"Running is about how much we can put ourselves on the line, literally and figuratively, to measure up against our true selves and narrow the gap between who we
are and who we want to be." – DR. JASON KARP, The Inner Runner
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 examines how running affects every part of our lives and how all of the parts are intimately interconnected to each other and to the whole person. It explores what it means to be a runner, how the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other helps you become a better person and provides a path to a more meaningful, more creative, more imaginative, more productive, more confident, more healthful, and more successful life. The Inner Runner is as much about life as it is about running.
