This was an enjoyable book overall. I'm not a runner myself - yet - but I found myself relating to the author's descriptions of his running and how it helps keep him able to write and engage in the other activities he enjoys. It's not just about being physically fit; it's also about the mental peace and time to focus on only the repetitive motion of the run. If I'd not taken such a long break in the middle of reading this book I probably would have rated it higher - I'm sure it lost some of its power in the gap.
