Foursquare told me so:
I believe it lately, though. I was so caught up in the Hunger Games series that life briefly consisted of nothing else.
I was even dreaming of living in the Seam and having to learn to use a bow and arrow. J and I make so many references to these books in our daily conversations it’s quite comical (or pathetic, one of the two).
But I can’t help it. I love a good book. And when I was offered the chance to review a running book I jumped all over it.
It’s the story of how (and why) Marshall Ulrich ran across the country. If you are training for a race, or even thinking about training for an event, I would especially recommend reading this book. It’s truly inspiring how he refused to give up even with temperatures reaching 100 degrees and/or he was injured, or when he was sleep deprived. The list of obstacles he encountered is ridiculously long. But his sheer determination and will to finish what he started (despite those obstacles) is what pulled me in.
I’ll be honest and say that it was a hard book to get into at first. I didn’t really like Marshall in the beginning. But once he started the actual journey across country I couldn’t put it down! There were many, many late nights due to this book.
I don’t want to give away too much because you have a chance to win a copy of this book for yourself! Just leave a comment on this post telling me one of your favorite books. That’s it. I’ll pick a winner tomorrow night! GOOD LUCK.
Please note that I was offered this book free of charge, along with a copy for one of you. As always, all comments and opinions about the book itself are my own.
