About the Book

Ever been tempted by running a marathon? Maybe you’re well on your way to conquering the iconic distance. In any case, you’ve come to the right place! Join marathon-pro Vassos Alexander as he shows us why we shouldn’t be afraid of attempting the 26-mile stretch once and for all.

Every marathon runner’s journey is different. You might have caught the bug after experiencing that adrenaline rush of completing your first 5k; it might be a desire to finally cross something off your bucket list; or, perhaps it was a bit of an absentminded afterthought while watching TV, crisps in hand, and a niggling voice saying ‘maybe I could do that’ – it was for Vassos, at least. However far along you are in your journey, How to Run A Marathon shows us that absolutely anyone can take those first steps to defeating the distance. In fact, you’ll probably end up enjoying it a lot more than you think.

Including inspiring interviews with running legends, charming tales of remarkable marathons throughout the world, crucial training and nutrition tips and so much more, Vassos shares all the lessons he’s learnt – from the start line to the finish line.

Funny, candid and motivating, this book will not only help you succeed in marathon running but empower you to complete the distance the way you want to. Whether that’s achieving a particular time, or simply finishing in one piece, How to Run a Marathon will guide you through.
