This is the book that will take any woman, at any fitness level, into the running lifestyle. Jeff Galloway, a US Olympian in 1972, has helped over 150,000 people make this journey while reducing or eliminating aches, pains, and injuries suffered during most training programs. Jeff developed the Run Walk Run (R) method of training, and together with his wife Barbara, he offers a step-by-step program specifically designed for the needs and concerns of women. Included are lots of tips on staying motivated, building endurance, selecting shoes, stretching, and strengthening, as well as making smart nutrition choices, and much more.
Olympian Jeff Galloway has run for over 50 years and still runs a marathon about every month. He has coached over a million runners to their goals through his retreats (in several locations), clinics at events, individual consultations, running schools, and books. Barbara Galloway has been a serious runner for years and was on the Florida State women's track team. Barbara runs practically every day and has competed in over 30 marathons. Her best 10K time is 41:50, and marathon time 3:18. She has a master's degree in Physical Education and conducts running clinics during running vacation retreats at Lake Tahoe and Athens, Greece.
