I have not read any running books but I would like to, thanks for the topic. It does not seem that easy to find them, I can find running "instruction/guide books" but really any personal stories. One book that I want to get and read is called Because I Can. The woman had a serious car accident and had a very badly damaged leg, it is her come back story. She is in some of our local races and was suppose to do the NYC Marathon this year. She is an amazing woman.
Linda, I read a lot of AT Thru Hiker's journals and I love them also. What an inspiration, I have a couple of friends that have done it and I would love to also.
Live your life as though you are obligated to make the world a better place. Make a difference today.

I went back and looked and the nun is Sister Madonna Buder. She is truly amazing. I keep books on my Android and whenever I'm stuck standing in line or waiting for someone out somewhere I pull out my phone and read some. It's the best time I get for reading. My other favorite books right now, besides running stories, are by people who have hiked the Appalachian Trail, all 2100 miles of it.
