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 and if it is up to snuff, I will include it in this list.
