Run Strong Stay Hungry by Jonathan BeverlyBoulder, CO, USA — November 28, 2017 — In his brilliant new book, Run Strong, Stay Hungry, running journalist Jonathan Beverly reveals the secrets of veteran runners who are still racing fast and loving the sport decades after they got their start. Beverly taps 50 lifetime runners—from America’s elite to consistent local competitors—to reveal the 9 keys to run strong and stay fast. Run Strong, Stay Hungry is now available in bookstores, running shops, and online. See previews at velopress.com/strong.

Drawing from lessons learned over their 4 million lifetime running miles, Beverly finds that these lifetime competitors offer dozens of specific, creative strategies and solutions runners can try right now. Runners will find inspiration and guidance to power up their running with the best ways to train, race, recover, avoid injuries, and stay motivated. They will tap into the powerful habits and mind-sets formed over 1,000 marathons, hundreds of major race wins, 40 Olympic Games, and dozens of American and world records.

Run Strong, Stay Hungry explores 9 ways any runner can enjoy a lifelong, healthy running career as well as boost enjoyment of running and improve race performance. These keys will not only keep runners on their feet, but they will also open up new opportunities and challenges to keep them engaged with the sport—whether they are winning races or finishing in the middle of the pack, cranking out 100-mile weeks or squeezing miles into a busy schedule. Beverly busts myths that have held masters runners back and gives direction to help both beginning runners and those who have run for decades. Runners can get a 20-year head start on obstacle-proofing their racing—or reboot their running career—with this insightful new guide for anyone who loves to run.
