Today's a nasty day in Michigan - rain/hail/sleet and now snow. I had my 11 miler all mapped out to run first thing this morning, but woke up to crazy rain storms. I was so excited for the run that I even set an alarm for 645a and still woke up before it! That's a good feeling. With today's weather, I've put the run on hold until tomorrow morning.
The combination of crappy weather and my husband being gone all day had made me pretty productive around the house. I've been cleaning, organizing, doing laundry and catching up on reading. Which is when I realized I need some new running books.
Do you have any running book recommendations? Anything you've ready and enjoyed? I'm looking for something more fun than technical, but anything that you recommend would be awesome. I find that I get more motivation and confidence with more knowledge :)
Here's what I've already read and enjoyed:
The Long Run
Absolute Beginner's Guide to Half-Marathon Training
Living and Loving
How Running Changed my Life
I loved The Long Run! It was a great read and very inspirational. The Guide to Half Training was rather dry and I knew a lot of it already. Fast Track was a great first book although was a bit more technical than I would like. I met the author of Living and Loving at the Detroit Marathon expo, so I got her book. It was cute and inspirational but a bit too "God-dy" for my everyday life. The last book was a great bedtime read and was incredibly inspirational.
If you have any thoughts about great running reads or can point me in the right direction, please share!
