SPORTS TRAINING & COACHING. Jeff Galloway is a world-class distance runner and author of the best-selling Galloway's Book on Running. Galloway, along with Bill Rogers and Frank Shorter, was at the forefront of the running revolution of the '80s. For over 20 years, Jeff has toured the country, giving running workshops, hosting races, and lecturing to runners. About five years ago he discovered a unique way of training that allowed just about anyone to run a marathon. The secret: walk breaks. Marathons have surged in popularity in the last five years. And runners these days are different from runners in the '80s and early '90s: they want to finish a marathon. They are not obsessed (as were earlier runners) with high performance. They are having fun. This is Jeff's new book for 21st century marathoners. It has programs and advice for all levels of runners, and will show you how to run a marathon without injuring yourself or getting a divorce.
