I was a little bit wary of the subject when I picked up the book. I don't meditate, I don't do yoga, and I've been a runner my entire life. But by highlighting the latest in sports science and neuroscience, Havey presents a powerful argument to get me to open my eyes and run in "high definition." This is a book that has already helped me from my every day training run to fast pace workouts. I've learned to acknowledge how I'm feeling, not override it with Norman Vincent Peale-style positivity. I've learned that the beauty in the run doesn't come from finishing it, but experiencing it.
Mindful Running also doesn't just speak in the theoretical: Havey uses actionable steps to take the ideas she espouses into the every day run.
This is a book that will change many runners' perspective on their sport. It certainly changed mine.
