Review quote

Chi Marathon emphasizes the mental and physical components of running and encourages runners to be aware of how their bodies are responding during a run. The tone of the book is positive, and it supports the idea that proper technique is the key to pain-free running. The Dreyers expertly detail how to prepare for a race many runners are likely to find value in the Dreyers program. "--Booklist"
