    Fast Track with a nice change to my normal reading habits. The book was gifted to me by a coach and I was excited to read it. The book goes into the life of Suzy Hamilton, a famous short/middle distance runner, including what it was like for her to train and the pressures she went through when everyone expected so much for her. A large portion of the book speaks about nutrition as she stresses the sad reality of eating disorders among woman in the world of running. The book is written in a very Fast Track with a nice change to my normal reading habits. The book was gifted to me by a coach and I was excited to read it.

A large portion of the book speaks about nutrition as she stresses the sad reality of eating disorders among woman in the world of running. The book is written in a very down to earth manner and I felt as if she were speaking to me directly, something you don't always find with these sorts of books. I would recommend this book to any girl who wants to get into running but doesn't know much about it, but also experienced runners who want to add to their success. I learned so much information that I am planning on rereading portions of it in order to fully absorb it and I refer often to it. Great book, read it, and you'll be happy you did!

    Great book if you want to get technical. It offers some quality training advice, but where the book shines is in its nutrition content. A warning, though... unless you're a nerd about nutrition for runners/athletes, this is going to be a bit boring. I love learning about the intricate details of what your body needs during certain training cycles, so it worked for me. I'll probably read it again just to make sure I digest all of it.

    It was a little bit basic but did have some things re:charting and some training plans I really liked so it's more of a "grazer" than a thorough read but still helpful.
