As entrepreneur Sage started his company, Vo2Max Productions LLC, which he uses as a platform to help launch his recently published book, Running for the Hansons (available on amazon.com). Sage shares his story about the team aspect and groups of running. Great read for all levels of runners from weekend warriors to elites.
About the book – Sage Canaday, a former athlete at Cornell University and current member of the Hansons-Brooks Olympic Development Program, has recently published a book recounting his training with the team made famous by 2008 Olympic Marathoner Brian Sell and 2011 Boston Marathon 2nd Place Finisher Desiree Davilla. The book provides a framework for how the team operates, including training, racing, and living a lifestyle centered around running. Along the way, Sage discusses how he became a member of the program, profiles his teammates and team founders Kevin and Keith Hanson, and gives unparalleled insight into the unrelenting training it takes to compete at the highest levels of the sport. The reader learns about the elations, the disappointments and the re-discoveries of what it takes to be an elite, American distance runner.
Running For The Hansons speaks to runners of all levels and abilities and fans of sport in general. It provides motivation to those looking to improve their times and training tips for those elite runners hoping to jump to the upper echelon of competition. The book even includes a complete 3 month training log that resulted in a 2:16 Boston Marathon performance, an invaluable resource. Running For The Hansons is sure to resonate with a wide audience, with early reviews calling the book “an excellent read for anyone who wants to know what it takes to keep the dream going” (http://www.writingaboutrunning.com/) with Sage being “a narrator to whom readers can relate, even if their race times are nowhere near Canaday’s” (http://themiddlemiles.blogspot.com).
