Running-related books I’ve read and a plea for recommendations for more!
Born to Run – Just one of the books I’ve enjoyed reading on the subject of running over the last 12 months!
Since I caught the running bug just over a year ago, I’ve been immersing myself in all literature related to the subject of running!
Here’s my list of books I’ve read on the subject in the last 12 months:
- Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
- What I talk about when I talk about running by Haruki Murakami
- Running with the Kenyans by Adharanand Finn
- Barefoot Running Step by Step by Ken Bob Saxton
- The Art of Running Faster by Julian Goater and Don Melvin (*I’m in the middle of reading this one and I’m really enjoying it!)
- The Sky’s The Limit by Richard Moore – A book I’m about to read inspired by my watching of the Tour de France and increased cycling of late
And here’s a list of books on my ‘to read’ list in the near future!
- 14 Minutes: A Running Legend’s Life and Death and Life by Alberto Salazar (Mo Farah’s running coach) with John Brant
- Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness by Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman
- World’s Ultimate Running Races: 500 races, 101 countries, Choose your adventure by Angela Mudge
- Running My Life – The Autobiography by Seb Coe
- Running on Empty by Marshall Ulrich
Have you read any of these books in either list? What did you think of them?
Are there any other books you would recommend for an avid bookworm on the subject of running, or sport in a wider sense?
Future posts are going to include an explanation as to why I haven’t run barefoot for over a month, and keep stopping by for what I am sure will be an inciteful interview with a fellow runner!
Enjoy your running!
