I just finished Running on Empty by Marshall Ulrich. The majority of the book chronicals Ulrich’s journey running from San Francisco to New York at the seasoned age of 57.
But please don’t jump to the conclusion that this is a ‘running’ book. Running on Empty is subtitled ‘An Ultramarathoner’s Story of Love, Loss, and a Record-Setting Run Across America’–and the book lives up to, and far beyond, its title and subtitle.
About so much more than running, we get to understand Marshall on a deep level–as if we’ve known him forever– and see him evolve as a whole person over the course of the book. After completing this book, I actually missed reading it and immediately followed Marshall on Facebook, looked into the documentary ‘Running America’, and wrote this review to share with you.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever related running to life, is wondering how running relates to life, or is just wondering why the hell someone would embark on such a seemingly
crazy ambitious endeavor.
Check it out…its worth it!
