    Once a Runner captures the essence of what it means to be a competitive runner; to devote your entire existence to a single-minded pursuit of excellence. It has become one of the most beloved sports novels ever written. Originally self-published in 1978 and sold at road races out of the trunk of the author's car, reading the book became a rite of passage for many runners, and tattered copies were handed down like sacred texts from generation to generation.

    Rick J. Mitchell says: "Spellbinding!"
    "Great performance of one of my all-time favorites"

    What did you love best about Once a Runner?

    Extraordinary book, and the reading makes it better. I use it to motivate me to consistency in every area of my life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Once a Runner?

    Bruce Denton's "introduction" in chapter 6 is really compelling. I think that the end captures everything about a race!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Denton says to Quenton at one point, "How nice for you to have arrived right on time." It's a beautifully poignant moment.
