Beginner's Running Guide
Hal Higdon’s Beginning Runner’s Guide is a compact booklet (32 pages in its print edition) that tells you all you need to know about starting to run. Everything from what clothes to wear to what steps to take to how to enter your first 5-K. Beginning Runner’s Guide will not tell you how to train for a marathon, but if you follow its simple instructions, it will get you to the point where you can at least consider that idea.
