Review: Runner's World Guide to Road Racing: Run Your First (or Fastest) 5-K, 10-K, Half-Marathon, or Marathon

User Review  - Rachael - Goodreads

I've been running for 5 months and have done roughly 5 races. The beginning of this book was OK but then had a lot of great information. Anyone just starting running/racing this is a great book. Some items made me sad like the Boston Marathon talk and lance Armstrong. Read full review
