The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances by Matthew Inman


All runners wonder, at some point or another, why we do what we do. Mr. Inmans explanation is the best Ive ever seen. And the funniest. Because he is clinically insane.
-Mark Remy, editor at large, Runners World, author of The Runners Rule Book

He runs. He sweats. He heaves. He hates it. He loves it. He runs so hard his toenails fall off. He asks himself, why? Why do I do this? Here, gorgeously, bravely, hilariously, is Matts deeply honest answer.
-Robert Krulwich, NPR

Finally! A voice that sings with the Blerches of angels!
-Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run
