    The idea for this blog and podcast came from looking my growing collection of books about running and realizing I was aquiring them faster than I was reading them! So I wondered if creating a virtual book club for runners could be fun. Here is the list of the books, e-books, and audiobooks I have and will consider covering in some way.
