Anybody read John Bingham's writings?

John Bingham - otherwise known as "the Penguin" or "the man who ruined running in America" ..

An example is here

What he writes is very apt for C25K'ers - past, present and future.

An inspirational life story

Love that quote "The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start." Great thought for the day


I read his penguin book and was quite inspired, though not enough, at the time, to start running. It took c25k for that!

Gotta love The Penguin. The Courage to Start is on my goto list of re-reads whenever I need a bit of remotivation.
