Non Runner Marathon Guide for Women Review & GiveAway!!!
Posted Jun 12 2009 12:00am
I had an opportunity to read the very entertaining but also very insightful book over the past couple of weeks. The author Dawn Dais takes you through her journey for training for her first marathon, told through passage from the journal she kept throughout here experience. She includes helpful advice on training, running gear and finding out your reasons for wanting to run. She even deals with the physical (the pain) and mental aspects of running. The book for me was great she keeps her since of humor throughout which makes the book fun and interesting to read one. So if you are looking for a good running book to read, this is one.
From The Author:
The Nonrunner’s Marathon Guide for Women is meant to be a guide for other couch potatoes who decide that running a marathon sounds like a fantastic idea. The book offers insight into what your training will entail and how to get through the training once it stops sounding like a fantastic idea. Every chapter offers advice in a relatable fashion, from someone (that would be me) who feels your pain (and hears your cussing) and knows you can get to the finish line, even when you barely feel like you can get out of bed. In addition to rock solid advice the book also offers interactive tests, quizzes and journal space so you can keep a detailed account of the hell you endured during your foray into the running world. These sections will be fun to do while you are training, but they will be even more fun to read afterwards, after you wake up from the sweat and Advil induced haze of marathon training.
I enjoyed the book so much I am going to giveaway not 1 but 2 copies of The Non Runner's Marathon Guide for Runners!!!!
