When people think about running a marathon, the idea becomes scary and overwhelming. That's normal! This book is designed to take a complete beginner through the process of running a marathon from start to finish. Author focuses on what seem to me to be outdated ideas of carb-loading, intensity runs, and high-tech footware. I personally find "primal endurance" thinking much more compelling. Great tips for beginners.

It does cover all areas needed to finish a marathon up to 26 miles. Stock up on GU. They're like superpowered candy. Keep your GRID roller close. Foam rolling is key to avoid IT band injuries.
I like the GRID best, because while it'll make you wince as you're kneading tight muscles and knots, you'll be avoiding greater pain in the long run. Get fitted for sneakers.
I go to Jack Rabbit and run on the in-store treadmill, so a specialist can tell me what type of sneaker is best for me, based on how my feet hit the ground. Wear the same sneaker in the race that you trained in. Buy a new pair mid-training. Learn what food your body likes. You never want to try new food on race day. I always went with a rice cake with peanut butter and banana before a run, or a Health Warrior chia bar. I carb loaded at Dig Inn the nights before my longest runs.
