Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run

Customer Reviews:

I Had Hoped for More

By J. Osterman - April 6, 2011

First, I have to say this book says right in the title it is meant for women, so I don't take off points for feeling like I'm on the outside looking in because I'm a guy. There is some great stuff here for any runner.

The main thing I'd tell anyone is that if you read Kristin Armstrong's "Mile Markers" blog on runnersworld.com you are not going to see anything that really jumps off the page. Indeed, some of the content looked familiar. After digging around the book I found some mouse print up front indicating some material had already appeared online.

If you have not followed Armstrong's blog this is a great read for women. She is a gifted writer in her ability to speak to her audience.

Ugh

By J. Triplett - June 3, 2011

Okay, I get it. Kristin loves her kids and loves being a mom and has overcome a painful divorce. At the beginning of the book she talks about how she converted her blog into the book, so this thing is a rather haphazard gaze through blogging titles.

I read up to chapter 7 and can't take any more of the "I live for my kids" and "I have the worlds greatest friends".

I was certainly hoping this book would be more in line with "Sole Sisters: Stories of Women and Running", but alas, it is more of Kristin blogging her way through a very boring read.

Blah blah blah

Save your money! This book is so sticky sweet you want to puke. Look at me, I'm Kristin Armstrong. I have millions of dollars from my ex-husband and I have soo many friends and super children and I run. Yeah me! There is nothing inspirational about this book. There is nothing to learn from this book. It's as shelf indulgent as your friend on Facebook who post 400 pictures of their kids and another 200 of them drinking wine with their friends. What a waste.
