Runner's World Complete Book of Women's Running by Runner's World
Over the last four years, 75 percent of the new subscribers to Runner's World magazine, America's largest running magazine, have been women. The 1998 San Diego Rock 'n Roll Marathon was the first where more women participated than men. A significant number of women across the country identify themselves as regular runners. These statistics are evidence of a major boom in the popularity of running - a boom fuelled by women runners. In response, Dagny Scott teamed up with the experts at Runner's World magazine to create a guide specifically aimed at this large and growing segment of the running world. More than one hundred experts were interviewed on the unique problems and challenges women face when running, including clothing, injuries common to women, running during pregnancy and menopause, safety, and nutrition. With clear photographs, running sidebars and testimonials from women runners of all ages and abilities, the Runner's World Complete Book Of Women's Running provides the most up-to-date practical advice for women runners of all levels.
