MacKenzie has opened doors to coaches and runners, offering proven solutions to a myriad of problems that persistently vex runners of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Dean Karnazes, ultrarunner

"Unbreakable Runner" should appeal to all those with an injury-prone background who want to seek a more effective ways of training. "Athletics Weekly" "Unbreakable Runner" is a game changer. For 10+ years I followed a "traditional" approach to training for races from 1/2 marathon to 100-mile distances with mixed race-day results. After turning 40 and recovering from knee surgery, I made the decision to change things up and fully embrace the programming laid out in "Unbreakable Runner." I'm now not only a stronger, faster and more resilient all-around mountain-athlete, I've set PRs across the board and achieved race-day results I never thought possible. Bob Africa

"Unbreakable Runner" is a must-read for anyone interested in improving performance, maintaining a balanced and healthy body and achieving longevity in the field of athletics. The plans and principles described in Brian's book have allowed me to reduce my average weekly mileage by over 60% while still routinely breaking 24 hours in some of the most challenging 100-mile races around. More importantly, this foundation has created the opportunity to replace the junk miles with training that has produced a stronger, healthier, more balanced and overall productive person. I finished Western States in 23 hours on 21 miles a week following this plan. The training isn't easy but the plan is crystal clear. Steve Crane"
