Once a Runner by John L. Parker, Jr.

This is an excellent story of a collegiate runner and the trials it takes to become the best. 

I think of myself as a jogger and have actually run races where I was so exhausted I couldn't finish.  If only I would have read this book years ago.  I would have learned that even the fastest runners have to run past their own endurance to beat their best.

If you've never been even just a jogger or run in a race before you may not understand the essence of this book. 

Once a Runner captures the essence of what it means to be a competitive runner, to devote your entire existence to a single-minded pursuit of excellence.
