Outstanding listen for all runners from the perspective of one of our greats!

Excellent advice and guidance from Bart Yasso, one of modern running’s true pioneers!
Myself a runner of over 27 years, I thought I’d heard or learned most of this. (Based on the table of contents.)

However, the material was very well organized and fresh! Narrator does a great job as well! Actually reminded me of Bart’s delivery/nature.

Does include PDF w training plans that are referenced.

Enjoy!

Great stories and advice from the one & only Bart!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're looking to take your running to the next level, this book is full of great advice. I love that Bart advocates for running as a life style and not merely as something to check off on a bucket list.

Any additional comments?

Bart has offered so much to the running community over the last 30+ years. Wherever his trails lead him in the future, I'm certain he'll find joy in the journey.

Any additional comments?

Great info for beginners and intermediate runners that are interested in finding out more about various race distances and experiences. Somewhat broad, but is very clear and well written.
