George Sheehan is an athlete; he set a world record in the mile for his age group. He is a journalist who has written for Runner's World. He is a doctor, a heart specialist. That probably makes him the most qualified man to write about running. His book gives sound advice on all the basics...diet, warm-ups, potential injuries, attitude. For Sheehan, running is more than competition. Whether you are a weekend miler or a seasoned marathon racer, Dr. Sheehan shows how running can help you become the person you want to be.
