An inspiring book with a simple message Runners Magazine has been one of the most trusted publications available to runners for decades. Its dedicated editor, Amby Burfoot has an impressive and inspiring running career as a marathoner. His book is laid out in short essays and he writes this book so fluidly and clearly that you breeze through the pages easily. This book provides runners with mental inspiration and anecdotes as well as appreciation for the hard work it takes to commit to each mile. Amby wants us all to remember that running is natural, and running is fun. With a basic pair of shoes you are able to push yourself mentally and physically, while giving your mind the break it needs to open up to creativity and thought. Amby reminds us that runners are thinkers, and we can all appreciate the simplicity of his message. I think another great book for the thoughtful runner is The Marathon Monks of Mount Hiei.
This book is very well written and contains many tips and tricks for how to train. Burfoot talks about his ups and downs during racing. He also highlights his favorits songs to listen to before races and other books he would recomend for running. This is a great intorduction book
