If you have not heard of Dean Karnzes, I suggest you look him up. He is the ultra ultrarunner. He has run 50 marathons, in 50 states, in 50 days. He competes in 100+ mile endurance races and wins. He also once ran for 24 hours straight on a treadmill. The reason I bring him up is I just finished two of his books. Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner and 50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days -- and How You Too Can Achieve Super Endurance! . This is a guy who loves running and all things running.
I highly recommend both of these books. They are easy to read and provided me with some motivation and information about running. If I was struggling during one of my runs, I would think about how Dean endured running those crazy distances.
Which books have you read recently to help keep you motivated?
