Avid runners often define their best runs in terms of breaking records and conquering distances, but they intuitively know that this only begins to describe their experiences. Through more than 40 years of training and competing, Joe Henderson has gained an understanding of what really defines the best running experiences and has developed techniques to achieve them.

Henderson-America's premier running writer-has produced perhaps his finest work in Best Runs . He shares his experiences and expertise, offering advice on how you can enhance your running and reap rewards beyond improved running times and race results.
