It has been my goal this year to run a marathon - I am still quite far from that goal but I've been trying to surround myself with things that will motivate me to accomplish this goal. This book was given to be my parents for Christmas. I really like the way that Rachel Toor writes! She treats her reader like an old friend. Holding nothing back & being completely honest about everything is so refreshing. I did feel that at times the book related less to the actual idea of running & more about how running helped her cope with personal trials. While I appreciate that running provided her the time & space needed to handle difficult situations it did not always help me in my preparation for running a marathon. I hope someday to be like a runner like Rachel!
