101 Ways to be a Better Runner

What to Expect

The book covers topics as diverse as:

  • Diet and nutrition (tea, vegetables, supplements, and more)
  • Workouts and Racing (pacing for hilly courses, barefoot running for injury prevention, when to run strides, etc.)
  • Recovery (compression socks, sleep, booze, plus more good stuff)
  • Too much more to list!

101 Simple Ways to be a Better Runner isn’t an academic book that’s 600 pages long. I found a LOT of those books on the bookshelves when I researched what was available.

Instead, this is your actionable guide to improving your running, one small change at a time. Each chapter has suggestions on how to improve your training, diet, and recovery to maximize your performances and just feel better on every single run. Isn’t that what we all want?

So if you’re looking for an in-depth analysis of the research supporting minimalist running shoes and the vertical loading rates of barefoot runners – this book isn’t for you. If you want to learn how insulin release after a high-carbohydrate meal triggers fat storage and how the Paleo diet prevents this – this book isn’t for you.

The fine print and footnotes of those detailed analyses are important but they’re not the focus of this book.

Rather than getting lost in the science, saying “that’s nice” and shutting off your Kindle, this book is intended to give you specific strategies in an easy to understand format. Then you’ll be able to take action and improve your running.

Need to change up your long run and don’t know what to do? I know plenty.

Curious about the best ways to improve your running form? No problem.

Want a new way to set goals? I’ve got two for you!

Don’t have a Kindle? No problem – just download the book now as a PDF.
