About the Author
Mike Bouscaren began running long distance events following decades of team and individual sports competition. He found ultrarunning's elemental spirituality so refreshingly free of hype and fanfare that he was compelled to chronicle his adventures. For athletes and truth seekers alike, his story recalls the essential message that while in competition there is only one first place, others who contend are not precluded from winning in a more personal sense. Mike attended Yale University and Harvard Business School and has spent most of his professional life as an investment advisor. He lives in Brookline, Massachusetts with his wife and three children.

Along the way we learn how to be a successful back of the pack runner with pacing, training, travel, nutrition, and mindset.
I agreed with his perspectives of ultra runners and found many of the same things true. There is a tremendous amount of time devoted to 'self' when you run long. He spoke of the struggles with family and marriage.
The book would have been much better if the author had spoken more about his training and race preparation; what worked and what did not.
If you want to learn something about running technique or advice on how to become an ultra runner, then KEEP MOVING.
If you want Once a Runner meets Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance then pony up.
Oh yeah and my non professional medical advice is defiantly do not eat Ibuprofen like MM's like the author does, it is generally not good for your overall health.
