Publisher's Summary

Why are so many people drawn to running? Why is running the most common physical activity? What is it about running that empowers so many people? And how can runners harness that power to create a more meaningful life? The Inner Runner addresses these questions and a whole lot more. This book is not about how to get faster or run a marathon; rather, it explores how the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other helps you harness your creative powers. Learn about the psychological, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual benefits of running and introduce lifestyle changes based on the latest scientific research on running and its effects on hormones and the brain.
As a nationally recognized running and fitness coach with a PhD in Exercise Physiology, Jason Karp brings his expertise in science-based coaching to runners of all levels. He believes that running gives you a chance to discover, challenge, and bring out the best in yourself by impacting your creativity, focus, imagination, confidence, and health. Let The Inner Runner help you become not only a better runner, but a more creative, productive, and imaginative person.

Interesting little book on the joy of running

This was an interesting book on the joy of running and the benefits that come from running. Written by a clear keen, but also not an elite world level runner, this is a great book for the rest of us middle packers.

enjoyable book

I have been a casual runner for 4 years but for the last 6 months I have been training for my first half marathon and in doing so have discovered that I truly LOVE running. I could relate to a lot in this book as running has improved my mood and I have become more confident and happy all due to my running. I'd listen to the narrator and think to myself, "hey that's like me! I am a runner!" Was an enjoyable book and anyone who likes to run will enjoy this,

Inspiration to keep on running

I used this book to get myself back up and running.
I especially enjoyed the physiological,biological and psychological explanations.
I would recommend this book to any lapsed runners such as myself.

Inspiring

Very inspiring! Narrator’s voice is initially a bit annoying but you get used to it
