From the lead author of Build Your Running Body ("the best running book ever"-- Runner's World founder Bob Anderson), a one-of-a-kind guide for everyone who wants to run but feels they can't

As a drug-addled young man, Pete Magill once found himself in the ER, with his body telling him to give up . Taking up running seemed impossible--but he willed himself to do it anyway.

Magill went on to become one of the fastest masters runners ever, and a sought-after coach. Over a glowing (albeit hard-won) career, he has heard every excuse people use to stop running or never start--from achy knees and sore ankles, to advanced age and arthritis, to too many cigarettes or years on the couch.

In every case, Magill's best advice is to do what he did: Run anyway--at a pace and mileage that work. Through inspiration, science, and anecdote, Magill gets runners out the door; through personal action plans, he sets them on the right path; and through the best exercises to protect and rehabilitate the body, he keeps them going--showing a way forward for new and sidelined runners who haven't before realized how close they are to fun and pain-free
