I am very inspired by John "The Penguin" Bingham, who began running at 43, being overweight. I ordered three of his books tonight off of Amazon. I figure getting myself mentally prepared to run will be one of the biggest obstacles I will face as I lose the weight that I want to lose in order to start running. Here are the books I ordered:
- The Courage to Start: A Guide to Running for Your Life
- No Need for Speed: A Beginner's Guide to the Joy of Running
- Running for Mortals: A Commonsense Plan for Changing Your Life with Running
I held off on getting his book "Marathoning for Mortals." I'd love to complete one, but that is certainly a way off!
