There’s nothing quite like reading a book about marathons on a weekend that you run a marathon. I carried My First 100 Marathons: 2,620 Miles with an Obsessive Runner by Jeff Horowitz in my bag with me and read it while I was laying around on Sunday recovering.
Jeff is a massive inspiration to any marathon runner. The book reads like a combination travelogue + novel + running philosophy treatise. I was really pleased with my Huntsville performance and – after reading Jeff’s book – was even more motivated to get up off the couch as quickly as possible and go run another marathon.
If you are a marathon runner, you’ll love it.
