“Kristin Armstrong has inspired an entire generation of women to get out and live life like you mean it. Mile Markers is her quintessential work; it left this man reenergized to reach for the stars!” ―Dean Karnazes, New York Times best-selling author and ultramarathoner
“Kristin teaches us how the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other, no matter how long or how fast, can better connect us to ourselves and to those we love. She shows us how getting out the door for a run can solve our most difficult problems, temper a foul mood, and uplift our spirit.” ―Deena Kastor, American record holder in the marathon and half-marathon and Olympic medalist
“With Mile Markers, Kristin Armstrong switches the sun on a misty morning outing and beautifully illuminates the life lessons that make a run much more than just a workout.” ―Kathrine Switzer, first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon and author of Marathon Woman
“If you are in love with running, you will fall in love with this book. It is witty and profound, yet so down to earth that you'll find yourself wondering if she isn't part of your own running group . . . and truly she is. Her writing echoes our thoughts and experiences as mothers, daughters, friends, and sisters running together through the seasons of our lives.” ―Jamie Allison, Founder & CEO Moms in Motion, Inc.
