Once a Runner
Found it in a thrift store in Sacramento. Thought it sounded good.
"Once a Runner is a novel by American author John L. Parker Jr. and was first published in 1978 by Cedarwinds. Once a Runner illustrates the hard work and dedication that is required of an elite runner.
Since its publication, the novel has become a cult classic for competitive runners of all abilities.
A sequel was recently published titled Again to Carthage. This book was printed in a limited supply and will be reprinted in April 2009."
I've been reading this a lot lately, and although my running ability is never going to touch on these guys, it's still a motivating book. & my first fiction find in years.
