FAILURE IS AN OPTION
“We’re not at parkrun any more,” I mutter to myself, quietly longing for the presence of nice marshals in high-visibility vests.
Failure Is an Option is the story of an average runner who sets out to discover just how far he can go. With the support (and misgivings) of his family, and aware that his quickest years are behind him, Matt Whyman leaves the Saturday morning 5K to push towards 100-mile ultramarathons and beyond. By slowing things down to run a very long way, he joins a growing number of men and women from all walks of life striving to do something extraordinary.
I really enjoyed this book as it is very relatable to the average Joe. I did smile as so many of his characteristics and also his mistakes I could relate to my own journey with long distance hiking.
