In crafting and illustrating my new e-book, I Loathe Running and You Can Also, I required to tackle loads of the whys and hows of length managing, for both longtime runners and those who are curious about doing their first 5K. The e-book is not so a lot about precise coaching strategies or what sneakers to wear rather, it points out why any sane human being would, in the twenty first century, operate any farther than they needed to capture a bus. I use extra than 65 illustrations to make sense of matters like procrastination, setbacks, pain, and evaluating ourselves to other runners, as nicely as to present standpoint on a hobby that appears to be weird to others and, plenty of occasions, to all those of us who operate, way too. 

The following illustrations all seem in the e-book, which is readily available for preorder now and ships March 16. 

From Chapter 13: “Loving Some thing Is Distinctive than Liking It” 

From Chapter 4: “Compete (Versus Yourself)”

You vs. You, if you had skipped this run vs. you, six months ago vs. you, when you were a person who never could have imagined running this far

From Chapter nine: “Progress Is Not a Straight Line” 

A plan, ideally

A plan, actually

From Chapter seven: “Inspiration Is Not a Strategy”


From Chapter eight: “Write Your Have Definition of Success” 

People who get to decide what the point of all your running is: you

From Chapter 11: “There Are No ‘Hacks’” 

The zen of running: Put in the miles so you can put in the miles so you can...

Brendan Leonard’s new e-book, I Loathe Running and You Can Also: How to Get Started off, Retain Likely, and Make Feeling of an Irrational Enthusiasm, is readily available for preorder now.
