I wanted to be inspired by finding someone like me, who is not the fastest runner. I wanted to feel connected to another 'average' runner.
I still love reading blogs - Skinny Runner, Hungry Runner Girl, Sweaty Emily, Ali, and Sarah Oual - you know the girls - but I will admit that they all seemed to run at a pace that will forever be out of reach for me. But they give me hope.
And with none of my friends into running, I love reading running blogs and books because I can feel like I'm having a 'conversation' with a friend about running.
And when I had read every post and got myself caught up on all the running blogs I read religiously, I needed something else to read. So I started with the books. And there are some really great running books out there folks. Not just the technical books that lay out training plans, but the ones where people lay everything out there for you.
And needing a bit of inspiration these days - I picked up this one I've been meaning to read for quite awhile:
In honour of this awesome read, I thought that I would share with you some of the other amazing 'running' books I've read. In no particular order:
