Running can be beneficial for any cyclist. From the possibility of doing some specific exercises to escaping from boring and long cycling routes. Likewise, runners sometimes like to replace sneakers with a bike. Either to maintain fitness without the additional muscular stresses that are typical of running or in the process of treating injuries.
In the book assortment of the Bonk, we like to keep some running related books that can help you improve your training sessions, improve your racing performances or simply to have fun with one of the inspiring stories that some of our books offer.

DUEL IN THE SUN John Brant
The 1982 Boston Marathon was a great theatre: Two American runners, Alberto Salazar, a celebrated champion, and Dick Beardsley, a gutsy underdog, going at each other for just under 2 hours and 9 minutes. Neither man broke. The race merely came to a thrilling, shattering end, exacting such an enormous toll that neither man ever ran as well again. Beardsley, the most innocent of men, descended into felony drug addiction, and Salazar, the toughest of men, fell prey to depression. One of the most thrilling marathons ever run—and with the powerful forces of fate that drove these two athletes in the years afterward. Pure fun to read.
DIET CULTS: THE SURPRISING FALLACY AT THE CORE OF NUTRIRION FADS AND A GUIDE TO HEALTHY EATING FOR THE REST OF US Matt Fitzgerald
From “The Four Hour Body,” to “Atkins,” there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the “One True Way” to eat for maximum health….. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all food less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that that is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all these competing views claim to be backed by “science,” a good look at actual nutritional science itself suggests that it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. This is an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits, based on one’s own habits, lifestyle, and genetics/body type. Simple, but so true for everyone.
TRAIN LIKE A MOTHER: HOW TO GET ACROSS ANY FINISH LINE - AND NOT LOSE YOUR FAMILY, JOB, OR SANITY Dimity McDowell, Sarah Bowen Shea
Some jobs are hard. Some boring. But, there is no job as being a mother. We will just leave this with this two quotes……..
“A typical race morning usually starts out looking like a scene from a zombie movie: individuals or pairs of people walking down a deserted street, all headed in the same direction.... Inevitably, regardless of the weather, U2's "Beautiful Day" streams out of loudspeakers.”
“And then there's the perverse joy of subtly working in references to marathon training in daily life, say at the post office or while waiting outside my first-graders' classrooms at the end of the school day.”
