October 23rd | DEBS’ Book Club
October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for an in-person session with NYRR Coach & Author, GORDON BAKOULIS, to discuss one of her books: "How to Train for and Run Your Best Marathon" AND to receive some last minute guidance for the upcoming NYC Marathon!
GORDON BAKOULIS is an RRCA-certified running coach and has coached runners at all levels since 1985, working with NYRR, Athena New York, Craftsbury Running Camp, Maine Running Camp, and others. Gordon qualified for the U.S. Olympic marathon trials in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004 and was a finalist in the 1992 U.S. Olympic 10,000m trials. She has represented the U.S. internationally at the 10K, half-marathon, and marathon distances, and has run a 1:11 half-marathon and a 2:33 marathon. Gordon has run more than 35 marathons (including eight New York City Marathons) and countless races at other distances.
Gordon's book is designed to get you to the starting line of a marathon being well informed, uninjured and ready to have a safe and enjoyable race! It offers a wealth of information from a National Class Marathoner.
"This is an excellent running book. It has a tremendous amount of information on nutrition, cross training, speed work and a very easily tolerated training schedule for preparation for a marathon. I have used this book for years, and it still seems to work."
"You probably know there are a lot of "how to" guides out there. This one isn't for everyone. But if you're looking for more than just a finisher's medal, Bloch offers you the insight of her years of championship experience. Even beginners will find useful training schedules... and the tips here will help anyone improve their finish."
"I especially enjoyed that the first chapter included testimonials from various ordinary people about their first marathon. Also there is a countdown chapter, telling you what to do in the month, weeks, days, and last day before the marathon; as well as a whole chapter dedicated to the race itself."
