REVIEW: The Courage to Start by John Bingham
A fantastic book for those who are thinking about taking up running, or for those who are seasoned runners and just need to “return to basics” a bit.
I loved how most of this book stressed the importance of following your intuitition, and listening to your body for what it needs! And, I loved how Mr. Bingham showed that it’s okay to do your own thing — and not have to strive for the same things others strive for. Just because someone else says you “should” do your running “this way” doesn’t mean you have to… your body is the better judge of that. Of course, there are certain rules & guidelines to be followed in order to avoid injury. But otherwise, it’s all up to you!
Great book! Highly recommended!
