Over the years I’ve grown to be a big fan of Runner’s World, and the book, “The Runner’s Brain: How to Think Smarter to Run Better” by Dr. Jeff brown with Liz Neporent is all the more reason I love them. Published in 2015, “The Runner’s Brain” is current and feels fresh. There have been quite a few books that I’ve read recently on the topic of running that I felt were painfully dull and even at times degrading to female runners which is not an issue here at all. The book is broken down into 5 parts: Running and Your Brain, Brain Strategies, Training and Racing, Challenges, and Resources for Runners.
“The Runner’s Brain” is filled with positivity and humor while tackling challenges for beginner and long-time runners. I highly recommend it for a quick runners refresh.
