Yesterday, I finished a great book on running. It was more of a personal account of running than a running book.
I am a runner. I don’t run as much as I used to, but I have recently put myself on a training plan, and I have a goal to run 50 miles this month.
No, I don’t plan to run the 50 miles all at once, but someday I might want to. That’s what the book is about basically.
Keeping with the theme of my previous book blog, I will now answer the following: why, what, and how.
Why (This Book)?
I like reading books about running. I saw it on the Overdrive app (which is the app I use to borrow library books) and click it. Simple.
What (Is The Book About)?
Tom Foreman decides to run a marathon with his daughter and then gets sucked into running. By the middle of the book, we find him training for an ultra marathan (a 50-ish mile run).
You can read the full synopsis here: Goodreads Page – My Year…
How (Did I Like It)?
I know I say this about every book I read, but I loved it. I wanted to read it again immediately after finishing it.
The book is well written. The writer is honest and human. I appreciate that.
While Born to Run is my favorite book on running, this one is second.
