    PDF/EPUB Running to the Edge eBook ↠ Running to PDF \ É 11th century.co É running download, edge free, Running to ebok, Running to the Edge eBookThis was a frustrating read for me The book had the potential for greatness Futterman examines what it takes to be a great distance runner why American distance runners were successful in the 1970's declined to a nadir by the early 2000's and are now enjoying a renaissance He uses running coach Bob Larsen as the starting point for his narrative arc The problem is that Futterman basically rehashes a bunch of material from other running books sort of like a mixtape There's bits and pieces from books by Deena Kastor Meb Kehflezighi Frank Shorter Phil Knight etc The narrative doesn't really cohere Futterman spends significant time discussing some obscure distance runners from the San Diego area in the 1970's and then

    PDF/EPUB Running to the Edge eBook ↠ Running to PDF \ É 11th century.co É running download, edge free, Running to ebok, Running to the Edge eBookDrawing a direct line from coaching high school students to Olympic medalists and Boston Marathon winners NYT sports editor Matthew Futterman tells the story of coach Bob Larsen and his efforts to unlock the secrets of running far fast Thanks to a deft fast paced writing style and especially great characterizations that bring unheralded high schoolers to life just as vividly as national champions this is the best book on running since Christopher McDougall's Born to Run While the subject matter here is distance running be prepared to read this in a sprint

    PDF/EPUB Running to the Edge eBook ↠ Running to PDF \ É 11th century.co É running download, edge free, Running to ebok, Running to the Edge eBookLoved this exploration of coach Bob Larsen's training methods So well written it reads like a novel My only uibble and it's a minor one is the author's own story interspersed throughout the book Fortunately those sections are short and don't distract much from the rest of the book which is really interesting My full review

    PDF/EPUB Running to the Edge eBook ↠ Running to PDF \ É 11th century.co É running download, edge free, Running to ebok, Running to the Edge eBookI will give it a 4 but probably a 35 for most people This book is much like a history of coaching running It goes into enough detail on training that most runners will be intrigued while non runners will be bored The cast of characters is vast and motley The truths shared about running are self assuring for me But I am a runner I am not sure this book would be appreciated by a non runner So in that way it has almost too narrow a scope unlike some other running narratives I have read

    PDF/EPUB Running to the Edge eBook ↠ Running to PDF \ É 11th century.co É running download, edge free, Running to ebok, Running to the Edge eBookThis was a very enjoyable book to read I like reading about running coaches and athletes back in the day This book focused on Coach Bob Larson based in San Diego and his running career and then his coaching career It was really neat to see how he recruited Meb Keflezighi for UCLA and ended up working with Coach Joe Vigil and Deena Kastor in the 2000s This book goes hand in hand with Deena Kastor's book Let Your Mind Run I have never been a fan of Nike This book sheds even light on the bad inner workings of Nike and how they treat their athletes Three times Bob Larson went to them to ask for funding for his athletes and all three times they turned him down His runners then went on to win national championships and Olympic medals without the financial backing of Nike or the amount that was a drop in the bucket for a company like Nike This book also explains how Nike treated Meb and his family and why he ended up being s
