I am an avid reader.
I am *in the middle of* no less than 20 books right now and have another 20 or so on my book shelf waiting for me to read, yet I find myself searching Barnes and Noble online frequently. Before you give me a lecture and advise me that the library is much cheaper, I will admit that I like to highlight books I read and so the library is no good for me unless it is a fiction book that I only plan on reading once.
If you however are not a crazy book lover like myself, but you are still a runner who would like to improve the quality of your runs and races then I HIGHLY recommend reading Running Within, by Jerry Lynch and Warren Scott.
The cover describes the book as a guide to mastering the body-mind-spirit connection for ultimate training and racing.
I do not think I need to say much else about it, other than it is amazing, and you might need a highlighter.
