Run to the Finish, by Amanda Brooks
Oct 03, 2020

From basic equipment and training principles to the importance of psychology and dreaming “just big enough”, Run to the Finish by Amanda Brooks, is an overview of everything running. It covers a wide range of topics in an easy to understand way that is accessible to new runners, but provides information that is also good for runners who are not new to the sport and want to improve. It was specifically written for the "middle of the pack" who find that some of the other books out there are a little intimidating because they seem to speak to a more elite group.

The book is divided into 11 chapters:

1.     You are a runner

2.     Motivation beyond the clock

3.     Breaking down discomfort VS pain

4.     Don’t play the injury game

5.     Dreaming just big enough

6.     The perfect training plan

7.     What is solid training?

8.     Managing runger to avoid hangry times

9.     Understanding the final 10%

10.  Owning race day

11.  Developing a lasting PR

The author, Amanda Brooks, has been a runner, running coach, and personal trainer for several years. She holds a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, and has been featured in many running magazines as well as women’s health and fitness forums. Amanda is also the author of the successful RunToTheFinish.com website.
