"Running For The Hansons," offers the reader a glimpse of what it is like to be a professional distance runner, to run in a major sponsor's shoes, and to live a lifestyle structured around training and racing. It is a first-hand, exclusive account that delves into the elations, the disappointments and the re-discoveries of what it takes to be an elite, American distance runner. The story provides a framework of The Hansons-Brooks Distance Project, a post-collegiate marathon-focused training group based in Michigan that was made famous by the progression of 2008 US Olympian Brian Sell. Runners of all ages and abilities will quickly recognize that the thought processes of such athletes mentioned in the story can be applied to their own running. The mega-mileage, 140-mile weeks and puke-including workouts and races that are discussed in the book are relative extensions from the challenges that any high school team, college cross-country team or marathon-training group must learn to conquer together. As a collective whole, the sacrifice and commitment of each individual yields a camaraderie, synergy and motivation for the entire group to break through pre-conceived barriers (which are the very efforts demanded to achieve new personal bests!) This is a story about dreaming big, following your heart and taking risks. It is a story of triumphs, disappointments, and how one may find meaning and purpose in life through a "simple" passion for running. Included in the contents are informative sections about training, racing, and what it takes to become one of the best marathon runners in the country.The enclosed DVD features separate video clips on completing running specific drills, selecting proper training shoes, content relating to chapters within the book, as well as extra bonus footage of the Hansons-Brooks team.

Book Description Do you dream of running a great marathon, but your busy life and obligations make the training commitments difficult? Do you suffer from injuries that put you on the sidelines when you desire to race? The 20-week Simple Marathon Training system can prepare you for marathon success. With a modern outlook on training schedules, innovative exercises for injury prevention and maximizing time spent training, the Simple Marathon Training system prepares you to toe the line with the confidence to run your best marathon. The Simple Marathon Training system has improved marathon times and the overall experience for many busy adult runners with hectic lives. This system works. It will for you, too. Included in Simple Marathon Training is a day-by-day schedule which includes running assignments as well as the crucial element missing from most training plans: core strength, hip strength and hip mobility exercises. You don't have to look at a sequence of photos in the book to learn these routines, rather, you will be able to watch all these strength and mobility videos online, for free. The incorporation of training videos into a sound marathon training program makes Simple Marathon a one of a kind system; a book that will help any committed athlete run a great marathon. The Geek Out section at the back of the book is another unique aspect of Simple Marathon Training. The Geek Outs are written by world-renowned physiologists and professional marathoners as well as Coach Jay's clients who have been using the system for several years to run PRs. You'll learn why it's best to do your hardest strength and mobility work on the same day as your workouts and long runs. You'll learn the correct method for fueling during a marathon. Information on imagery leading up to the race and mental skills to use during race day are just some of the topics in the Geek Out section. The bottom line is, if you're a busy adult with a hectic life, Simple Marathon Training is the right training book for you. "Jay's training system works beautifully for runners who aim for excellence in every area of their lives-athletically, personally and professionally. He understands that we're busy but still want to run our best; he's helped me do just that." Cindy Kuzma, Freelance health and fitness writer and contributing editor to Runner's World Magazine
