Running books

Motivating books!

  • Once a Runner - as

    far as motivating running novels go, this is probably at the top of my list

    from the ones I've read thus far.

  • Born to Run - this

    book probably single handedly started the minimalist running shoe craze. Even

    though barefoot or natural running is not for everyone, this book definitely

    made me a better and more knowledgeable runner.

  • Again to Carthage -

    This is a sequel to the first novel Once a Runner by the same author. I quite liked this as well.

  • Running with the Buffaloes -

    Based on a true story, this books chronicles a season with a cross country

    team at the University of Colorado. Highly recommended.

  • What I Talk About When I Talk About Running -

    this is a pretty short book on the topic of running and other things by Haruki


There are many other motivating running books which I'm yet to read!

Running know how

  • Daniels' Running Formula -

    Jack Daniels' Running Formula - I have not read this book cover to cover,

    but this is one of the most well regarded books on scientific training plans

    you can find.
