As someone who is just getting into ultrarunning, I felt like this book was very comprehensive and a great educational tool to equip me for my first season of competition. It answered many questions I didn't know I had and was a terrific resource for me. I feel much better informed and prepared to race (at least...mentally) after reading this book. And apparently the second edition is 100+ pages longer. #ultrarunning #marathon

It was okay and enjoyable. I wished a specific part about a queer character hadn‘t been included. Tried to grapples with race at the time. Easy to read.

I had no idea where to start with educating myself on ultra running but so far this book is very helpful. Hoping I can apply what I'm learning to train smarter and perform more successfully on race days.

"...essential guidance to anyone dreaming big dreams" sums this book up nicely. I enjoyed this and learned a lot more than I expected to, both about Alexi and about myself. And I feel more inspired to show up and put in the hard and mundane work to chase some of my dreams that I've decided are real.

#AutumnPlease! Day 24: #WorldPolioDay reminded me of Wilma Rudolph, Olympic champion and world‘s fastest woman, who suffered from polio as a child. Ever since she was a baby, Wilma had always been sickly, weighing only a little over four pounds at birth. Yet despite this, she remains a sprightly young girl who preferred jumping and running to simply walking. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-7uT

This book poses the question of whether or not we will ever see a marathon run in two hours or less. It was published in 2015. In 2019, Eliud Kipchoge became the first to do so with a time of 1:59:40. But even if this milestone has already been reached, this book is still interesting and worth reading.
