Look What Came in the Mail!
My running friend Sheila recently suggested Hanson Marathon Method to me so I took advantage of an Amazon gift card and ordered it. and it came today! I can't wait to start reading it.
I love reading about running. In fact I just had to start pairing down my collection of running of books. For the most part, I read on my Kindle but I still have hard copies of a lot of books I read before I had my Kindle. I finally realized that there was no sense in hanging on to most of them. I enjoyed reading them but now they just sit on my bookshelf, so I've been trying to pass them along to other running friends. I am hanging on to a few like Advanced Marathoning that have training plans and other information that I use regularly.
I just finished reading Scott Jurek's book, Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness, based on a recommendation from my friend, The Happy Runner. What a great book!Jurek is so inspiring. While I don't think I could ever go completely vegan like he has, reading about his experiences with nutrition definitely has me thinking more about my diet and how I can improve it.
What other running books should I check out?
