An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

Anyone who is, or is thinking of becoming, an endurance athlete should listen to this book. It is incredibly informative and helpful. Especially to those pursuing a vegan athletic lifestyle and/or battling addiction or have struggled with it.

As a fan of running and Runner's World magazine I was familiar with Bart Yasso and I have wanted to read his book since I learned he wrote one. It is great for runners. Full of amazing running stories and ideas for great races. It also includes training tips (of course). I definitely recommend it for anyone, but especially runners.
