In a bid to DO something useful while I rest my weary body and mentally prepare for Sunday’s half marathon (I am mentally prepared in that it’s driving me mental with excitement) I have compiled a list of great running reads. The wonderful people at runnersforum.co.uk recommended all but the first book so I’m confident that they will be pretty awesome! If anyone asks you what you want for Christmas, simply select one, two or all of the books (depending on how good you’ve been!) My blogging now provides a public service...there is literally no end to my talents!
