From the lead author of Build Your Running Body (“the best running book ever”—Runner’s World founder Bob Anderson), a one-of-a-kind guide for everyone who wants to run but feels they can’t As a drug-addled young man, Pete Magill once found himself in the ER, with his body telling him to give up.

Through inspiration, science, and anecdote, Magill gets runners out the door; through personal action plans, he sets them on the right path; and through the best exercises to protect and rehabilitate the body, he keeps them going—showing a way forward for new and sidelined runners who haven’t before realized how close they are to fun and pain-free running!
