Runners know there's a profound truth behind the old joke: Running is fifty percent physical and ninety percent mental. The Mindful Runner focuses on the mental side of running. It thoroughly explores the complex landscape of the runner's mind, offering fresh perspectives on how to get the most out of yourself while enjoying the journey along the way.

Do you enjoy reading about running but think you've heard it all? Then this book will delight and surprise you. Full of great stories, it offers new ways to think about running. Running can be a transformative experience, or it can just be great exercise with a tidy bonus of enhanced self-esteem and self-awareness. Learn how to maximize your mental game out there to reach your goals; you're guaranteed to gain a greater appreciation for the rewards and possibilities inherent in running. The Mindful Runner builds on the author's first running book, The Tao of Running, but broadens the focus to all runners going any distance, ensuring that you're covered with advice on mental strategies that apply in any running situation. Running is a great adventure. Make sure you're not missing out on it.


Long-time columnist for Ultrarunning magazine and author of The Tao of Running, Gary Dudney is thrilled to share his hard-won understanding of the mind of the runner from being "out there" himself during 40 years of running. He has also written advice pieces and adventure stories for all the major running magazines. Gary has completed over 200 marathons and ultramarathons, including over sixty 100-mile races. His home base is Monterey, California.
