It took me a while to read the book because I have been so busy and zonking as soon as my head hits the pillow at night. But I finally finished!
The Ultimate Runner is a Chicken Soup for the Soul type-book filled with feel-good stories for runners of all levels. While this book is aimed at the runner, it would be a good read for all athletes alike.
The book is broken into chapters, each with a set of stories. My favorite chapter is Running For A Greater Cause and my favorite story is Breaking Your Own Tape. The book also has a section in the back about Need to Know Info. This includes training schedules, stretches and more.
I would recommend this book to any athlete but most definitely to a runner. I will also return to it from time to time, either for a motivational pick me up or for help with my own training.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your favorite story?
