Running is more than moving one foot in front of the other. Running can evoke spiritualism and mindfulness; it can teach fundamental lessons about goals, self-awareness, and self-improvement; it can be a transformative existential experience.
The Tao of Running offers a fresh perspective on this mental side of running while entertaining with vivid tales of running adventures. Going well beyond the standard training and racing advice found in most running books, it guides runners to a wider understanding of how running fits into their own aspirations, goals, and life philosophy.
The Tao of Running answers questions such as: How does running evoke mindfulness and lead to stress reduction? How does running promote special friendships and new perspectives on life?
No other book offers readers these multiple frameworks for understanding their running experiences along with lots of practical advice on getting the most out of running. Readers are guaranteed to gain a greater appreciation for the rewards and possibilities inherent in running and will significantly deepen, enlighten, and enrich their running experience.
Long-time columnist for Ultrarunning magazine and author of The Tao of Running, Gary Dudney is thrilled to share his hard-won understanding of the mind of the runner from being ‘out there’ himself during 40 years of running. He has also written advice pieces and adventure stories for all the major running magazines. Gary has completed over 200 marathons and ultramarathons, including over sixty 100-mile races. His home base is Monterey, California.
