Whether you’re a marathoner or an occasional jogger, everyone needs a boost to power through those first steps in the morning or those last steps of a grueling race. And there’s nothing better than hearing from people who have changed their lives by getting out there and doing the same. The benefits to your physical and mental health from hitting the road or the trail are boundless.
Ultramarathoner and New York Times bestselling author, Dean Karnazes, who once ran 350 continuous miles and has completed 50 marathons, in all 50 states, in 50 consecutive days, is a long-time Chicken Soup for the Soul fan who believes in the power of storytelling to change lives.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Running for Good, 101 Stories for Runners & Walkers to Get You Going, is a collaboration between Dean Karnazes and Amy Newmark. It is a new collection containing inspirational stories from real people that will get you up from your chair and out into the world. You will feel like you have 101 friends giving you tips and urging you on while you do so.
Join Amy Newmark and me on Tuesday, June 4, 10-11 A.M. CT US. Amy and I will be having a conversation about how parents who have used running to bond with their children, couples who ran together and repaired their marriages, people who ran their way right out of jobs they didn’t like and into new careers that stoked their passion for life, and people who have not only done “good” for themselves, but have also raised money for good causes through everything from 5K races to 100-mile ultramarathons.
