About The Book

Scott Douglas offers the advice he’s gleaned from three decades of running, from twenty years as a running writer, and from the deep connections he’s made with top runners and coaches around the country and around the world. The 250 tips offered here are the next best thing to having a personal coach or an experienced running partner. Douglas includes tips for increasing your daily, weekly, and yearly mileage; advice on increasing your speed and racing faster; useful knowledge on how to stay injury-free and be a healthy runner; and much more.

The range of tips means there’s something for any runner—someone looking to start running to get in shape, a competitive high school or college runner, an athlete looking to move into running, or an experienced runner looking to improve his or her time in an up- coming marathon. You have the questions: What running apparel is best? What kind of gear do you need to run in the rain or snow? How do you find time in a busy schedule to run? How can you set and achieve meaningful goals? Douglas has the answers.

In a hardcover edition handsome enough to give as a gift, The Little Red Book of Running is more than a handbook—it’s a runner’s new best friend.
