With an exuberant mix of passion, insight, instruction, and humor, best-selling author--and lifelong runner--Martin Dugard takes a journey through the world of running to illustrate how the sport helps us fulfill that universal desire to be the best possible version of ourselves each and every time we lace up our shoes. Spinning colorful yarns of his running and racing adventures on six continents--from competing in the infamous Raid Gauloises to coaching his son's high school cross-country team--Dugard considers what it means to truly integrate the activity into one's life. For example, how the simple act of buying a new pair of running shoes can be a source of meaning and hope..."--Dust jacket flap.

I really liked this book about the love of running and how constantly pushing yourself - whether to be faster, stronger, or just out the door - makes you a better person. Dugard usually writes articles and approaches each chapter in that format which was a bit odd when trying to read multiple chapters back to back.
