|P. Mark Taylor, Author of The Gift of Running|
I approached reading his book, The Gift of Running as if I was back in 2010 and I was just starting to learn about running. I also reviewed the information based on my own experiences to see if it was credible.
My thoughts on both perspectives? Buy the book. P. Mark Taylor has a great way to communicate the generalized and specifics of running. This isn't a feel good type of book about running. Let's face it, if you have been running more than a month, you know there are up's and down's in training and racing.
He uses his own experiences to teach some basics about form, nutrition and race strategy. How could I not enjoy this book, right?
- If you are a novice runner, buy the book
- If you are an experienced runner who needs a pick-me-up, buy the book
- If you are a coach, buy this book for your clients
Running is a gift we give ourselves and this book is a Gift that P. Mark Taylor has given us.
The Gift of Running is about (from the preface of the book)
- the human side of running
- becoming a runner
- working to become a better runner
- & staying safe, sane and happy as a runner
