Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner by Dean Karnazes
Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner

Jocelyn McAuley, January 2, 2009

Previous reviewer has it backwards. This isn't about fun- its about sanity and defining 'the Edge'.
+ running a marathon before breakfast,
+ developing the pizza burrito method for eating three slices at a time,
+ running to the development of night blindness
+ training to the point of a 30bpm resting pulse
... sounds completely insane,
then read this book.

Second hand running is healthy for you- didn't you know?

Running 101 by Joe Henderson
Running 101

Jocelyn McAuley, January 23, 2007

Simply put- this is a great running book that has spoken to me in all my forms of being a runner.

I've picked this up as a beginner, a running addict, an injured jogger and a lapsed runner to find that it speaks and motivates me each time to be smart and healthy for myself.

Definitely one to keep around on the bookshelf.
