One marathon per chapter with a key lesson learned, details of training, challenges, and a compelling account of the race itself. Great insights into pro running training, race strategy, mental strength. Reminds us that the pros face many of the same struggles that amateurs contend with.
Outstanding book recommended to anyone interested in improving their fitness for endurance sports.
