Running books have been written by everyone from professional athletes to amateur runners. However, the best running books are those written by a medical professional who can help runners avoid the one word they dread the most: injury.
As a devoted runner himself, Dr. Smith wrote the book, Run Healthy, Run Strong, to help fellow runners remain active, without causing harm to their bodies. Unfortunately, many people believe that running is as simple as lacing up a pair of tennis shoes and taking off.
