Inspiration and practical tips for runners who prioritise enjoyment over pace and embrace their place as an "average" runner
In her first book, popular runner blogger Amanda Brooks lays out the path to finding greater fulfilment in running for those who consider themselves "middle of the pack runners" - they're not trying to win Boston (or even qualify for Boston); they just want to get strong and stay injury-free so they can continue to enjoy running.
RUN TO THE FINISH is not your typical running book. While it is filled with useful strategic training advice throughout, at its core, it is about embracing your place in the middle of the pack with humour and learning to love the run you've got without comparing yourself to other runners. Mixing practical advice like understanding the discomfort vs. pain, the mental side of running and movements to treat the most common injuries with more playful elements such as "Favourite hilarious marathon signs" and "Weird Thoughts We all Have at the Start Line," Brooks is the down-to-earth, inspiring guide for everyone who wants to be happier with their run.
