You'll be informed, inspired, and entertained by the programs, prescriptions, and personalities in this book. Who better to learn from than the best? Legends is more than a collection of biographies. It provides the closest and most complete look at how running and runners have changed from the great Emil Zatopek in the '40s and '50s to the superlative Uta Pippig in the '90s. It does so by detailing the development, training techniques, coaching, competitions, motives, and perspectives of 21 all-time great runners. Author Michael Sandrock, one of running's most prolific writers, draws upon his own 25-year running career and his extensive interviews and research to provide special insights throughout the book. Sandrock knows what runners want to know, and here he shares a wealth of information that's sure to satisfy with each sentence and sidebar. The runners selected range from the imposing short distance speedster Alberto Juantorena to the determined long distance marathoner Joan Benoit Samuelson. And because running greatness is not limited by political or geographical borders, runners from 17 countries are represented in the book. From special tips you can use to incredible feats that will inspire you, Running with the Legends is full of material to enhance your own running and your appreciation of those who have set the standard for excellence.|

Code 128 is a high-density 1D barcode symbology. This barcode set makes use of the entire 128 ASCII characters which include letter, number and symbols.
As with all barcodes, there are indicators to identify where the barcode starts and stops. These are marked in yellow below. Code 128 also has a check character which has been marked in green. The remainder of the barcode is the data being encoded. The text below the barcode is optional and is for human consumption in the event the barcode can't be scanned or if people also need to know what the code means.
Each character in the barcode symbol is composed of three bars and three spaces. Each bar or space must range from 1-4 units and the sum of all the width of all bars must work out to an even number. The stop marker is special because it adds an extra bar of 2 units at the very end (4 bars and 3 spaces). There are three different start markers to to identify which code set is being used. To represent all 128 characters, the code sets can be within a single barcode as needed by using control characters 98-101 (depending on the code set).
The check character is calculated by summing the value of each character and multiplying it by its position. The start character is also part of the sum but is added without weight (multiply by 1 just like the first encoded data character) then when you have the sum take the modulo 103 remainder. This gets a little more complex when mixing modes within a single barcode.
