Reviews

"The best novel ever written about running."--Runner's World
"Part training manual, part religious tract, part love story, and all about running, Once a Runner is so inspiring it could be banned as a performance-enhancing drug." --Benjamin Cheever, author of Strides
"By far the most accurate fictional portrayal of the world of the serious runner...a marvelous description of the way it really is." --Kenny Moore, Sports Illustrated
"The best piece of running fiction around. Beg, borrow, or buy a copy, and you'll never need another motivator." --Dave Langlais, Runner's World
