Our first book will be
North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail by Scott Jurek with Jenny Jurek
A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, NORTH is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.
MAXINE PRESTO (aka Short Stix) - Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker - fresh off the trail
A former Fleet Feet employee who worked at the store as a high school kid, a dedicated runner and vegan, a terrific writer and all 'round inspiring person will share her experiences of 5 months and 12 days on the trail. An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker travels the 2,190.9 mile trail end-to-end within one hiking season. Only about one in four of the thousands who attempt the thru-hike make it all the way. Maxine averaged between 15 to 20 miles a day.
Our book club facilitator will lead the group in a discussion about the book and Maxine will share her trail experiences and stories!

Things to think about when you start reading:
Food for thought: What motivates us?
It is often said that we are either running away from something or running toward something. Are runners a bunch of disciplined folks looking to build a healthier lifestyle or we driven by some desire to break our bodies physically and spiritually?
