Publisher's Summary

This book is the result of 20 years of running, racing, and qualifying for the Boston Marathon as an average amateur athlete. In MarathonBQ, I share the accumulated knowledge of training and qualifying for Boston along with a simple training plan to get you there. 

We love our sport. We want to qualify and compete at Boston, but we have full-time jobs, families, and limited time to train. How do we boil down the qualification campaign to its basic elements? How do we create a plan specifically for qualifying by doing the work required in the amount of time available? 

You'll gain insight into the plan and methodology I used to take 45+ minutes off my marathon PR. I cut out all the fluff and confusion and present you with a simple, realistic, and straightforward methodology to get your time. 

If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, listen on.... 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Practical How-to Guide to Qualify Efficiently for Boston!

I recommend this book for anyone who wants a straightforward guide to qualifying for the Boston Marathon.

Is it easy? No.
Is it guaranteed? No.
Will you work more consistently and harder than you have in other training plans? Yes.
Can you achieve your dream if you do the work? Absolutely!

This is one of the best books I have read about how to structure a solid training plan to put you in the best position to run a fast marathon. I like how efficient the plan is and how Chris has structured the book to make it a simple reference guide. I will listen to this book again for information and motivation.

Great job, Chris!
