Reading about running is one of my favorite ways to stay motivated. I have a subscription to both Runner's World and Running Times and I'll admit, I get a little too excited when I find these magazines in my mailbox. I also routinely stalk running websites and blogs for information and have read several running books, which I tend to devour the same way most people read bestsellers.
In case you're looking for a good running book or two, here's a list of ones I've read:
- Kara Goucher's Running for Women (Kara Goucher)
- Performance Nutrition for Runners (Matt Fitzgerald)
- The Competitive Runner's Handbook (Bob Glover)
- Racing Weight (Matt Fitzgerald)
- Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide (Hal Higdon)
- What I Talk About When I Talk About Running (Haruki Murakami)
- Running for the Hansons (Sage Canaday)
- The Lola Papers (Amy Marxkors)
- Hansons Marathon Method (Luke Humphrey with Keith and Kevin Hanson)
Some are better than others (LOVED The Lola Papers) but I've learned at least a few things from each one. And after all, the broader your perspective and knowledge, the more you'll able to do with your running. At least that's what I tell myself to justify my ever-growing running book library :)
I'm taking suggestions: What running-related books/magazines/websites/blogs do you recommend?
Looking forward to checking out your favorites!
