User Review  - Katie Hall - Goodreads

A little repetitive but packed with great information on taking care of your feet before, during, and after events. Used some of the tips in preparing for a recent half-marathon to great results. Read full review

Good reference book for dealing with (ideally, preventing) common foot issues on LONG distance runs, which generally begin after 25 miles... Issues most marathoners don't need to deal with. Read full review
