"Especially in tough economic times, running offers an affordable and positive way to relieve stress and gain a sense of accomplishment. Marathons and - more than ever - half-marathons are the ultimate achievement for runners and have experienced an unprecedented boom in the last several years. New hunger for reliable information on marathon and half-marathon training, as well as new technologies that have revolutionized ordinary people's ability to train intelligently, means the time is right for a new edition of longtime "Runner's World" contributor Hal Higdon's classic guide to taking the guesswork out of preparing for a marathon, whether it is a reader's first or fiftieth. Since its original publication in 1993, Higdon's definitive manual has sold over a quarter of a million copies through all channels. The book is such a consistent seller for many reasons, but above and beyond all the others is this one: It works. At the core of the book remains Higdon's clear and essential information on training, injury prevention, and nutrition. With more than 25 per cent new material, this fourth edition of a running classic will be a must-own for both longtime runners and those new to the sport." --Publishers description

4:09:43 : Boston 2013 through the eyes of the runners by Hal Higdon( Book )

4:09:43, takes its title from the time into the 2013 Boston Marathon when two bombs exploded and is a compilation of accounts provided by those taking part. It focuses on the accounts of 75 runners, collected through social media: blogs posted online, stories offered on Facebook and e-mails sent to the author. The book presents these stories, condensing and integrating them into a smooth-flowing narrative that begins with runners boarding the buses at Boston Common, continues with the wait at the Athletes' Village in Hopkinton and flows through eight separate towns. The story does not end until the 23,000 participants encounter the terror on Boylston Street. "These are not 75 separate stories," says the author. "This is one story told as it might have been by a single runner with 75 pairs of eyes."
