If you’d like to get into running, and think that maybe the barriers are too great, this is the book for you.

Kelly Starrett approaches running less from an “eye of the tiger” motivational approach, and more from a physiotherapy angle.

The first couple of chapters of the book are explanatory of his philosophy, the key component of which being:

Routine maintenance on your personal running machine (i.e., your body) can be and should be performed by you.

The second (and largest) part of the book is given to his “12 Standards of Maintenance for Running“. These range from neutral feet and flat shoes, to ankle, knee, and hip mobilization exercises, to good squatting technique, and more.

After that, we have photographs and explanations of maintenance exercises that are functional for running.

The fourth and final part of the book is about dealing with injuries or medical issues that you might have.

And if you think you’re too old for it? In Starrett’s own words:

❝Problems are going to keep coming. Each one is a gift wanting to be opened—some new area of performance you didn’t know you had, or some new efficiency to be gained. The 90- to 95-year-old division of the Masters Track and Field Nationals awaits. A Lifelong commitment to solving each problem that creeps up is the ticket.

In short: this is the book that can get you back out doing what you perhaps thought you’d left behind you, and/or open a whole new chapter in your life.
