In the fall of 2012, quirky and cat-loving Cleveland librarian Jill Grunenwald got an alarming email from her younger sister: her sister was very concerned with Jill’s weight and her overall mental and physical health. Having always struggled with her weight, Jill was currently hitting the scales at more than three hundred pounds. Right then, Jill looked in the mirror and decided that she needed to make a life-style change, pronto. She enrolled in Weight Watchers and did something else that she—the girl who avoided gym class like the plague in high school—never thought she’d do; Jill started running. And believe it or not, it wasn’t that bad. Actually, it was kind of fun.<BR><BR>Three months later, Jill did the previously unthinkable and ran her very first 5k at the Cleveland Metropolitan Zoo. Battling the infamous hills of the course, Jill conquered her fears and finished—but in dead last. Yep, the police were reopening the streets behind her. But Jill didn’t let that get her down—because when you run for your health and happiness, your only real competition is yourself.<BR><BR>Six years and more than one hundred pounds lost later, Jill is still running and racing regularly, and she is a proud member of the back of the pack in every race that she has entered. In <I>Running with a Police Escort</I>, Jill chronicles her racing adventures, proving that being a slow runner takes just as much guts and heart as being an Olympic champion. At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, <I>Running with a Police Escort</I> is for every runner who has never won a race but still loves the sport.<BR><BR>Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.<BR><BR>In addition to books on popular team sports, we also publish books for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, including books on running, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, martial arts, golf, camping, hiking, aviation, boating, and so much more. While not every title we publish becomes a <I>New York Times</I> bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

I have counseled over 1,000 patients and have helped them learn how to lose weight without dieting and to permanently release the bonds of yo-yo dieting and fad dieting as well.</p><p>My personal experience, clinical experience, and medical data together led me to write this book.</p><h3><br /><strong>Three Areas of Focus</strong></h3><p><strong>No More Dieting! focuses on three specific categories:</strong></p><p><em><strong>Mind</strong></em> - all change first begins here. Without the right mindset, you can't permanently lose weight.<br /><em><strong>Motion</strong></em> - to live a healthy lifestyle, you must take action and get into MOTION.<br /><em><strong>Medication</strong></em> - this is sometimes needed to help some people reach optimal weight.<br /><br /><em><strong>No More Dieting! </strong></em>will equip you with the right mindset to lose weight freely.

<p><strong>A <em>New York Times</em> Sports and Fitness Bestseller<br /><br /><br /><br />An eye-opening exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training.</strong></p><br /><p>In recent years <em>recovery</em> has become a sports and fitness buzzword.

She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady’s infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles’ pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps’s “cupping” ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas.</p><br /><p>At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, <em>Good to Go</em> seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?</p>

<b>From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury</b><br /><br /> Christopher McDougall’s <i>Born to Run</i>—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.  <br /><br /> More than a one-size-fits-all guide, <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.
