Oooh, I like books.<br><br><i><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FCompetitive-Runners-Handbook-Bestselling-Marathons%2Fdp%2F0140469907" target="_blank">Competitive Runner's Handbook</a></i>, because it is the best-written and most comprehensive book on training and racing that I have found.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FDaniels-Running-Formula-Jack%2Fdp%2F0736054928" target="_blank"><i>Daniels' Running Formula</i></a>, because it distills Jack Daniels' encyclopedic knowledge of the sport and vast coaching experience.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FAdvanced-Marathoning-Pete-Pfitzinger%2Fdp%2F0736034315" target="_blank"><i>Advanced Marathoning</i></a> or <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FRoad-Racing-Serious-Runners-Pfitzinger%2Fdp%2F0880118180" target="_blank"><i>Road Racing for Serious Runners</i></a> for a good dose of Pfitzinger.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FLore-Running-Timothy-D-Noakes%2Fdp%2F0873229592" target="_blank"><i>The Lore of Running</i></a>, because it's full of data and analysis.

I have more good running books, but I wouldn't call them essential.

My favorite is Tim Noakes "LORE OF RUNNING" Lot's of trivia, science and stories. I also have, THE COMPETIVE RUNNERS HANDBOOK, DANIELS RUNNING FORMULA, and 2 of Galloway's books. I want to get Galloway's RUN TELL YOU ARE A HUNDRED.<br><br>

<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I have just added these books to the <a href="http://www.librarything.com/catalog/arfenarf" target="_blank">LibraryThing</a> list we built when Dale posted his list of classics. It's linked in my signature below.

I bought the Lore of Running years ago, during my first short stint as a runner, at age 30. I recently dug it out again from a box in the attic and have been reading it. It's a wealth of info!
