Running Through The Wall


Amazon.com has lowered the price of my book to a bargain basement price of $10.98. It has been selling pretty good since it came out in 2003. In fact, sales have picked up in the last few years due to the increased popularity of our sport. Today it was ranked #16 in the "Exercise & Fitness: Marathons" category on Amazon. Note that they do not have an Ultramarathon category. Yet.

Post a comment or contact me via email if you want to order a personal autographed copy of Running Through the Wall for $11, shipping included.


When I started working on the book, I never thought I'd run more than 50 miles at one time. I thought those who ran hundreds were whacked. Ironically, a year and a half later, on the day I received the first shipment from the publisher, I was leaving to run my first hundred miler. Interviewing and writing about some of the best ultrarunners in the world motivated me to run like I never thought possible.

I hope Running Through the Wall will do the same for you.

Run hard out there.

Neal,
This book is my bathroom reader. I have read most of the articles 3 times but many of them I have read over and over again. There are few books that I have read that have inspired me as much and have moved me as far as this book.
Thank you for all the work that went into writing this book. I have suggested it to many friends.
BTW I am running my first trail marathon in September and am hoping for more to come next year, but one race at a time!

Sincerely,
Jason

I haven't done a 100 yet (or even a 50M) but the book sure inspired me to do 50K's!

Neal,

I love this book and hope you might be considering a second edition with a new cast of characters.

I have been really fortunate to meet a bunch of folks from the book at a variety of races and think it adds to my race experience.

Happy Running!
Tammy

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. It's interesting, today the price on Amazon has gone up to $11.20. Supply and Demand?

I also have it as a bathroom reader. The book together with some of the authoring runners' blogs inspired me to run my first ultra last year. Now that I am heading towards my first 50 miler I have again put it in my bathroom to re-read and inspire :)
