About the author (2002)

Jeff was an average teenage runner who kept learning and working harder, until he became an Olympian. He is the author of the best selling running book in North America, "Galloway's Book on Running" and is a Runners World Columnist, as well as an inspirational speaker for more than 200 running and fitness sessions each year. He has worked with over 200,000 average people in training for specific goals and Galloway's quest for an injury-free marathon training program led him to develop group training programs in 1978. Galloway is the designer of the run-walk-run, low mileage marathon training program (Galloway RUN-WALK-RUN method) with over 98% success rate.
