My First 100 Marathons by Jeff Horowitz
Book DescriptionJeffrey Horowitz didn t expect to fall in love with marathoning, but that s just what happened. He had never run a race, was not on his high school track team, and had never owned a pair of running shoes. Then, in 1985, he went out for a run and it changed his life. Eighteen years later he completed his one-hundredth marathon. This book is Jeff s story, but it is also the story of everyone who loves to run. It includes his training, his injuries, his best times, his joys, his friends, his failures. In some ways, it s an unusual story. How many other runners have finished 100 marathons? In other ways, it is the story of every runner who has found joy and satisfaction in a training routine, in reaching a goal, or in finishing a race.

Quick Strength for Runners, Paperback (December 2013)
Strength training is crucial for better running and injury prevention. But it's difficult to know which strength exercises work best for runners or to get motivated to hit the gym. In this book, the author simplifies strength training into just two 20-minute workouts per week, with no gym or pricey equipment required.
Smart Marathon Training, Paperback (November 2011)» View all books by Jeff Horowitz
Through a sensible, minimalist approach, this title maps out a healthier, more economical approach to training, emphasising quality over quantity. Rather than wasting time and energy on junk miles, it pares down training to three essential runs per week, mixing in core work, strength training, and cycling.
