What people are saying…

“I am a marathon runner!!! I ran my first marathon a couple of weeks back after reading your guide to running a marathon. I really drew on the motivational parts during the run. When I got to around the 35 km mark, I was thankful to have the mental attitude to finish. The conditions were tough but I made it in 4 hrs 15. Thanks again for helping me through my first marathon.”

“I purchased the marathon ebook last winter and my husband and I finished our first marathon in San Diego this past weekend. We had the best time and felt very prepared in large part due to your book. Thanks so much!”
