Why We Love It: This engaging book is a compilation of stories from 50 of the best female distance runners in history. The athletes share what they have learned from their years in the sport with regards to training, nutrition, mental health, and much more. What I love about this book is that all the athletes stress the importance of making decisions to promote longevity in the sport, such as healthy eating and training habits, and maintaining a healthy balance between athletics and other things in life. This is the book that I wish I had read when I was a young athlete, as it really normalizes the concept of progress not being linear, and the need to trust the process, rather than rushing the outcome. It’s a fast read, and a true ‘page-turner’, but also a great resource that you can refer back to when needed. Highly recommend!
