Recommended Reading, Listening & Watching
I love to read and write, and I have also found that listening to both books and podcasts during my runs is a wonderful pastime. So, here is a growing list of recommendations and reviews on the running, literary and life fronts. All the best! ~Coach Patrick
Also, if you have a great read of your own that you would like to share and/or review, please add it into the comments or email me at email@example.com and if it is up to snuff, I will include it in this list.

I’ve heard that listening to a book is another way to enjoy a good run and seeing an entire page on a blog like this has really inspired me to try it! Sounds like a good list! I’ll have to check it out soon!
I read Born to Run around the time of my first half marathon. It was a fascinating read. And it got me moving! I’ll definitely check out some of your other suggestions.
Born to Run is definitely a good read! Some great cultural comparisons made. I was surprised and saddened when I heard the White Horse died.
Born to Run, such an amazing book~!
