I Had Hoped for More April 6 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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 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 June 3 2011
By J. Triplett - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.

Title is deceiving May 17 2011
By Mike's wife - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ummmm...maybe it's my own fault but this book is more like someone's personal diary. It's a nice book and very heartfelt but not quite what I was looking for or expecting. Get it from the library not worth the purchase.

Misleading Title April 29 2011
By Viking Princess - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is only one running-related message here: women (people) run to overcome stress and unhappiness. Nothing new, and certainly not worth almost 300 pages. The other message is that female/female relationships are good. Oh...!! Perhaps other young running mothers will find the book inspiring, but I doubt if many of them have the financial support to lead the life that Kristen describes.

For an experienced, older female runner and marathoner it was truly one of the least interesting books I have tried to read. Not to deny Kristen the pain her divorce must have caused her, and her perseverance in building a positive life that includes running, I can only conclude that her only real asset as a writer is having the last name of a world-famous endurance athlete.

Blah blah blah Aug. 12 2012
By KD - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
