Review: Running Free

IMG_7486Book: Running Free: A runner’s journey back to nature
Author: Richard Askwith

If you’re feeling in a rut with your running, you will not fail to be inspired by this gem of a book.  After a stressful long winter of marathon training, my body and mind were tired.  I didn’t feel as motivated as I once did.  This book came along and rescued me at just the right time.

Forget pace, split times, expensive kit and race entries.  Askwith takes you back to basics, reminding you why you fell in love with running in the first place.  Whether it’s with squelchy toes through farmers fields, or getting lost in the mountains, this book is a liberating journey through the weird and wonderful of taking things back to nature.

It’s inspirational in its simpleness and beautiful in its humbleness. This book sparked my passion to get out and get dirty again.  What more could you want?!
