A book suggestion...

I bought this book on Amazon after a suggestion from a gentleman I met on an isle in Walmart. I was wearing a marathon training shirt and we struck up a conversation as he and his wife were both doing the marathon. When I told him that this year I was walking but wanted to learn to run as that is my goal for next year, he suggested this book.

I have barely gotten in to it but so far I really like it! It fascinates me that the author started "running" at the ripe ol' age of 43...the same as I am now. He has such a cool perspective and I am excited about getting further in to the meat and potatoes of the book.

I love what he says though...."The miracle isn't that I finished the race...the miracle is that I had the courage to start".
