    In this engaging collection of essays, author and athlete John Jerome celebrates the simplicity and freedom of running. With contagious passion, he strips away fads and myths to offer basic guidelines for participants, from beginning joggers to those preparing for marathons. For years Jerome recorded his thoughts and experiences during his daily training. As he ran, he discovered not only physical benefits, but philosophical ones as well.

    This one would be 4th among my audiobooks. I found it very entertaing and a good light listen while I'm out running


    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it held my attention, although I don't agree with everything he said but it is good to have different opinions and makes long runs on your own go pretty quick

    I enjoyed it. It has given me headings, and formats to log stuff onto my own Blog
