, injury prevention tips, and more.

Even though Shorter is well past his glory days (he won the 1972 Olympics marathon in Munich, among other accolades) I figure that he knows what he’s talking about, and frankly (no pun intended) he’d probably still smoke most of us on a track, any day.
