Today is The Day - The Ultimate Runner is Alive!
It's a special day for Tom and I, not because our names are on the front cover, but because over 50 stories, photos and expert tips - from ExtraOrdinary runners like you - are now packaged and can be shared.
We are so excited that these running authors have their stories in the hands of other runners. Some of these authors you know from past stories in the Lounge and some are new - but all are incredible.
Here is the list of the contributors - stop by and congratulate them on sharing a piece of their running with others. This is their day!
