The Golden Age Of Distance Running 

ADR Book  


I have begun writing The American Distance Renaissance: 2006 - 2014. The new book will cover the return to glory of US distance runners after the brief but dismal period at the beginning of the 21st Century. It will also pick up where The Golden Age of Distance Running left off, providing further coverage of the legendary athletes still competing - such as Gebrselassie, Bekele, and Lagat - and introducing new stars like Sammy Wanjiru, David Rudisha, and Mo Farah. I will also continue to post links on the video page so you can watch the world's best athletes in action.

As the project progresses I will post draft copies of the chapters soon after they are written. You can view or download the PDFs at the links below if you want to follow along. Feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
