Just because The Ultimate Runner is out on the shelves, it doesn't mean Tom and I think we are done collecting runners' stories. We will never be done because every runner has a story. Every runner is an inspiration to us.
While I was taking some time off from the Lounge, I missed the daily stories I heard from runners. Many runners have dropped me a note to tell me their amazing tales. Other runners have taken the time to drop them off in the Inspirational Stories section of the Lounge . If you need a pick me up for your running, a bit of motivation of what running can do, take a moment and read these stories by ExtraOrdinary runners like you. They will get you running and keep you moving!
