Whether You Want to Run a Marathon or Run Away from Marathons, These 5 Books Can Help

Posted on March 30, 2023

It takes a special person to run a marathon. You need to build the will and endurance, train your body and mind, eat the right foods, and wake up early to get to the marathon.

I’m not this person. For me, the idea of running for the fun of it elicits feelings of ick, and I’d rather find a couch, a blanket, a book, and an alarm clock that has infinite snooze – or better yet, no alarm clock at all.

Dear reader, this is where our interests align. If you want to start running, and enjoy reading, look no further than these books on the subject. I’ll be cheering you on when I wake up, well after the marathon is over.
