As a Canadian and a runner, I found this book inspiring, entertaining and informative. It's a quick read consisting of about 70 short essays on a wide range of running topics.

There is definitely a Canadian flavour to it. Some of the stories are about running in the cold Canadian winter, Terry Fox, Around the Bay, and The Ottawa Marathon. But any runner no matter where they are from can relate to this book.

Sutcliffe is the founder of irun magazine and the chapters of his book read like magazine

What a great read! As a newbie runner I found all the chapters and anecdotes truly inspirational. What was also fantastic was the author was someone from our city so it was fantastic to read about his journey through running locally with local landmarks and races.
Fantastic, Inspirational, Motivational and Uplifting.

Great read for runners ... even better if you're a Canadian runner. An awesome collection of inspiring stories that motivate you to get out the door every day you can! A book to read again and again. And I was even lucky enough to have my copy signed by the author :)

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.
