<b>“Sagal has created a new genre—the five-minute-mile memoir. Combining commentary and reflection about running with a deeply felt personal story, this book is winning, smart, honest, and affecting. Whether you are a runner or not, it will move you.” —Susan Orlean</b><BR> <BR> <i><b>In the midpoint of life, I found myself lost, in a dark place. So I tried to figure out exactly how many miles I had run to get there...</b></i><BR><BR>So begins <i>The Incomplete Book of Running,</i> a funny, wise, and powerful meditation about running and life from Peter Sagal, longtime columnist for <i>Runner’s World</i> and the host of <i>NPR’s Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me!</i>, that shares stories, advice, and warnings he’s learned over his long and checkered career on the pavement.<BR> <BR>Just before turning forty, Sagal—brainiac Harvard grad, short bald Jew with a disposition toward heft, and sedentary star of public radio who had exercised sporadically as a teenager—started running seriously. A decade later, what began as a simple mission to keep himself healthy had evolved into fourteen marathon finishes—including one in Boston in 2013, where he crossed the line only moments before two bombs went off—and tens of thousands of miles on roads, sidewalks, paths, and trails all over the United States and the world. Running was an important part of his life, but it wasn’t until he experienced a personal crisis that he realized it had become a mode of survival.<BR> <BR>In these pages, Sagal writes with humor and insight about the moments that have changed the way he sees the relationship between life and sport—from running a charity race in his underwear (in St. Louis, in February) and attempting to “quiet his colon” while taking a lap in his neighborhood to volunteering as a guide for visually impaired runners, causing a scandal by sneaking onto a course midrace, and making his triumphant post-bombing return to Boston in 2014. He also dives deep into the emotional experience of running, body image, the similarities between endurance sports and sadomasochism, the legacy of the sport as passed down from parent and child, and the odd but extraordinary bonds created among strangers and friends sharing the road. As time goes on and his mileage increases, he realizes that the only way to overcome obstacles is simply to keep running through them.<BR> <BR>Candid, clear-eyed, and frequently hilarious, <i>The Incomplete Book of Running</i> is about more than just a man and a sport. It is a field guide to life, a collection of lessons centered around all those things that keep us moving forward: hope, persistence, practice, and love.

<p></p><p><strong><em>NEW YORK TIMES</em> BESTSELLER • "Reveals how we can all surpass our perceived physical limits." —Adam Grant</strong></p><p><em>Limits are an illusion: a revolutionary book that reveals the secrets of accessing your hidden extra potential</em></p><p><strong>Foreword by Malcolm Gladwell</strong></p><p>The capacity to endure is the key trait that underlies great performance in virtually every field—from a 100-meter sprint to a 100-mile ultramarathon, from summiting Everest to acing final exams or completing any difficult project. But what if we all can go farther, push harder, and achieve more than we think we’re capable of?</p><p>Blending cutting-edge science and gripping storytelling in the spirit of Malcolm Gladwell—who contributes the book’s foreword—award-winning journalist Alex Hutchinson reveals that a wave of paradigm-altering research over the past decade suggests the seemingly physical barriers you encounter as set as much by your brain as by your body. This means the mind is the new frontier of endurance—and that the horizons of performance are much more elastic than we once thought.</p><p>But, of course, it’s not “all in your head.” For each of the physical limits that Hutchinson explores—pain, muscle, oxygen, heat, thirst, fuel—he carefully disentangles the delicate interplay of mind and body by telling the riveting stories of men and women who’ve pushed their own limits in extraordinary ways.</p><p>The longtime “Sweat Science” columnist for <em>Outside</em> and <em>Runner’s World</em>, Hutchinson, a former national-team long-distance runner and Cambridge-trained physicist, was one of only two reporters granted access to Nike’s top-secret training project to break the two-hour marathon barrier, an extreme quest he traces throughout the book. But the lessons he draws from shadowing elite athletes and from traveling to high-tech labs around the world are surprisingly universal. Endurance, Hutchinson writes, is “the struggle to continue against a mounting desire to stop”—and we’re always capable of pushing a little farther.</p>

Despite a seemingly endless supply of training programs promising enhanced athletic performance, the same questions inevitably plague strength and conditioning coaches. How do you initiate an athlete’s strength program and progress it over the course of not just a season, but a career? How will you know when it is time to progress, and how can you avoid the consequences of overtraining? How can you develop an athlete’s work capacity while increasing strength, power, and speed without completely sacrificing one quality for another?<br /><br />The answer to all of those questions lies in the systematic approach to program design outlined in The System.<br /><br />Hall of Fame strength coaches Johnny Parker, Al Miller, and Rob Panariello have spent their entire careers studying, testing, and refining the best practices and methods of Soviet-era sports science into a modern, practical approach to strength and conditioning for long-term athletic development. Their system of scientific programming and coaching produced not only powerful and resilient athletes, but also dominant championship teams spanning over three decades.<br /><br />Their distilled lessons and experiences will teach you:<br /><br /> ~ A structured approach to advance a novice athlete to a stronger and more powerful performer<br /><br /> ~ Why simplicity in exercise selection is one key to athletic development<br /><br /> ~ The critical training variables that can make or break progress<br /><br /> ~ How planned—not random—variations in training will yield progressive and sustained physical gains<br /><br /> ~ How to integrate lifting, running, and jumping together to build explosive athletes<br /><br />This book provides more than just a system of principles for optimal strength and conditioning program design. Rather, it provides an education in both the science and the art of coaching and will help you develop what the authors call the “Eye of the Coach” to ensure continued success for both you and your athletes.
