From the Publisher:

"Sandrock understands the hard road of distance running because he has run the monsters. What Hemingway was for the bullfight, Rock is for the running race. No one writes about this sport as well."

C. Mark Wetmore; Head track coach, University of Colorado

"Mike Sandrock's Running Tough illustrates beautifully that, when it comes to training, there are many roads to Rome. What shines through the pages of diverse workouts and inspirational stories is each athlete’s love of the sport, innovative spirit and capacity for hard work. A training treasure for the running enthusiast."

Lorraine Moller, Four time Olympic Marathoner, 1992 Olympic Bronze Medallist, Masters World Records in 5K and 4 mile (1995)
