    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Rodale; copyright 2011
    • The updated 4th edition of Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide now includes half marathons, running for women and running for charity

    More than half a million people have successfully reached their goals using the training program offered in this definitive guide. Marathon is among the bestselling running books of all time for many reasons, but above all others is this one: it works.

    At the core of this edition remains Hal Higdon’s clear and essential information on injury prevention, training and nutrition as well as all-new chapters on women’s running, half marathons and charity running.

    Running is basically a simple sport. You lead with the left foot, follow with the right foot and continue. Except now we have heart-rate monitors, global positioning devices and high-tech shoes. This book demystifies the marathon experience and allows each runner to achieve peak performance without anguish or pain.

    Let Hal Higdon, longtime contributor to Runner’s World magazine and veteran of more than 100 marathons, guide you through the training and preparations to ensure that you cross the finish line in triumph.
