The Runner’s Brain Endorsements


“The Runner’s Brain is full of solid science, proven mental strategies, inspiring and funny stories, tips and thoughts from some of the greatest brains in running, and is written in a down-to-earth, practical and approachable style. Any runner looking to maximize his or her performance and get the most out of every run can benefit from Dr. Brown’s wisdom.”
Meb Keflezighi, from his foreword

“It turns out that running well isn’t just about legs and hearts and lungs. It’s also about what’s going on inside your head…. [The Runner’s Brain] offers strategies on how to deal with the joy, pain and boredom of running, as well as a seven-step training program for your noggin.”
Austin American-Statesman

“The book gives clear cut strategies for developing this type of mental strength and draws upon relevant scientific research to support the brain-body connection. Other well-known runners, like Dean Karnazes, Katherine Switzer, and Meb Keflezighi also speak to the importance of developing a strong mind and body together. What is also encouraging to see is the author’s 7- Step Fit Brain Training plan is something anyone can utilize.”
Huffington Post

The Runner’s Brain is a well written book that covers topics that aren’t always covered very thoroughly in other places.  Dr. Brown does a great job of explaining these topics.”

“I strongly encourage any runner to read this book and, maybe especially new runners. Although I found a wealth of pertinent information for myself, I found even more great advice and knowledge for the newbie. I wish I had read this 10 years ago!”
