I have an entire folder of Once a Runner highlights ready to turn into blog posts. That book has so many life lessons.

Here’s a nugget about the book. My college coach was a pole vaulter on the Florida teams John Parker ran on. A ton of stuff in that book is drawn straight from real life, like the nicknames and what not.

I was really impressed with how much of the feeling of competitive running that Parker captured.
