Review

A surprising book! Surprised to learn more about runners I competed against. Surprised to learn more about races I was in. No surprise - this is a book for runners by a runner who can really write. --Alberto Salazar

Remembering Preis one of the best, most powerful pieces of writing I have ever read. Your short declarative sentences hit like hammers. You wrote as Pre ran. I can imagine no other writer who could have told his story as well. Runners everywhere probably wish you had written more. I certainly do. --Jeff Johnson, Nikes first employee

If you didn't know from whence the inspiration for the growth and popularity of running came, you will after reading, When Running Was Young and So Were We.Stories to motivate and entertain while keeping all of us young. --Joan Benoit

From the Back Cover

For many years Jack Welch wrote for "Running" magazine and "Track & Field News," chronicling the extraordinary developments of running during the 1970s, 80s and 90s. "When Running Was Young and So Were We" is based on his columns from that period and tells how running became a way of life for millions. It's a book about excellence, inspiration and greatness--not just what it takes to cross the finish line first, but the lessons learned along the way. It's a sports book that offers an up-close-and-personal look at Olympic greats, big races, and long runs. It's a training book that outlines many of the techniques and strategies that make a winner, on and off the field of competition. And it's a celebration of the human spirit that examines what happens when both great athletes and keen amateurs are driven to challenge their own personal limits.
What do greats like Alberto Salazar, Joan Benoit, Dick Beardsley, Mary Decker and Steve Prefontaine all have in common? Read their stories and be inspired!
