This book takes every commonly (and not-so-commonly) asked question about the marathon and organizes them alphabetically by keyword. The topic is then thoroughly addressed in a few information-packed paragraphs. From Aid Station Strategy and Altitude to Bad Weather and Black Toes, to Carbohydrates and Cross Training, topics fall into dozens of general categories including: training; nutrition; rest and recovery; race strategies; equipment; weather; injuries; keeping mentally strong; and travelling to and from the event.

A nice, short, easy read. It was helpful to read this as a supplement or review of more comprehensive and better marathon training guides. Read full review
