Few books capture the feelings of a runner. The thrill, speed, challenge, love of running is hard to put down in words. When people ask "How can you do that?" or "Why would you want to run that far?", I simply reply "Because I Love It".
Once a Runner by John L. Parker, Jr. has truly embodied the thoughts and pains of a competitive runner. Whether you are a collegiate, professional, or everyday runner, this book is a must for your reading list. It gives you the ambition and drive to get off your couch and pound out 60 quarter miles.
