    1. The Resilient Runner, by William Peters, deals with the psychological aspects of running, and ways to deal with all its numerous challenges. He writes for beginners as well as advanced runners, and leaves nothing lacking in his advice.I used to run before my allergies put a halt to it. Now I go biking and found that much of what William wrote in the book could apply to this as well. Some of his material could even be profitable in many other areas of life.I found the writing style excellent, wit [...]

    2. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”- Jim RyunIndeed I never imagined the complexities of mind preparation for a simple task as running. In fact, I overly underestimated the importance of the mental aspect in this mammoth task I’ve always promised myself I will one day tackle (for the sake of losing weight!). This book develops the role the mind plays for the professional runner. It is the key that removes perceived limitations to achievement of goals. Will [...]

    3. Although this book isn't relevant to me since I don't race, I think my kids (who do compete) could get helpful encouragement and insight from this book. I appreciated the quotes from different elite runners and thought the chapter "Make Friends with Pain" was especially good. Distance running is a punishing and difficult sport and since my son runs 60 miles a week I have seen him exhausted and uncomfortable. The chapter about pain states that pain is normal and suffering is critical to the succe [...]

    4. I received/won this book from the author as "first reads" book. It is concise and easy to read with many helpful ideas about dealing with the potential mental pitfalls that tend to occur while running long distances. Highly recommended.

    5. This is a must-read for any real endurance runner, whether a world-class competitive racer, club or school runner, or a lone-running marathoner. In it Peters explains why the mental aspect of a runner's approach to training and running is as important, if not more important, than the physical aspect. He made me believe that a runner will never reach his or her potential without training the mind as much as the body.He lays out the qualities of successful runners and then explains each one: motiv [...]

    6. I got this book for free on LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.As a runner, I knew I had to read this book! I sleep, eat, and breathe running. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about running, and this book just helped fulfill my daily dose of reading about running. This book offered many good tips on how to be a better runner- and not in the traditional fitness and exercising way. Most running books tell you to amp up your training or to do something based on the physi [...]

    7. For any runner, this book feels like a must have. Actually, not being a runner, but a walker, I got alot out of the very solid, usable advice. In fact, the tips and hints of this book can apply to anyone wanting to improve their life. Truth be told, there are many days I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than get out there and exercise. And this books simple, yet approachable tips, like "How to Talk to Yourself About Running," which is all about encouraging ourselves to get out there and do what [...]

    8. I received/won this book from the author as "first reads" book. This was an excellent read. It was not a typical "how to become a better runner" book. The author took the inner aspect of running and broke it down for the reader - the inner aspect of running that I always assumed was natural or intrinsic. I always felt like an outsider in the running circle because it did not come naturally to me, and I always wondered how everyone else did it. The author explained how to be a runner within yours [...]

    9. Good mental training. Great ideas on what to do while running a marathon and what to think about. Not sure I'll remember everything the book said to do but definitely think it will help!

    10. I am a sporadic runner with good intention and the ambition to run a half marathon one day (yes, not there yet!) This book couldn’t have been timelier in that sense. I always suspected that mental toughness was somehow more important than physical endurance and the book adds to that belief. As it says: "The gray matter between your ears is far more important to your success than your muscle fiber."The book is a manual which outlines a logical way to build mental toughness while running. The me [...]

    11. “The Resilient Runner,” by William Peters, sets out in a few chapters what other books on the topic of mental fitness take hundreds of pages to cover. But it seems like all the important facts about mental fitness are well summarized and would provide a good start for the beginning runner, as well as a good review for the advanced runner who wants ensure that he or she has all aspects of “mental training” covered. I liked the way the book started, with the qualities of successful enduran [...]
