Today we're talking to one of Dr. Pam's running icons: Hal Higdon!
When she first started to think about running marathons, it was Hal's books she turned to for training advice. Hal is a legend in the world of running. He is currently a Contributing Editor for Runner’s World and is the magazine’s longest-lasting writer, having contributed an article to RW’s second issue in 1966.
He also is the author of more than three dozen books, including Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide and the recently published Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Training. In 2003, the American Society of Journalists and Authors awarded Hal its Career Achievement Award, the highest honor given to writer members.
He shares with us how his running journey began, how to start your own running practice and the pros & cons of running with friends.
