I have always said that I should do more strength training, but it wasn't until I started trying this book that I really realized how much it can help me. I started this book before I was back to running, and I believe without a shadow of a doubt that it has had a big impact on my running now. I am stronger, recover easier and have less soreness overall." -- LovingontheRun.com
