40 Fabulous Reads For Running Enthusiasts

I'm not a runner myself, but have a few family members and friends who are avid runners themselves and partake in running competitions themselves. 

In fact, my stepfather has been a runner since high school and has run many marathons. Although he doesn't enter many races today, he still runs almost daily as a way to stay in shape.

My sister-in-law has also run since high school and still runs many road races throughout the year at the marathon level. She has qualified for the Boston Marathon three years running and is happily running it again this upcoming April. She's also moved into the realm of triathlons and has been competing at the half ironman triathlon level since 2011. She's hoping to complete her first full ironman triathlon later this year. 

So, this post is dedicated to all the runners out there who love to read about their favorite sport!! I came across an online article that highlights forty books about running. The topics on running covered are varied from bios/memoirs about famous runners, fiction, running culture and of course, how to guides to the world of running! Please check out 40 Exhilarating Reads for Runners from the Online College Courses website.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
