Once A Runner Available Again

Scott Bush at US Distance Runner reports that the John L. Parker classic will be reprinted and available in April.

I never read it until about three years ago when I got it for Christmas (a few new copies were available on and my sister-in-law paid cover price for it). Being a runner of the late 80s / early 90s, hardly anyone I knew had even heard of it. It was probably more meaningful to read it when I was no longer a serious runner, as it brought back things I had long forgotten. I certainly didn't need it when I was 20 and put in weeks of 100 miles on top of 60+ hours at work.
