I've run a couple marathons and have toyed with the idea of tackling an ultradistance race. This book is both inspiring and somewhat instructional as it seems that all ultrarunners suffer from the same issues! My only complaint is that, like many collections, it did get a little redundant at times. ( )

I love reading books about running and runners. This one is a great compilation of essays from ultra runners. While it certainly hasn't motivated me to sign up for a 50K, 50mi, or 100mi race, it was interesting to read about the brutal experience so many men and women have done, and continue to do, with enthusiasm. I'll stick to marathons. :) ( )

I first took up running in middle school, where I ran the quarter-mile for a track team that, to my recollection, never won a meet.
