gal pal runner friends with her book, The Athlete’s Pocket Guide to Yoga:

wouldn’t benefit from the balance and flexibility that result from a disciplined
yoga practice – yet how many of us honestly have the time to incorporate
regular yoga classes into our training routines?

specifically at runners, cyclists and triathletes. As an active multi-sport
athlete herself, Rountree understands the unique ways in which a runner’s body

challenges. The well-written and clearly-illustrated book is easy to tote to
your workout room or to pack in a travel bag for enhanced fitness on-the-go.
