Share: Summer's running + reading is fine

To Be a Runner and Running for WomenSummer's here, and more time for hitting the open road on holiday, family vacation or a long weekend of racing.

What to slip in your carryon?

Two new books that I’ve been toting around with me lately (and returning to again and again) are Kara Goucher’s Running for Women: From First Steps to Marathons” (Touchstone, 2011) and Martin Dugard’s To Be a Runner: How Racing Up Mountains, Running with the Bulls, or Just Taking on a 5-K Makes You a Better Person (and the World a Better Place) (Rodale, 2011).

Both ‘chunk’ content in quick-to-read and digest bits, so they’re perfect for tucking away in a summertime travel or gym bag. Have a minute and want to get inspired? Pick up one of these volumes, flip it open to a page and set out to explore another topic or chapter.

They’re ideal for the time-crunched reader and running enthusiast.
