MY SELECTION OF THE BEST BOOKS ABOUT RUNNING

There is always a top 10, top 50 or top 100 etc. But I am listing what I consider to be the most influential running books that I have read.  Not in any particular order of preference.  Only 8 books but what a cast of writers and some magical stories and facts. I would personally consider The Lore of Running as the bible for any runner.  

How many have you read and what others would you add to the list. 

Feet in the Clouds – Richard Askwith

The Lore of Running – Tim Noakes

Running with the Kenyans – Adharanand Finn

Born to Run – Christopher McDougall

What I talk about when I talk about Running – Haruki Marakumi

Eat & Run – Scott Jurek

Relentless Forward Progress – Bryon Powell

Ultramarathon Man – Dean Karnazes

    • The Lore of Running is more of a reference book. Its a hefty tome but certainly one that is worth while having as you will need to refer to it many times during your running career.
