Format: Paperback
Fantastic book.
A must read for any runner / anyone wanting to run (actually a must read for anyone)
They really are inspirational stories, that motivated me to up my training from 10k to half and full marathons, even looking into ultra marathons.
Very easy to read as stories are only few pages long.
Five Star book

I bought this for my brother-in-law who is a keen runner and I've had nothing but praise from him. He says it was the best birthday present he got that year.

reading a few stories was enough for me, I didn't find it inspirational at all so gave it away, however, new runners may like picking it up and dipping into it every now and then so I think it would make a nice present for them.

Inspirational Stories for anyone 23 July 2010
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Okay so I am not a runner, not even close, but I did think this book was motivating, interesting, and fun to read. The stories are all true stories from elite Olympians to casual joggers, who run great distances, average distances, or are just starting out. There is also a whole chapter on triathlons. Some of the stories include: Runners World's Mark Remy, U.S. National Team marathoner Josh Cox, Amputee Lindsay Nielsen, and a man declared brain dead! These stories really made me realize the dedication some people have and how it is important to do something, for these people it is running. I personally liked reading the stories for the new runners, since they are not to far from the point I am at right now. Overall, I would say this is a good book for anyone in sports since it is inspirational stories of "energy, endurance, and endorphins" all of which athletes face everyday. Whether you are a casual exerciser or sports player or professional, the stories are inspiring.

Inspiring and Motivational 2 Oct. 2010
By BostonJulie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an avid runner and was looking forward to reading this book. It is the first book of the series "chicken soup" that I read. I love the book. It has a variety of different stories from different types of people ranging from the beginner runner to the serious amateur runner to the olympic athlete and the ultra-marathoner.

It is truly inspiring to read about what humans are capable of. It makes me want to go for a run and push my limits a little more every time I read this book. It can also be emotional at times. I have found myself crying about the ending of story while reading at the rink during my son's hockey game.... a little bit embarassing but all the more worth it because it reaches your deepest feelings.

I highly recommend this book.

Wonderful for Runner and non-Runners 20 Sept. 2010
By Jewelry Whisperer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a few friends that have completed marathons and I am in awe. They are toned, disciplined, in shape and overall feel fantastic about themselves and the limits they push their bodies. They are so not like me!!
But for a brief glimpse of time because of the Chicken Soup for the Soul - Runners book...I was able to see what "their" world was like.
Chicken Soup for the Soul books has an incredible way to highlight the very essence of their themes. They are able to illustrate the highs and lows of the life of a runner in this particular case.
While I don't ever see myself becoming a runner (of course, you should never say never)...I was deeply moved by the personal stories of triumph, determination and do-it spirit.
As always...another hit from Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Chicken Soup for the soul:Runners 13 May 2011
By WV marathoner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great read. Inpsirational stories to make you want to get out and run if your a runner or a non-runner. Great stories for runners that let us know we are not alone on the roads. Recommend any runner to pick this up.

Is it OK to read the whole thing in one sitting? 3 Oct. 2011
By David Wellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm familiar with the Chicken Soup in name only, and never really thought it was anything special (despite the sales totals) I bought this because 1) I run, and 2) my spirit has been under quite the heavy load as of late.

I thoroughly expected to be mostly bored by the stories and anecdotes-- I was not. I literally had to force myself to put it down and save some for later.

It's not like some earth shattering, instant epiphany inducing text; but, it is good enough. And for 99.99% of life: "good enough" is just enough to be enough.
