Reviews


"Running, A Love Story is a frank and sometimes gritty look inside Jen Miller's heart. She speaks for a lot of us as she reveals her self-doubts, and then finds the confidence to quiet them through running. How running does that to us is, like love, very simple yet totally mysterious. But here's the bottom line: It works for everyone." Kathrine Switzer, Author of "Marathon Woman," First Woman to Officially Run the Boston Marathon and Leader of the 261 Fearless Movement. Led the drive to get the women's marathon into the Olympic Games, Winner of the 1974 New York City Marathon
"Millions of everyday men and women have a love affair with running. No book I've read captures the richness and complexity of this widely shared experience the exhilaration and heartbreak and everything in between more faithfully than Jen Miller's lovely memoir, Running." Matt Fitzgerald, author of more than twenty endurance sports books, including "How Bad to You Want It? Mastering the Psychology of Mind Over Muscle "
A contemporary coming of age story that will speak to a generation of women, RUNNING: A LOVE STORY is the candid memoir of a young woman s painful but triumphant search for her place in the world. Skillfully crafted and unsparingly honest, RUNNING is a courageous memoir written straight from the heart." Amy Hill Hearth, "New York Times" and "Washington Post" Bestselling Author
"RUNNING is a ballad for anyone looking to discover themselves. Jen Miller is remarkably honest, candid, and approachable in her writing style. She narrates in a way that makes you feel like the two of you are tucked in the corner of a tapas restaurant sharing stories way into the late hours. As someone who has never been "good" at running, I was delighted to find this book to be about so much more than sneakers and mile marks. This is a book about finding love, discovering your breaking points, and letting go. Jen pieces together a moral I think the world needs: only when we fully let go can we finally grip tight to the stuff that really matters." Hannah Brencher, author of "If You Find This Letter""
