Review

“At the end of every marathon training run, I recite the Penguin mantra: 'The miracle isn't that I finished, it's that I had the courage to start.' I thank John Bingham for bolstering my courage and helping me run, literally, for my life.” —Jessica Stedman Guff, senior producer of ABC-TV's The View

“Jenny Hadfield is an amazing motivator. She makes regular people believe that they can undertake amazing things--and then she's there all the way to encourage them, right down to the finish line. I've never met another coach quite like her.” —Kathy O'Malley, WGN Radio--Chicago talk show host in training for her first marathon
