Hi, thought this Forum could do with a book recommendations thread - so here we go 1) Born to Run by C. McDougall I'm pretty sure everyone here will know it but thought I'd include it nevertheless 2) The Runners Body by R.Tucker & J. Dugas A great read about the science behind running (includes things like metabolism, bones, cardio-respiratory system, Immune system, Injuries,...). A definite recommendation for anybody that is interested in those kind of things! 3) Ultramarathon Man by D. Karnazes Brilliantly written, lots of interesting & funny stories by Karnazes. It's basically an autobiography, just not as dry 4) Relentless Progress Forward: A guide to running ultramarathons by E. Grossman & B. Powell Nice intro to ultramarathon running that covers pretty much everything a beginner to ultras might want to know. 5) Running on Empty by M. Ullrich Good read by another Ultramarathon Runner and his run across the States. Even though I didn't enjoy it as much as Karnazes book, I'd still recommend it! Btw.: Ullrich had his toenails removed, so he wouldn't have to worry about them when running That's it from me - any other recommendations?
