A new book about HS runners coming out

Postby Guest » Sun Apr 27, 2003 5:05 am

I found this on Dyestat and thought that people here may find it of interest.

A book created by John Nepolitan is close to being sent to the publisher to be printed. You can read about all the runners who have been selected to submit profiles. and at joffroi's website u can see a sample one. looks to be a book that is gonna go quickly when it comes out. Great Work John.

That excerpt looks very good. Suggestions- I would add the runner's CURRENT bests, achievements, etc.. While us hardercore geeks know who Marius et al are, many or most HS kids may not. I would also like to see samples from the great school programs like Mead and Mt. View.

It's also interesting that Marius improved from 4:15 (1500) to 4:09 (1600) his senior year.

Is this a T&FN book? Will it be sold through them does anybody know? I never see too many pure track books at the major book stores

That ought to sell well in San Francisco!

Oh, wait, maybe the thread was actually supposed to be titled "A new book coming out about HS runners"

I may be able to dig up a copy I have of Mead's training in winter/early spring '97.
