Prior to rekindling my relationship with exercise I was (and still am) an avid rural romance reader. However, since running has jumped up a notch or two in my life I have now become a reader of runners biographies and non-fiction about running.
There aren't too many runners biographies out there - perhaps because the runners are too busy running but I have read the following so far:
- Run! 26.2 stories of blisters and bliss by Dean Karnazes
- Mile markers: the 26.2 most important reasons why women run by Kristin Armstrong
- Everything to live for by Turia Pitt
- Short fat chick to marathon runner by Kerre Woodham
- Running against time: how I ended up at the top of Mount Fuji by Chris Pavey
- Running to extremes by Lisa Tamati
- Believe: Sally Pearson
I never plan on being an ultra marathoner or running up huge mountains, but often it's the little things in the books that you get the most out of.
And I am sure to throw in a few rural romances in there just to even things out!
