Publishers Description
The authors of Marathoning for Mortals now show beginning runners how to fit running into their lifestyle easily

You don't have to run fast or competitively to reap the rewards that running has to offer. What you do need is the courage to start. That is the "Penguin mantra" that has enabled John Bingham—through his best-selling book No Need for Speed, his popular monthly column for Runner's World magazine, and his many appearances at major running events throughout the year—to inspire thousands of men and women to take up the sport for fitness and the sheer enjoyment that running brings them.

By teaming up with coach Jenny Hadfield, his wife and coauthor on Marathoning for Mortals, Bingham lays out strategies that will help readers to safely and effortlessly integrate runs into their busy schedules. In this book, backed by Runner's World, the authority of America's leading running magazine, the authors provide tips for getting started, sticking to a routine, eating for energy, hydration, and training for speed and endurance.

Best Book I Have Ever Read....  Nov 13, 2008
....simply because I can't stand reading.

I got this book because it was recomended to me.

I just started to get active again. I, like the author, was aging, overweight, and couldnt play with my kids without getting out of breath.

I started dieting, changing my lifestyle, and running.

The running part, was the hardest part.

This book, explains everything that will happen to your body. Lays it out, it plain terms, and really inspires you once you know what is happening to you, is normal.

I got this about 2 months into my running lifestyle. The first 2 chapters, all I kept saying is, "Woah, THAT'S why my legs hurt when I did this, Ohhhhh, that's why I felt I could go longer, and physically couldn't."

This book is a must have for the beginning runner.

If you are teetering on this, let me break this down honestly.

In Aug 08, I was 283 pounds. Today, 11/13/08 I am 240, and I ran my first 5k this weekend in 29 mins. My blood pressure and cholesterol have dropped DRAMATICALLY.

I owe it all to running.
Informative  Sep 30, 2008
Much of this book is about inspiring people who have never run at all .. in fact, who have never really done any sports and are in bad shape all around. So you'll find a lot of inspirational material that a person already active in sports won't be interested in. But there's still plenty of information about running itself (shoes to buy, training programs, etc.)
This book is a boost!  Jul 27, 2008
This book was exactly what I was looking for. I had been running for a few months and my enthusiasm was starting to deminish. This book gave some very good pointers as well as helped me to identify with others who were beginners to the sport. I found out some things I needed to correct and felt encouraged at learning there were things I was doing that was right on the money. Also, the reading was entertaining and light. I believe if you are new to this sport, this is the book for you!
Good book unless you have read Marathoning for Mortals  Jul 10, 2008
I started out reading Marathoning for Mortals since it was available at the local library for free. When I decided I was not ready for a whole or even half marathon I stepped up by buying this book. There is several pieces of similar information in both books. That being said it is very inspirational and the training programs in the back seem achivable for everyone from my mother-in-law to my now in training husband. I highly recommend it.
Highly Recommended  Apr 25, 2008
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I've been running recreationally on and off (sadly, mostly off) for about 10 years and I've had phases when I've ran really well regularly and when I've struggled getting 30 minutes in per week. Not only is "Running for Mortals" quite inspirational, but it also corrected so many misconceptions I've had about how to become a "better" runner. Like most people, I suppose, I always thought that if high intensity over a short period of time is good, then high intensity over a longer period is better; and that if I'm improving my 5k time every few months then I'm on the right track even if I'm really struggling to keep going faster and found it harder to do the next run. Well, I was wrong on both counts (and on several others)! Bingham and Hadfield explain that there's ONLY one way to become a better runner and only one way to enjoy this sport over an extended period of time (I won't ruin it by giving the answer away). Suffice it to say that running "harder" is almost never "better". Bingham and Hadfield give many detailed technical tips on how to improve and explains the proper mental atitude to adopt. And I believe the training plans included in the last part of the book serve both experts and novices quite well. Even if I do almost all of my running indoors, I now have a renewed outlook on running and have become more patient and smart about how to go about achieving, and ENJOYING, my running goals. Most of all, both my wife and I have fully committed to doing the programs together so this book started us out on a new shared experience that'll hopefully last many years.
