Praise for The Competitive Edge
"We were impressed by this book when it first came out in 1984. Never before had such a combination of credentials been brought to bear on the subject: the mental side of distance running. Rich Elliott had been a national-class distance runner, was a successful coach, had made a comprehenseive study of the psychology of sport, and—wonder of wonders—he could write . . . with clarity, intelligence, and imagination."

"It's still the best book I've ever seen for practical psychology for distance runners."
Larry Wieczorek, head track and cross country coach, University of Iowa
" . . . required reading for runners of all ages and ability levels."
Gary Wieneke, former University of Illinois cross country and track coach
