Train like Olympic marathoner and 2014 Boston Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi

With his historic win at the 2014 Boston Marathon, Meb Keflezighi cemented his legacy as one of the great champions of long-distance running. Runners everywhere wanted to know how someone two weeks away from his 39th birthday, who had only the 15th best time going into the race, could defeat the best field in Boston Marathon history and become the first American man to win the race in 31 years.

Meb For Mortals describes in unprecedented detail how three-time Olympian Keflezighi prepares to take on the best runners in the world. More importantly, the book shows everyday runners how to implement the training, nutritional, and mental principles that have guided him throughout his long career, which in addition to the 2014 Boston win includes an Olympic silver medal and the 2009 New York City Marathon title.

Meb's training, laid out for easy consumption. More of a "this is what I do/what works for me" than a science-based training plan. Good running form drills, and some small anecdotes, but not an exciting book.

Good book by Meb who is one of the best marathoners all over world. Learned a lot from this book, not only about running , but also about life. Thanks Meb!

A good, basic introduction to running from one of the most accomplished American male distance runners today. Probably not of much use to those more experience, though sometimes a review of the basics doesn't hurt.
