Running Through The Wall: Personal encounters with the Ultramarathon

Running Through the Wall: Personal Encounters with the Ultramarathon

I want to talk about a book that I have been reading. Basically the title gives the book away:) It's a collection of short stories written by and about the experiences of Ultrarunners. It's really great when you've only got a few minutes to spare.

I am giggling now.... I suppose the book would be ideal to bring into the bathroom. If you're the kind of person that sits awhile:) hee hee

The stories are great and you get to know a bit about ultrarunners in the United States. I think that it would be great to find a book about ultrarunners worldwide. I am still so amazed that there are so many people in this community!

Once a Runner by John L. Parker Jr. (1998)Once a Runner by John L. Parker.
This book, if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a copy, is supposed to be a classic. I have come into a photocopied version of it... will report once I have read it.
