I love to read. In fact, one of the reasons I’m perpetually tired is that I’d rather read a book than go to sleep. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of fiction because my life has been filled with too many things that require a lot of learning. This year I’ve learned more about accounting, federal contracts, algebra 2, and world history than I’ve learned since college LOL. So, when Marcia and Patty suggested favorite running book as a Tuesdays on the Run topic, I was excited and without an answer.
This year I’ve started a lot of running books, I’ve read Hansons Marathon Method from cover to cover, and I have a list a mile long of books I want to read. But none of them stuck out as a favorite. So, I went out to my running bookcase (yes, I have all my running books by my treadmill LOL) to see what I’d read in the past. Two books jumped out at me: What You Can, When You Can (affiliate link) and Mile Markers (affiliate link). Both touched me in different ways – WYCWYC is by Carla Birnberg, who I adore, so I won’t be passing that one along.
Mile Markers (affiliate link), on the other hand, is a well written book by Kristin Armstrong, who was a contributing editor for Runners World. It’s a great collection of stories and an easy read. Amazon tells me I bought it back in 2011 LOL and I know I read it right then and enjoyed it. But it’s been languishing on my shelf since then.
Here’s where you come in: I’m going to send my copy to one of you all. I want to share and no book should sit and gather dust in my lonely porch.
So, if you’d like to read the book, leave me a comment with your favorite book (fiction is always something I enjoy reading) and I’ll draw a name and send it out next week.
