The Blerch

The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long DistancesThe Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances by Matthew Inman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An expansion of Matthew Inman's wonderful comic in the Oatmeal about why he runs. Many books about running are about nutrition and training along with some motivation, but this book is amazingly different. Like the author, I am a runner and, like the author, I run not so much for my physical health as I do for the mental benefits of running. I am not fast, and it's not about that. I am very familiar with the Blerch, as he calls it. I am familiar with the highs and lows of running and appreciate his frankness and clever way of describing them. Highly recommended, particularly for runners or those who want to understand them.

[I received a galley of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. The physical book is due to be released September 30, 2014.]
