The Non-Runners Marathon Trainer by David Whitsett, Forrest Dolgener, Tanjala Kole

Athlete. Runner. Marathoner. Are these words you wouldnt exactly use to describe yourself? Do you consider yourself too old or too out of shape to run a marathon? But somewhere deep inside have you always admired the people who could reach down and come up with the mental and physical strength to complete such a daunting and rewarding accomplishment? It doesnt have to be somebody else crossing the finish line. You can be a marathoner.The Non-Runners Marathon Traineris based on the highly successful marathon class offered by the University of Northern Iowa, which was featured in aRunners Worldarticle titled Marathoning 101. The class has been offered five times over 10 years, and all but one student finished the marathon. That is approximately 200 students -- all first time marathoners and many with absolutely no running background. This book follows the same 16-week, four-day-a-week workout plan. What makes the success rate of this program so much higher than any other? The special emphasis on the psychological aspects of endurance activities. You dont have to love to run -- you dont even have to like it -- but you have to realize that you are capable of more than you have ever thought possible. One participant in the program explained it like this: Im doing this for me -- not for others or the time clock. I just feel better when I run, plus it helps me to cope with things in general. The skills weve learned in this class dont apply just to marathoning -- they apply to life! Just like you never know what the next step in a marathon will bring, so too, you never know what will happen next in life. But if you dont keep going, youre never going to find out. By staying relaxed, centered, and positive you handle just about anything that comes your way. This is marathon running for real people, people with jobs and families and obligations outside of running.The Non-Runners Marathon Trainerhas proven successful for men and women of all ages. Now let it work for you.
