I wish I'd bought another book

What would have made Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners better?

Longer stories, more stories about good runners. Less stories about people who weren't really good runners, just part time joggers.

What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Longer stories featuring inspiring runners who shared their stories of how they train to reach the top.

What three words best describe Christina Traister and Dan John ’s performance?

Not too bad.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Just... Meh...

Any additional comments?

Buy "Born to run" or "Running with the Kenyans" or any book of Chrissie Wellington if you want inspirational stories on how to become a better runner.

Dip in Dip Out

I thoroughly enjoy the format of this book.

The very short anecdotes in differing narrators voices are refreshing and entertaining, some are sad some are funny all are interesting.

This is a very Americanised book with regard cultural references, however the morals and themes are universal.
The title page plug for Dean Karnazes is somewhat of a false lure as out of nearly 100 stories only a couple relate to him.

A feel good book for times when you want to be cheered up and only have a short window of time.

okay

Some interesting inspiration but most stories are mediocre and I wondered why they were included.
