Marathoning from A to Z : Over 400 Ways to Run Better, Faster and Smarter
This book takes every commonly (and not-so-commonly) asked question about the marathon and organizes them alphabetically by keyword. The topic is then thoroughly addressed in a few information-packed paragraphs. From "Aid Station Strategy" and "Altitude" to "Bad Weather" and "Black Toes", to "Carbohydrates" and "Cross Training", topics fall into dozens of general categories including: training; nutrition; rest and recovery; race strategies; equipment; weather; injuries; keeping mentally strong; and travelling to and from the event.
