Amanda Brooks started RunToTheFinish.com in 2007 as a way to connect with fellow runners.Over time it transitioned in to a place for runners to find highly researched articles and run coaching, while on social media she connects with runners daily over their love and laughter around their chosen love of sweat. Now RTTF has reached over 12 million runners and Amanda’s running love only continues to grow.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Run to the Finish is not your typical running book. While it’s filled with useful strategic training advice and unique tips, at its core, it’s about learning to love the run you’ve got without comparing yourself to other runners.
Mixing both humor and helpful advice, Brooks delivers a down-to-earth, inspiring guide filled
with all the tips and secrets you need to have the best run for you, such as:
- dynamic warmups and the power of gratitude miles
- understanding the difference between discomfort and pain
- mastering the mental side of running
- treating the most common injuries

Hi Amanda – I just wanted to send you a HUGE THANK YOU for writing Run to the Finish. I downloaded it about teo days ago and I can’t stop reading it. Nearly everything is resonating with me – I have highlighted so many things; I have taken screenshots of pages and sent them to my 14-year-old daughter since she just started high school track this week; and I can’t stop telling everyone about it. Hoping to meet you in DC on March 16. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
“Suddenly, when the run itself is the goal, there are no more bad runs. Suddenly it doesn’t matter if we don’t finish within our goal time—or don’t finish at all. What matters is that we tried, that we enjoyed the process. What matters is that we got out there.” ― John Bingham, No Need for Speed: A Beginner’s Guide to the Joy of Running
“We all have our Achilles heel–an area of weakness that often gets injured or threatens injury. For me, my hips (weakness) and calves (tightness) are my areas of concern. For my training partner, it’s his plantar fascia. I suspect that you have a problem area as well. Develop focused injury-proofing for that area, and don’t let up. Don’t work on it only when you’re hurting. Work on it year-round.”– Greg McMillan
