Running with the Mind of Meditation: Lessons for Training Body and Mind by Sakyong Mipham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's the beginning of the year, so it felt right to try and refocus on running. I don't remember where I saw this, but I thought it looked interesting, so I put it on Christmas wish list.
After receiving this book as a gift, I started reading it during my annual New Years vacation. I read the bulk of the book once I returned. The first twenty-five percent of the book was tedious for me to read, I couldn't connect with the material. Why? I'm not exactly sure.
The book didn't really offer any earth shattering advise on how to improve, but rather how to focus and bring a mindful meditative mind along when you run. I did pick up a few things that I will try to apply to my next run, that is when I'm not snowed in or facing -15 degree temperatures.
Winter is awesome.
