So You want to Start Running Again Book Review

So You Want to Start Running Again
My Journey from Tired to 10K
Jeff Stevenson

Jeff takes us through some of his tried and true suggestions from personal experience. He went from being a non-runner to getting back into it with some hints and ideas he found online and from other people. He has taken his experience and the things he has learned and put them into a comprehensive booklet to encourage new runners. 

At age 39 I am in the need of some exercise, and Jeff is showing in this booklet that it is possible to get back out there and run again. Firstly he mentions visiting your Doctor, just for an overall check before you haul off and run a marathon. We aren’t quite as young as our brain would like to think and this way you aren’t pulling muscles and injuring your body.
Set yourself up for success by having attainable goals with your exercise and eating habits.
He mentions joining a running program, so that you have some accountability and people around to motivate you and keep a journal log of your runs. 

Great concise write up by Jeff for those of us who weren’t sure we could get back to it, and can!!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
