“If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run, yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it.”

Whether you’re an experienced runner in a bit of a rut, or a novice in need of encouragement and advice, Williamson is the expert to hold your hand every step of the way.

Available for the first time in the United States, Everyone’s Guide to Distance Running is a comprehensive, all-encompassing, and authoritative reference manual for runners of all stripes. Norrie Williamson guides the runner with practical proven advice not only on training and techniques, but also on the all-important aspect of keeping motivated.

Training • Planning • Racing • Nutrition

Injuries • Clothing and Equipment
