Why Do It?
Running is never just about the running – it’s about the REASONS we have for running. The transformation that’s happening in our lives. In our newest publication, Running is Life will:
Connect the global community of runners
Capture our inspirational and insightful experiences
celebrate them in a meaningful, personal, and tangible way
Everybody has a reason why they run and no one story is going to be the same. That’s something beautiful about the running community; it’s a safe place for people to share their stories, and that’s why I think this book is so unique — it gives everybody an opportunity to share their story and to feel known.
