Many, many people have tried to suck me into this reading craze. I've been sort of anti-buy books for a while now (since I generally read them once and never again) so the library is my new BFF. You cannot imagine how many people have these books on hold! I thought it would take a year to get to me. But out of the blue I got an email saying I was first in line. Of course, I hadn't requested the other three so probably have a few months wait before I can read the rest of them. I started last night (and didn't get too far in before hitting the hay) and am looking forward to discovering the craze.
I also owe everyone a review of Kathrine Switzer's "Marathon Woman." It was awesome! By far the best running book I've read so far. If you're a runner I highly recommend it. If you're a woman runner I highly, highly recommend it. And if you're a woman marathoner Mario will not allow you to ever snorgle him until you've read it. Trust me, the snorgles are worth it! I have always been aware of the story but never really realized how deeply the discrimination against women in running went until I read this book. It makes me appreciate things I take for granted (like sending in a race application and checking "F" for female).
