I love these posts since, on any given day, I have a number of random running thoughts in my head. Nothing significant enough to warrant an entire post…just random musings.
- Apparently, many of you wear underwear (thongs) with your running tights (if you have no idea what I’m talking about see here). I’m shocked! I’m in the minority! I still don’t think I could do it; I would be so uncomfortable. I feel like I’m left out of a secret club! Who knew?!
- I finally finished Born To Run. LOVED it. I won’t do a book review or give anything away though. All I’ll say is this book should be on your must-read list. I really had no idea what it was about (and I think it’s better that way); all I knew is that everyone raved about it. Now I know why!
- Many of you were interested in the North Face Stow-n-Go Sports Bra that I reviewed last week but were concerned about size. The bra is recommended for A/B cups. Amanda suggested another pocketed-bra from Gracie’s Gear. I’ve never tried them but they come in all sizes.
- Please help out fellow blogger Claire win the Cheribundi Vegas Marathon Challenge. She’s currently in second place!! All you have to do is “like” the Cheribundi FB page and then “like” Claire’s picture.
What is your favorite running book? Or a running book on your must-read list? I keep hearing that Running On Empty is good.
Thanks Kristy!! And thank you to anyone else who gets a chance to vote. Speaking of Born to Run (which I also LOVED), I’d get to train with Scott Jurek if I won this competition – how amazing would that be?! 🙂
Right now I am reading The Long Run by Matt Long. It is a truly amazing story about his recovery and return to running after being run over by a bus and nearly killed. I highly recommend it!
I loved Matt Long’s book too! Another very inspirational book is Rosie Swale-Pope’s Just a Little Run Around the World. What a courageous woman!! And of course, Murakami’s What I talk about when I talk about running – that was my first running book and would love to read it again.
You need to invest in the Lacie thong from VS. Most comfortable thing ever and great for running 🙂
I loved Born to Run. Just finished Running on Empty and I enjoyed it – not a can’t-put-down read like Born to Run was, but interesting and AMAZING what Marshall Ulrich does to his body!

Kara Goucher’s book is probably my favorite. She covers so many different topics related to running so the whole book is applicable
I loved Born to Run too!! That’s a really good book and he is such an engaging writer. I just finished Running on Empty and would recommend it. I actually ended up reading it during two cross country flights…which made it even more awe-inspiring.
Also, I am in the group that wears underwear (not thongs) with their tights. I feel too open and exposed otherwise!! haha
