Mile Markers

The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In Mile Markers, Runner’s World contributing editor Kristin Armstrong captures the ineffable and timeless beauty of running, the importance of nurturing relationships with those we love, and the significance of reflecting on our experiences. This collection considers the most important reasons women run, celebrating the inspiring passion runners have for their sport and illustrating how running fosters a vitally powerful community. With unique wit, refreshing candor, and disarming vulnerability, Armstrong shares her conviction that running is the perfect parallel for marking the milestones of life. From describing running a hardfought race with her tightly-knit group of sweat sisters, to watching her children participate in the sport for the very first time, Armstrong infuses her experiences with a perspective of hope that every moment is a chance to become a stronger, wiser, more peaceful woman. Running threads these touching stories together, and through each of them we are shown the universal undercurrents of inspiration, growth, grace, family, empowerment, and endurance.

Customer Reviews

A must read for any runner

This was an amazing book. One of the best books I've ever read. Her words and stories spoke to me on a personal level. I laughed out loud, cried and most of all can't wait to go for my next run! Great job Kristin Armstrong!

Very inspirational

As a beginning runner, I found this book very inspirational and many of the ideas resonated with me, not just as a runner but as a woman, a mother, and a wife. It was a pleasure to read.
