Running Nerds Rejoice!

"The only true way is to marshal the ferocity of your ambition over the course of many days, weeks, months, and (if you could finally come to accept it) years. The Trial of Miles; Miles of Trials"

Entertainment Weekly, of all places, has an interview up with John L. Parker Jr., author of the cult classic, Once a Runner. On April 7th, OAR, commonly referred to as "the runner's bible" (by me, at least) will be re-published after being out of print for years. Hooray!

It is also very exciting to hear that a prequel to OAR is in the works.

If you haven't already read and reread this story - stop what you are doing and go buy it (after you read the rest of this post, I mean).

You still aren't convinced that this is hard hitting news worth getting pumped about? Check out what Slate had to say about this work of genius. Then watch this sweet trailer for a fake movie that some other nerd (not me) made.

Ok - I'm off to go organize my race numbers chronologically. Keep running!
