In honor of this weekends marathon, I think this weeks question had to be about running! Those of you who are long time bloggie friends, know that I post a monthly book review because I LOVE to read. It is one of the most enjoyable things that I do, besides running.
While injured or when lacking in motivation I got sucked in to finding books about running. Here are a a few of the really good ones (in case you are looking for gifts for those runner friends):
My Life on the Run: The Wit, Wisdom, and Insights of a Road Racing Icon (Funny and inspiring)
Running with the Buffaloes: A Season Inside with Mark Wetmore, Adam Goucher, and the University of Colorado Men's Cross-Country Team (Made me want to be fast and run really far!)
Once a Runner By John Parker (Thank you all for recommending this one, I hadn’t heard of it but enjoyed listening to this during my last few long runs._
All right already so what is the question…well I feel like there are simply not enough really great running books! Sure, there are books on form which I have also read…I want more stories. So to get me pumped up and inspired to run this weekend I am asking for your PERSONAL best running moment? Was it the day you ran that first mile? Your first finish line? Overcoming that injury?
