THIS BOOK.  It has taken me a good couple years I read it because I have re-read chapters, didn’t read books during my school year, and I’m a slow reader.  However today I finally finished it, and let me tell you guys… This is the best book I’ve ever read. Not only is it about running, but it is beautifully written. The author speaks exactly like any of us track athletes would talk and it engages you on that whole level. It takes you through training, competition, dating, and sports politics.  And it is also the single book to actually bring a tear to my eye at the very end. I would rave about this book in paragraphs and paragraphs more but my heart is just so shaken at how amazing this was.
If you haven’t read it. I recommend it so much.

And the writing not only relates to running, but it taught me a lot about life. Such a motivator and the reason behind my rigorous training last summer. SUCH A GOOD READ. And if I wasn’t passing copy along to teammates, I would be reading it again this summer.

Whenever running feels hard and slow and pointless, this book pulls me back under and I fall in love. I’m also wildly in love with Cassidy (besides the point). This book & the sequel have healed my broken heart so many times, especially while my bones were actually broken. So much love for this book. ❤️❤️
