Learn to Run
Proper training is the secret. It took time for Hal Higdon to figure out how to train for a marathon, how roadrunning differed significantly from track. “There was not yet a Runner’s World,” he recalls. “There was not yet a ‘Hal Higdon’ to ease my way.” Through trial and error, Hal eventually figured out the combination of long runs and speedwork and (very important) rest that spells success. After finishing as the first American at the Boston Marathon, and winning a world masters marathon title, Hal began to translate his elite-athlete approach into training programs that could benefit any runner, sharing his advice in magazine articles and books, and on the Internet.
