Sole Sisters: Stories of Women and Running
This is a book of short stories about running women of all different ages who started running at all different times in their lives. It is so inspiring to read and realize that you can be great at running no matter when you start.
My favorite story is about a nun who started running 2 miles a day when she was 48 and became an incredibly fast runner.
Many of the stories show the bond that woman can have through running together.
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen
The author really captures the passion of running while writing about the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico. They are the worlds real runners, everyone in the tribe runs because they enjoy it and they can run all day with a huge smile on there face.
This book takes a look at humans as being a natural running people, it shows how our bodies are built to run. Many who have read this book (including me) have decided to take the leap and go barefoot to be more natural and more like the Tarahumara tribe.
