Why Running Matters: Lessons in Life, Pain and Exhilaration From 5K to the Marathon by Ian Mortimer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is more than just about running. It gives nice little historical snippets- the history of numbers, the history of running to name a couple that interested me. It’s also philosophical- looking at life affirming issues, family values, what motivates us. I’m not sure it would encourage a non- runner to give it a go and having been feeling quite optimistic about my first half marathon I’m now veering more towards apprehensive, but it was a good read.
