Publisher's Summary

The first running book by a leading pioneering running doctor and athlete, creator of the Air Force's Efficient Running program - the result of more than three decades of study, practice, and science that shows us in clearly illustrated and accessible text how easy it is to run efficiently and injury-free, whether you're in your 20s, 60s, or 70s - for beginning runners and experienced marathoners.

In Run for Your Life, Dr. Mark Cucuzzella explains the simple mechanics of how our bodies have evolved and adapted to run. Despite our natural ability and our human need to run, each year more than half of all runners suffer injuries. Pain and discouragement inevitably follow. Cucuzzella's book outlines the proven, practical techniques to avoid injury and reach the goal of personal fitness and overall health.   

His book - the first running book to be written by a professor of medicine with the credibility of the Air Force behind him - gives us a straightforward, easy-to-follow look at the anatomy, biomechanics, nutrition, and/or clinical medicine with clear drawings and black-and-white photographs. The audiobook provides illustrated exercises (available on the bonus PDF) designed to teach healthy running, along with simple progressions, a weekly/monthly schedule detailing common mistakes, and cautions that allow the listener to tailor the training regime to individual needs and abilities.  

Mark Cucuzzella will donate his proceeds to support his community work through his nonprofit organization, Eastern Area Health Education Center/Freedoms Run. Learn more here: http://freedomsrun.org/CommunityGrant.aspx.

Includes a bonus PDF with graphs, diagrams, training plans, and illustrations.

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

Critic Reviews

“A fantastic repositioning of how to run, and of what makes running fun and healthy (they can be one and the same). True to the Hippocratic oath, Dr. Mark Cucuzzella takes back the paradigm of running that has been fostered by major shoe companies and mass media, and he recalibrates it with the runner’s best interests at heart.” (Joe Puleo, Coach of the Marine Corps Running Team and author of Running Anatomy)

“The principles outlined in this book were transformational. Not only did I run faster and better, but I was able to complete my third marathon pain-free. Most important, I felt the joy of running, and that's the type of joy anyone who runs - either around the block or 100 miles - should have the chance to feel. Reading Dr. Cucuzzella's book will help you get there.” (Mike Plunkett, MisFits Columnist, The Washington Post)

“Dr. Cucuzzella has long been a leading mind when it comes to healthy running and healthy living. He understands the comprehensive physiology behind the simple act of running, but he has also mastered the art of applying both science and passion to help runners understand how to maximize their strength, endurance, fitness, and enjoyment in a healthy, sustainable way. He’s an authentic source of information and enthusiasm amid a turbulent sea of flashy trends and biased product marketers. I expect Run for Your Life to become one of the leading running books of this era and to serve as a guiding light to runners of all abilities.” (Brian Metzler, Former Editor-in-Chief, Competitor magazine; Founding Editor, Trail Runner magazine; co-author of Natural Running and Run Like a Champion)
