My buddy, Rich Benyo, just released his new book, Timeless Running Wisdom. The editor of Marathon & Beyond, as well as a long-time runner himself, Rich collected original stories and added his own insights to the mix, too. It’s funny and philosophical, a great read for everyone from the beginner on up to seasoned road warriors.
It was my pleasure to contribute chapter 16, “Rest.” Check out the book and let me know how you like it! You can order your copy from Human Kinetics: http://www.humankinetics.com/products/all-products/the-timeless-running-wisdom.*
