Audiobook Reviews

FullSizeRender 3.jpg

I find audiobooks a unique means of hearing the inspiring voices of runners. I can listen while I walk to work, wash up at home and travel on the train.

The audiobooks I continue to discover are informative, honest and entertaining. But what I have found most rewarding is that behind the incredible running feats are relatable people. Life, like running, does not always go according to plan but barriers are overcome through sharing personal experiences.

For Christmas 2016 I was fortunate to receive a subscription to Audible. My wish list is growing faster than I can listen to the content.
