This was a good way to sample some philosophy. I never took a course in philosophy in college. What I know about it I've gotten indirectly through conversation, pop culture and literary reference. This book is a collection of essays in which an aspect of running is paired with a philosopher or a branch of philosophy. As a result you learn some new stuff and you can immediately see how it applies to everyday life. Apparently, there's a lot of books like this with philosophy paired with an array of modern topics.
