A fair running book, but there's better out there

I guess after several years of reading running books for inspiration, my standards have come up significantly. Relative to Born to Run and Ultramarathon Man, this book falls short on inspiration for me. I'd also put I'm Here To Win and The Extra Mile ahead of it. It's somewhat better than Eat and Run (I'm not a vegetarian, so YMMV) and The Longest Race (please, keep your politics separate from your running).

Happy running!

Fun and funny.

Enjoyable to get a view into the running life of one of my favorite Runners World writers. This made me appreciate my ability to run and want to go the extra mile.I also liked the plug for the most fun, scenic, must do, ect...runs and marathons.
The narrator was fluid and easy to understand. A good read. I would recommend this book.
