Inspiration and practical tips for runners who prioritize enjoyment over pace and embrace their place as an "average" runner

In  her first book, popular runner blogger Amanda Brooks lays out the path  to finding greater fulfillment in running for those who consider  themselves "middle of the pack runners" — they're not trying to win  Boston (or even qualify for Boston); they just want to get strong and  stay injury-free so they can continue to enjoy running.

Run to  the Finish is not your typical running book. While it is filled with  useful strategic training advice throughout, at its core, it is about  embracing your place in the middle of the pack with humor and learning  to love the run you've got without comparing yourself to other runners.  Mixing practical advice like understanding the discomfort vs. pain, the  mental side of running, and movements to treat the most common injuries  with more playful elements such as "Favorite hilarious marathon signs"  and "Weird Thoughts We all Have at the Start Line," Brooks is the  down-to-earth, inspiring guide for everyone who wants to be happier with  their run.
