This book was just OK. I got it for free as a kindle download, or I would have really been disappointed. I am not a diehard runner or all that experienced, so I was hoping to get some great tips about fitting more running time into my life, along with working full-time and having a family, etc. I didn't really find those tips in this book, although it does give some good music suggestions for your running playlist. Mainly what I got from the book is that the two authors love to run and they get up really early each morning to do so. Plus, they are freelance writers, so they don't have set work hours. So, really, this didn't help me at all, since I'm a normal mom with normal work hours and lots of other things going in my life. I'd like to be a better runner, but I'm not leaving my house at 5 a.m. each morning. I need my sleep, and I guess I'm just not that dedicated! That said, it's not a BAD read, it does have some humor and a few good anecdotes. It just wasn't all that helpful for a "self-help" type-book.
