This was a book I ordered over the Christmas holidays and I just got around to reading it. It's a quick, easy, light read. I chuckled at times because I could relate to some of the author's experiences.
I have two favourite passages to share with you:
The first is "Still, as a fellow long-distance runner who'd encountered them day after day, I felt like we somehow understood each other. Even if the skill level varies, there are things that only runners understand and share." My other favourite is "No matter how long you stand there examining yourself naked before a mirror, you'll never see reflected what's inside."
The context in which the first was written was most unfortunate but the passage itself is what leads me to believe all those runners at the races or out on the pathway on any given Sunday, are my extended family members.
I leave with you to ponder, those two quotes from his book!
