Synopsis: As a novice 65 years old in his first year of running, our cover runner, John Cahill came to Dr. Miller to learn the physical and mental skills he needed to race a marathon. At 66 in his first marathon he ran a 3:04. At 72, he ran the same marathon in 3:05. As he approached 80, he was still running sub-4hr marathons. Now, in his early 90s, John typically runs a 5K nearly every weekend when he is not traveling around the world. In PROGRAMMED TO RUN, Dr. Miller shares how he developed the concepts that led to John’s success – and countless other runners. Simply put, your running/racing potential is grounded in your biomechanical and attentional skills, which are intimately related. This book is a guide for the self-coached runner -regardless of sex, age, body type, or ethnicity - to assess, refine, and “program” optimal running and racing skills, which, as demonstrated by John, can last a lifetime. "After more than a decade of teaching thousands of runners, my staff, students, and I have concluded that PROGRAMMED TO RUN is the best guide to improving your running and racing available today. It is practical, easily understood, and illustrated with interesting and motivating stories based on Tom’s own running and racing experiences, field research, and anecdotes of how novice runners transformed themselves into masters of their sport.” Curt Munson, the founder of Good Form Running and past president of the National Running Retailers Association (2013). “When this book first came out in 2002, we said in the July/August issue, ‘Miller’s book is one of the most accessible and practical books we’ve seen on those minute and intangible elements that make the difference between good and great performances.’ Programmed to Run contains timeless guidance and should be part of every serious runner’s library today.” Jonathan Beverly, Editor, Running Times magazine (2013). "I grew up practicing the elements of elite running technique because Tom was a frequent instructor at my parents' running store. Our zero drop shoes are designed to be used with the technique described in this book." Golden Harper, founder of Altra Running Shoes. A "Best of 2014" Amazon Editors' Choice!

From the Publisher: ”Dr. Miller has captured the essentials of form and function that will enable the new athlete to dramatically accelerate the learning curve while providing the seasoned veteran with the breakthrough keys to unlock the running potential inside. Following the principles outlined in Programmed to Run is a sure way to rapid and permanent improvement.”

Jeff Arbogast Track and Cross Country Head Coach, Bingham High School (UT) National High School Cross Country Champions – Boys (1995)

"A must read for serious runners and coaches at all levels. Insightful analysis and practical suggestions."

Patrick Shane, Head Women's Cross Country Coach at BYU, current and 2 times women's national champions

"God gave me physical talent, Tom taught me the mental skills to fully utilize that talent."

John Cahill, 3:05 marathon at age 73, 2000 USA T&F 75-79 runner of the year

"Tom's performance programming advice helped me go from a 39 year old couch potato to an elite level cyclist."

Dirk Cowley, 1998 World Masters Stage Race Champion

"Tom's programming principles have been an important part of my long-term success. I use it in my coaching."

Joann Garuccio, 5 times World Master's Age Group Olympic Distance Triathlon Champion

"Tom's programming approach blends biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor learning, and sports psychology into a practical, effective approach for athletes in all sports. A text book for applied sports science."

Dr. Keith Henschen, Director of the Sports Psychology Program at the University of Utah; sports psychologist with USA T&F, US Gymnastics Association, Utah Jazz, University of Utah and Bringham Young Universities athletic teams
