Books On Running

Start of the 2009 Thanksgiving Day race - Galloping Gobler - Tom is #49When I’ve had a few moments in between negotiation sessions with Fort Dearborn Life (re: Northeast Delta Dental’s acquisition of Combined Services LLC, a general agency), I’ve been poking through three books on running:   1) How to Train for and Run Your Best Marathon (Gordon Bakoulis Bloch); 2) Once a Runner (John Parker) and 3) Born to Run (Christopher McDougall).      The How to Train book is a primer with some good tips while the other two books are more inspirational.  All three books are worth the read.   Even non runners very much enjoy the Born to Run book.    Please let me know what you think if you have an opportunity to read one or more of these books.  Thank you.  Tom

    Hi Tom,
    Ran with your team a few times…work for Dr. Newcomb & Dr. Ladds. Anyways just wanted to chime in on one of the books you posted- Born to Run. I was fortunate enough to meet & greet with Christopher McDougall at UNH this fall. Fantastic runner and fascinating speaker. I highly encourage all to read his book-makes you think outside the box a bit. I actually ventured out for a 2 mile run…barefoot:-) The timing of his lecture was perfect….few days after I ran the Manchester full marathon.

      Hi Shawna,

      Great to hear from you and glad you are still running and working with Dr. Newcomb. How great to meet Christopher McDougall. Kudos on running the Manchester marathon; I did the 1/2. Keep it going.

      Tom R.
