I read about this sequel to the cult classic "Once a Runner" by John L. Parker Jr., in Runners World Magazine.
It's a great book overall, well written like the first, and grabs at runners in the same way as before--just not at first; it starts pretty slow.
I did not like the way he played with time and real people; Mark Stickley came along 2-3 years after the Shea sisters, not 10 years before.

Really enjoyed the sequel. Probably almost as good as the first novel overall, just not quite as funny. Read morePublished 9 months ago by AC
The beginning of the book, perhaps the first half, makes you wonder when Parker will get to the hard core running. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Leslie Realander
