Papers from the 5th Annual Meeting of the American Medical Joggers Association held in December 1977 in Hawaii. Physiologic aspects are covered in sections on endurance training in relation to the nervous system and to the heart, blood vessels, and nutrition. Sections on locomotion and on behavior include an interesting article on pathological foot types in runners and several pages of poems reflecting the emerging “literature of the road.” Most physicians will likely see a runner in their office at some time, and this collection may be useful.
