I read this book before I go to sleep when I know I'm not going to want to run the next day. I read parts of this book aloud to my friends who think I'm 'crazy' for running. I read this book when I'm commuting to work. I read this book when I just want to think about running. Not a how-to run book, nor a why you should run book, but a oh!-that's-why-I-love-running book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I found a thoughtful collection of stories in this book. Very well put together. I didn't want to read the book too quickly, rather, I decided to savor each story and appreciate the essence of each. It took me quite a while to finish the book. I would say this would be a necessary addition to any runners book case.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
