Unorthodox training secrets that would lead American runners to breakthroughs never imagined Futterman interweaves the dramatic stories of Larsen's runners with a fascinating discourse on the science behind human running as well as a personal running narrative that follows Futterman's own checkered love affair with the sport The result is a narrative that will speak.
