Overview

With his historic win at the 2014 Boston Marathon, Meb Keflezighi cemented his legacy as one of the great champions of long-distance running. Runners everywhere wanted to know how someone two weeks away from his 39th birthday, who had only the 15th best time going into the race, could defeat the best field in Boston Marathon history and become the first American man to win the race in 31 years.

"Meb For Mortals" describes in unprecedented detail how three-time Olympian Keflezighi prepares to take on the best runners in the world. More important, the book shows everyday runners how to implement the training, nutritional, and mental principles that have guided him throughout his long career, which in addition to the 2014 Boston win includes an Olympic silver medal and the 2009 New York City Marathon title.

Keflezighi's book is a perfect accessory for marathon training. Keflezighi, the winner of the 2014 Boston Marathon, covers topics both physical and psychological, writing that “everything I've achieved physically in running started psychologically with the thought, ‘I want to do this.' " This thorough training guide covers every bit of the expected subject matter: physical drills (including photos to show form), diet, strength training (including a five-minute do-anywhere routine), and cross-training. Keflezighi even includes his personal training schedules four weeks prior to running a 5K, 10K, half-marathon, or marathon. He also addresses issues like good shoe selection, wearing sunglasses on race day, and the key role that recovery plays in a solid running regimen. Each section begins with inspirational full-page photos of Keflezighi, and the chapters are clearly organized, addressing basic questions and concluding with helpful do's and don'ts. The format is clean and the writing is simple and strong, all making this book a valuable tool for anyone with their sights set on running a marathon. (Apr.)
