Having a running coach can be one of the most satisfying relationships possible. Even a middling runner with modest aspirations can benefit from the insights and accountability of coaching.

Good coaches aren’t easy to find, though, and one of the best substitutes might be a newly released book, “The Science of Running: Analyze Your Technique, Prevent Injury, Revolutionize Your Training.” The book is written by a physical therapist who specializes in sports injuries and recovery, Chris Napier.
