“I loved this book. I think it would appeal to all runners - whether you are running a 5K for the first time or have run 50+ marathons. Each chapter offers a great glimpse into an aspect of running.”



Why I Run: The remarkable journey of the ordinary runner

Foreword from best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell

Fun and inspiring, Why I Run draws on more than five years of writing about running in newspaper columns, magazine features and blog postings. Mark, an 11-time marathon runner chronicles a journey that begins with a guy looking for a bit of exercise and evolves into running becoming a way of life.

At once analytical, self-deprecating, enthusiastic and inspiring, Why I Run provides a fresh and rousing perspective on the rapidly growing sport that has allowed thousands of individuals to overcome challenges and fulfill their dreams, literally one step at a time.
