Runners want to read about their awesome sport, and why wouldn't they?

Finishing a race, a marathon or shorter (or longer!) is one of those endeavors many people are driven to complete during their lifetime. Once in the groove, it's compelling for runners to strive for continuous improvement, and to continue doing race after race. Some may consider running addictive, and they might be right. And for just staying in shape or losing some weight, running can be a fun exercise method; racing can be a high on an extreme level. Running doesn't require much equipment or gear to start or maintain. It's a greater calorie incinerator and muscle builder, as well as a motivator for sound eating.

The benefits of running are numerous. Running strengthens the heart and cardiovascular system, in addition to the supporting muscles. People who commit to regular running can find themselves months later in possession of a brand new body - the transition can be that dramatic.

Runners can also experience a natural high after a run because of the release of endorphins, putting them in a better mood, in addition to feeling the accomplishment after finishing a run.

Here are some good selections, fiction and nonfiction, to help you experience running adventures, keep you motivated, and perhaps assist you in preparing and training for further accomplishments as a runner.
