I started two days ago reading (I actually listen to the audio book on my commute) to the Running Man, Charlie Engle‘s book and I love it. The audio book is narrated by the man himself and boy, isn’t this the most beautifully written running book of all times? Don’t get me wrong, Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner, written by Dean Karnazes, which I finished not long ago, is an amazing book too but for whatever reason Charlie Engle resonates more with me. Actually Charlie Engle and Dean Karnazes met at multiple events, one of the most famous being Bed Water.
Anyway, if you are looking for something to get you off the chair, try Running Man or Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner, or both. They both give me that feeling that I can put on my running shoes and I can run night and day for forever. This, if you are looking for some motivation.
