Extraordinary book, and the reading makes it better. I use it to motivate me to consistency in every area of my life.
Bruce Denton's "introduction" in chapter 6 is really compelling. I think that the end captures everything about a race!
My favorite scene is probably the chapter called "Demons" where Cassidy tries to articulate what runner allows him to express. Don't let the title of the chapter fool you - it's a literary device.
When Denton says to Quenton at one point, "How nice for you to have arrived right on time." It's a beautifully poignant moment.
