BRENDAN LEONARD HATES RUNNING. He hates it so much that he once logged fifty-two marathon-length runs in fifty-two weeks. Now he’s sharing everything he’s learned about the sport so that you can hate it too.

Packed with wisdom, humor, attitude, tips, and quotes—and more than sixty illuminating charts—I Hate Running and You Can Too delivers a powerful message of motivation from a truly relatable mentor.

Leonard nails the love-hate relationship most runners have with the sport. He knows the difficulty of getting off the couch, teaches us to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, embraces the mix of running with walking. And he shares all that he’s learned—celebrating the mantra of “Easy, light, smooth, and fast,” observing that any body that runs is a runner’s body.

Plus Leonard knows all the practical stuff, from training methods to advice for when you hit a setback or get injured. Even the answer to that big question a lot of runners occasionally ask: Why? Easy: Running helps us understand commitment, develop patience, discover self-discipline, find mental toughness, and prove to ourselves that we can do something demanding. And, of course, burn off that extra serving of nachos.

From a Relatable Mentor Who Understands the Struggle of Getting Out the Door and Taking those First Steps

I am usually as excited about going for a run as I am about flossing my teeth. This might be why it takes me forever to get out the door and run those first few steps, even after I’ve been dressed and ready to go for a half hour (okay, an hour sometimes).

Finding Your Reasons for Running Can Be an Achievement in Itself

When I feel far too busy or overwhelmed with life to possibly consider going for a run, I go anyway, and I know two things will always happen:

1. Five or ten minutes into the run, the feeling of being overwhelmed and too busy will be gone.

2. I have more hope for the world fifteen minutes after I finish running than I did five minutes before I started. If that’s all I get out of a run, that’s still pretty good.
