Journey to Walking 26.2—Resources

**This post contains affiliate links.

Here are some great resources for inspiration and information about walking or running long distances.  Remember that information for runners can also be used by walkers.  First are two books by John Bingham--No Need for Speed: A Beginner's Guide to the Joy of Running and The Courage To Start: A Guide To Running for Your Life are great books for those of us who are walkers or slow runners.

Women's Running is a great magazine that provides information about races, training, nutrition and gear.

Runner's World is a magazine that is for pretty hard-core runners, but I find it to have really useful information for me as a walker. This particular issue has a shoe buyer's guide, an 8-week training schedule for a 10K, information about sunglasses and other gear.

The Complete Guide to Marathon Walking is a really helpful resource if you're planning to train for a full marathon. It has training schedules, information about proper nutrition and hydration, and lots more.  This has been my go-to book when training for a full marathon.

And finally, Nancy Clark's Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions is great because it offers information about what to eat leading up to a marathon and food tips for how to eat all the time as an athlete.
