These are some of the books I’ve enjoyed very much on running.

Once a Runner

  • The story of Quenton Cassidy
  • This probably has a lot of sentimental value for me.

Again to Carthage

- Cassidy's story continued
- This is a story of a high school runner

Running with the Buffaloes

  • One of the best books on collegiate running I’ve read. This is based on a true story

Born to Run

  • This book left a lasting impact on how I approach running from technique to enjoying running.
  • This book made me question conventional wisdom on running shoes and moulded my preference for no-fuss simpler shoes.
  • Made me think about long term running health by trying to focus on good technique with natural running. Natural running is different for each and every person.
  • I try to incorporate the philosophy of running from this book.
    • Good running technique
    • Motivation for running as a lifelong hobby and not something which one does to tick a box like running a marathon
  • This book prompted me to read more about good running technique

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

  • This is from Haruki Murakami
  • This is a musing on running
  • Why he runs even when he is into advanced age and what running means to him personally
