Pris Chew
“Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall

Sarah Dudek
Last year I read “Once A Runner” and just fell in love with it. I feel like it is the “Catcher In The Rye” of running.

Jaja Ferrer
“What I Talk When I Talk About Running” by Haruki Murakami

Valeri Gatlin
“Born To Run” by Christopher McDoughall

Sharon Hanks
“Born To Run” by Christopher McDoughall

Sherry Minkiewicz
“Born To Run” by Christopher McDoughall

Robin Zehnder Muskopf

Google! lol I really haven’t found a book I love. Instead I read tons of stories and articles on the web.

Elle Park
“Running with the Kenyans” by Adharanand Finn. Finn is a British journalist who spent a number of months living in Iten with his family to learn about the secrets of the great Kalenjen runners. His prose is infused with British dry humor, which kept me going, despite my aggravation with his penchant for leaving story threads hanging.

Jodi Stuber
Does “Run Fast, Eat Slow” count? Food and reading, what more can you want.

Jon Bohnsack
“The Ultra Mindset” by Travis Macy

Reman Chim Tat Wee
“Run or Die” by Kilian Jornet

Alberto Gomez Monteseguro
“Born To Run” by Christopher McDoughall

Hafisz Nosly Wazid
“Run or Die” by Kilian Jornet. The only book on running that I own.

Brian Hock
“Running With The Buffaloes” by Chris Lear

Ian Lye
Ryan Sandes’ autobiography “Trailblazer” is a really funny, entertaining read. However, Jason Koop’s “Training Essentials for Ultrarunning” has really revolutionized my mindset on and approach to training this past year.

Tony Allen Riggs
“Run Fast, Eat Slow” by Shalane Flanagan and chef Elyse Kopecky
