A Few Kind Words

"Mark was so much fun to be around. His presentation was a huge success—informative yet funny—and had everyone laughing."—Trish Beatty, Twin City Track Club, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

"Downright hilarious. This is probably the best gift book for runners ever written.", on Runners of North America—A Definitive Guide to the Species

"It's funny, entertaining, easy to read, truthful, insightful. Most important of all, it makes you want to go for a run.", on The Runner's Rule Book

"When it comes to running, writing about running, and laughing at those who run, Mark Remy stands alone atop the podium."

"He's kind of the Mo Rocca, Ira Glass, and Mark Twain (without the accent) of the running world." —

"I literally laughed out loud so hard at the descriptions that my non-running husband decided he needed to read this one as well." review

"Mark Remy is the kind of guy with whom you’d want to go for a run."Julie Deardorff, Chicago Tribune
